3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, from trade with Cunningham. It pours a clear, golden body and a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is on the hoppy side, with a touch of almost butterscotchy maltyness. Orange peel, resins and freshly mown grass. The flavor has a nice bitterness, balancing the malty backdrop. Grass, resins and orange peel. Medium to full body, quite dry. Mostly bitter finish. Tastes nice, drinks easily and is also quite quenching. 121124

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bärnstensfärgad öl med ett vitt ganska flyktigt skum. Maltig doft med visst citrusinslag. Medelfyllig med maltighet och en grapefruktbeska. Ett helt OK öl men inget som utmärker sig.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Systembolaget, Stockholm)
6 Very sweet fruity aroma, but the fruitiness reminds me of fake sweeties’ fruit flavours. Some vegetal aspects too, maybe creamed corn (to Phil).
4 pale orange, nice persistent tight head.
6 Very grainy taste, a touch of the creamed corn here too - the taste of it is what identified that aspect of the aroma for me. Nicely attenuated, crisp and with a dry nutty bitterness.
4 Crisp bitter body, crisp carbonation. Finish is very dry, plenty of bitterness, resiny and sticks to the tongue for a while.
13 Do enjoy it, even though the vegetal aspects occasionally pop out.
