Wild Swan is white gold in colour with aromas of light bitter lemon, a hint of herbs and a subtle spiciness. A great refreshing beer.

McNeillR (1133) - SCOTLAND - JAN 29, 2014
Very pale golden with a lasting white filmy head. Farty light malt, not much else in the nose. Soft Elderflower, watered down lemon juice, mop bucket glean towards the finish. Thinish and oily. Linger is cool and crisp but flavourless.

RuneStumo (2172) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2014
25.01.2014. 0,5l Bottle. Spesialbutikken Vaaland, Bryne. Pale yellow see threw colour with white head. Thin! Aroma is hoppy with light notes of juniperus and spruce. Some fruitiness. Almost no malt, only some pale weak bitterness at the end. This is more like a hoppy lemonade....?

Beer4000 (4433) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pale golden body with a nice white head. Refreshing aroma of pale malt, and slightly acidic fruit with some flowers. Light flavor of mild malt and hint of fruit, not much bitterness. Rather plain and boring.

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. A lightly hazy one, yellow to golden in color and with a white two-finger head that lasts. There’s a biscuity maltyness in the aroma, with citrusy and piney hops. The flavor has a nice bitterness to deal with the pale malts, and the hops also leaves flavors of citrus and pine cones. Medium body, decent carbonation and a mostly bitter finish. A quenching and quite tasteful one, especially considering the ABV it’s nice. 140110

Bottle. Pours slightly cloudy yellow with a big white head. Aroma of malt, fruitiness, some floral notes, citrus and some herbal notes. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some citrus and herbal notes. Medium to thin body, average carbonation.

Douberd (2165) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle, 500 ml, poured into a big tulup. ABV 3.5% Pale golden yellow in colour, crystal clear, with two fingers of white soapy head, very good retention and light lacing on the glass. Aroma of grass, soap, a little bit of lemon. Taste of grass, hay, lemon, lemongrass, lime leaves. Mildly bitter on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, good carbonation towards the high side. Overall quite good, very refreshing and with such a low ABV it could be an all day beer.

Vignale (2031) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2013
Cask på Bishop Gustav Malmö. Ljust gul, med en aning grönt i färgen, ungefär som citronsaft. Inget skum. Lätt frisk fruktig och lätt gräsig doft. Mycket lätt kropp, fina rena smaker av passionsfrukt, lime, gräs. Lätt sötma, fruktig och en lite gräsig besk med inslag av tallskott. Väldigt lättdrucken men men fina smaker. Inte så årstidstypisk kanske.

Pours a very pale straw, gold with frothy white head. The smell is quite hoppy with a hint of lemon. The taste is the same
