ABS (624) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle from VInmonopolet Sørlandssenteret. Straw to golden color. Some white head. Malt, pine, grapefruit nose. Medium and grainy mouth feel. Low carbonation. Hay, pine, some grapefruit, some malt flavour. Bitter. Surprisingly malt heavy. The grainyness ruins it a bit.

pours a cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, pine and citrus. The taste has lots of hops, pine dominating, but there is a good amount of malt balancing.

yngwie (14629) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle, at Øltorget, Vulkan. It’s a hazy, golden beer with a small, off-white head leaving lacings. There’s lots of grapefruit on the nose, pine cones, some tropical fruits and a touch of malts. The flavor is quite bitter, the hops dominates for sure, with grapefruit, pine cones and some tropical fruits. The malts are pushed to the back, leaving just traces of sweetness. Medium body, dry on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Lasting bitter finish with grapefruits and bitterness. A tasteful, easy drinkable beer with a tad too much bitterness I think. 140503
