3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle to finish off a joyful evening at Håndverkerstuene. Close to clear amber in body appearance. Huge, loose, and bubbly white head. Fine aroma of herbal hops added by a fresh citrus touch. Wheat citrus in flavour supported by spices and lemon. Candy sweet backbone offset by a dry bitter finale. Good drinkability (Oslo, 15.09.2012).
