2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice hazy light yellow to orange body. The head is small, frothy, white and short-lived, still ok lacing. Moderate to faint aroma with pale malts and citric hints. The taste is initially light to moderate sweet, very light bitter and traces of something sour. In the finish the bitterness is more obvious, although it’s still pretty light and with a sour twist. Grainy flavours, some caramel and very faint citrus. Decent mouthfeel. Rather refreshing, but the sour bitterness in the finish reminds me a bit too much of macro pilseners.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 6 months before BB date, from Jacobs på Holtet, Oslo]

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours hazy orange-gold, with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet malt, with a little bread and hops. Flavor is similar, with a moderate amount of hops nicely balancing the malt. A bit on the sweet side, but well balanced, and enjoyable. Enough hops to be a "real" pils, instead of pils as a synonym for light lager, as is often the case.
