3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 Bottled at Haket, Gothenburg. Clear, pale golden beer with a large-bubbled white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma with some grainy notes. The flavor is lemony and piney, with hops and fruits. Medium to thin mouthfeel and bitter finish. Not bad, just not that interesting. Rating: 5-3-5-3-11-2.7. (060824)
Bottle, thx to tarjei. A clear, golden beer with a small, off-white head. Grapefruit peel in the aroma, not much else actually, just a hint of a bitter in the background. Strange, but quite nice. The flavor gives the same impression, only it’s the pink grapefruit, not the yellow. Fine bitterness in the finish. Medium body and ok co2 level. A refreshing beer, but too focused on the grapefruit. Gets a bit boring and challenging after a while. (081108)

(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, fully golden with a somewhat rough, white head. Odd aroma of lager and citrus. Medium-bodied and extremely dry with a quinine like bitterness. If anybody ever wondered how their bathing water would taste like, this is the answer. 240806

Pale golden color, not much head. Woody hoppy, nutty malty aroma. Malty with evident fruity grapefruit flavor. Grapefruit is nice, othwerwise is not impressive.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask at Jerusalem Tavern, Farringdon, London, 1 Aug) Colour is amber with almost no head. Nose is fruity with grapefruit, rather one dimensional. Taste is fruity with a dominant grapefruit character and some hints of nuts (almonds). I wouldn’t call this complex, rather one dimensional, but still, nice and refreshing.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
(Bottle at Haket in Gothenburg) Clear golden color with a white head. Sweet unpleasant corn like scent, like a really cheap lager. A bit fresh, but mostly sour taste of a lager made on corn. Thin mouth feel and low bitterness.

Aroma gives citrus fruits and slightly caramel malts. Taste is similar easy going, to strong for a session beer, but tasted great after being frozen a few times.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bright golden orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A strong hoppy nose with lots of citrus fruit but not especially grapefruit. The taste is dry and hoppy to begin with, the citrus element is present, but again, not particularly grapefruity. There is a hint of malt in the background. The finish is dry and citrusy. (Bottle - purchased from the brewery’s stall at the Sandringham Christmas food and Drink Festival, 2005).

Cask on tap at the Jeruselem Tavern, London. Hazy gold colour with sparse white head. Pink grapefruit aroma, pink grapefruit throughout really. Refreshing after my cycle ride to the pub but malt/cereal/hops are pretty much subordinated by the pink grapefruit. But is this really a beer or a fruit flavoured alcoholic drink? Or is that what cider and perry are? Don’t really care as I love this pub. So atmospheric and I rather enjoy coming here. Beers aren’t bad either

Nose of hops, flowers and yes... grapefruit. I like grapefruit. Clear, copper coloured, with a thin, white head. Taste is moderate bitter and a bit sweet. Hoppy and fruity with some spice in it. Nice brew.
