3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Waitrose. Very clear blond colour with big fluffy white head. Aroma grassy hops and a bit of fruit, orange and tropical fruit. Bit of creamy maltiness too. Taste is more fruity than bitter. Kiwi maybe, something exotic. Finish has a touch of bitterness and grass too, and a bit of biscuit. Maybe a touch thin in the mouth though. Quite nice though.

Bottle from Star Grocery. Pours cloudy golden with a decent off-white head and a grassy aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a grassy bitter finish. Not all that fruity, but it’s quite drinkable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Schouskjelleren, Oslo. Light golden yellow clear body, medium creamy white head. Aroma is faint citrusy hop notes with hints of grass and pale malts. Taste is citric straw notes with hints of yeast. Very little of the fruit promised in the ad. OK, but a bit lacking in complexity even for an APA.

Smell like a lager. The kind of lager I used to buy when I was a youth. Looks like a lager too; all anaemic and wanting. Nice initial flavour of jasmine and elder flower with a nice leafy, slightly nettley hop character on the pallet and the finish. Bit lacking in body but quite nice.

Pale, yellow beer with very small head. Beautiful nose of tropical fruit and dry, winey notes. Very fuity palate with the bitterness growing and long-lasting. Low carbonation reminds me of cask beer in a pub. Great beer.

[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Brilliantly golden beer, great white head – really looks a picture. Sharp, grassy citrus hop on the nose – very chardonnay like. Fruity hop on the palate, before the citrus flavours take over. Really very nice
