3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clear golden color with a little head. Aroma is very fresh, grassy and fruity, even tropical notes can be found, which is rare in a beer that is so mild. Taste is very mild and light; the palate is so easily drinkable that it is difficult to notice that there is alcohol in this beer. It is even slightly watery but not disturbingly. Taste is light bitter and fruity. Aroma promised more than the taste delivered but as an easy, fast beer this is very decent.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle [thanks to Rosenbergh] @ home. Hazy orange color, full sized white head that lasts for a decent while amd leaves fair to good lacing. Superb aroma of malts, hops, fruit hops, bitter, slightly tropical fruits. Tastes about the same: malts, lots of fruit hops, nicely bitter. Medium body, suitable carbonation. Very very nice.

Bottle shared with McTapps. A classy one. Hoppy nose with some grass and low carbo. High drinkabilty but also a strange bitter end. Well, not strange. Simple one - I do not like it. But in overall - that one is classy.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2014 Originally rated on 17.5.2013. Yellow to orange beer with a huge white head. Grapefruit, grapefruit and grapefruit. Lots of bitterness. Not the most refreshing APA out there and also a bit too thin because of the low ABV.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a huge fluffy yellowish head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops, malt, lemons, and spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of citrusy hops, malt, and dust, leading to a bitter finish. The body is loght.
