olio (5854) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2014
50 cl bottle.
Pours clear pale golden color with a large white head. Nice hoppy citric aroma with grassy and slightly malty notes. Citric fruits, grassy hops and some gooseberries on the flavor. Nice balance, quite refreshing too. A solid APA.

Holmen1 (2272) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2014
Fra flaske på Mandag i annen juni-14: veldig lys, og med storboblet skum. Lite smak i forhold til den fine, syrlig humlearomaen. Ettersmaken kan best karakteriseres som fraværende. Svært liten kropp for sine 5 vekttall. Utterly forgettable.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2014

gunnar (5096) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 18, 2014
Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours clear straw coloured with a small creamy white head. Strong inviting aroma of herbs and spices, fruits and grass. Taste is short lived with a grassy herbal attack, more like a tweaked up pilsener.

rosenbergh (6472) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Draught at the Kitty's, Helsinki, Finland. Clear pale golden colour with a small white head. Fruity and perfumy hops, moderate bitterness and some dry woody malt in the aroma. The flavour is fruity, mildly bitter with woody notes, mild cider notes and malt. Highly drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerhunter111 (6773) - Hasborn, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein klares goldgelbes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch nach exotischen Früchten, hopfig. Geschmack hopfig, fruchtig, dezent bitter, grasig, klasse!
