3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught@Pikkulintu, rated 2010-12-29) Hazy golden with a small head. Freshly citrusy nose on the verge of cat pee. Crisply citrus-grassy, dry and bitter flavor, balanced with decent maltiness. Long, bitter aftertaste. Almost medium body, quite low CO2. A pretty crisp and tasty APA, despite the slight cat pee hints.

Draught at Ørsted
Hazy deep blond color. Earthy hop aroma, a lot of wet manure and cat piss. Dry mouthfeel, dry toffee flavor, this is what I need tonight, and strong bitterness, with a quite resiny hopping. Very pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It pours a big, off-white head and a more or less clear golden body. Really hop-dominated aroma, with citrus-peel, some cat pee, apricot and pinecones. Not much influence from the malts. The same goes for the flavor, which is quite bitter. Quite acidic, but not in a way that makes me think infection. Too lemony though. Well, it drinks quite nice, but it’s definitely not a beer I could drink all night. 110219

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Really not a bad beer at me all; don’t get me wrong. Just doesn’t cut when I consider the vast amounts of APA’s out there. Aroma is almost absent and the body lacks some residual sugars to counterweigh the hops that, although not particularly bitter, seem to become somewhat harsh.
