Aroma: Malt: Medium-light DMS, bready, Hops: Medium, fruity, apricot, spicy. Light sulfur. Medium Diecetyl. Appearance: Clear, light gold body. Small white head, good retention. Flavour: Malt: Light bready, Hops: Medium resiny, light fruity,lingering, citrus, Dry finish. Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium high carbonation. Overall: A hop orientated blonde. But the aroma is promising more than the flavour delivers. Still highly drinkable. 330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 6B. Blonde Ale

wimpyjoe (3715) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Pale yellow-blonde with no head. A bit affected by its clear bottle but retains some sweetness. Slightly skunk aroma.

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body under a small, white head. The aroma is fruity and quite cheesy on the nose, with a touch of pale malts. It’s quite fruity on the palate, with a faint bitterness. Medium body, very soft on the palate, a tad sweetish. Lasting finish with cheesy hops and pale malts. And a citrusy touch. Far from interesting this one. Not bad though. 140724

Pours clear golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, herbal, grass and hint of motor oil. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

Geokkjer (5719) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
Medium white head doesn’t last, but quickly disappears. Clear paleish yellow body with strong carbonation. Nutty fruity aroma with floral buttery papery notes. Dry papery taste with floral notes. Mid-to-light body. Faintly abrasive mouthfeel. Dryish fruity floral aftertaste with metallic notes. It smells quite nice, kind of like a lagery version of Spitfire, but the flavour is thin and not really very impressive. (0.33l bottle, from Meny Strømmen.)

OleR (4799) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2014
A clear and bright straw colored body, under rapidly dying white head. Clean but modest aroma of dry pilsner malts and hay. Slick moutfeel, body is less than medium full. Clean semi-dry malt base. Mild but distinct bitterness. Not very flavorfull, but crisp and clean with ok drinkability. [0.33 l clear bottle bought at my local Meny]
