3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle @ olio, BBE 23.10.2012
Aroma is stale with lots of gooseberry bush, some fruits and nettles. Flavour is rather stale too with gooseberry bush, nettles, hints of fruits and ash. Too stale stuff although the hops are nice here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden beer, a floral punch in the nose. A clean citra flavour, citrus and herbs. Bitter finish. Not complex, and other hops would have improved, but it is a next to perfect refreshment. Great lawnmower stuff.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy orange with a not too durable head. Aroma is mainly pine and resin, some less tropical fruit (mango, grapefruit, subtle lichee) plus some malt. Beautiful Citra smell. Low carbonation, oilish consistency. In the flavour the malt is dominated by resiny-tropical hops, and quite a strong bitterness. This may be not the most flavoursome pale ale ever (in fact, it is not too assertive in terms of roma while drinking) but it is very drinkable and refreshing. A fast paced beer not to muse about but to drink and enjoy.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brygden doftar kattpiss (usch), bröd och citrus. Smakrik men spretig. Ingen harmoni. Lite väl maffig beska. Citra humlen är missbrukad, tyvärr.
