jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Tap @ Borefts 2012. Pours a light golden color with a tiny head. The nose is skunky pineapple, some cheddar and sea grass. The taste is gunky light grain, some mango and cheesy pineapple pie. Very soft, light body. Overall, I’m a bit suprised to read these other reviews. Maybe everyone else’s palate was wrecked when they had this? This beer was soft, tasty, subtle.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2012
Tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours clear gold with a fine, bubbly white head. Definite tangy hop nose with tangerine and light pee. Light sweet flavor with doughy, biscuity malts, some straw. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Dry finish with more tangerine, white sugar and dough. Great nose, so so flavor and condition. Pretty decent overall.

Palme (4120) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2013
On tap @ Borefts 2012. Light blurry golden-yellow in color and it has a small sidesticking bubbly just off-white head. Smells of citrus, hay, it’s floral and reminds me of summer. Not directly fantastic, but not bad either. It’s soft on the carbonation and glidy-watery in the mouthfeel. More citrus in the taste. It has a orange-bitterness with a strange cucumber thing in the background. Not bad for a summer ale. 28.09.2012

Draft. A dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops, malt, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, hay, and citrus fruits, leading to a dry and bitter finish.
