2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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
