Caramel and some hops in the aroma. Golden colour with a head that disappears quite quickly. Medium sweet with a bitterness that are really balanced. light body with a slight oily texture. average carbonation. Bitter finish. Over all a OK beer, a bit thin maybe but refreshing.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
An average bitter in every sense. Not enough hops, taste or any redeeming features for my liking. Soapy & bland, even a tot of organic ginger cordial didn’t make it more palatable. A poor substitute for a real IPA.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear, amber colour with a slightly off-white foam that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing on the side of the glass.
Smells metallic, earthy and a bit soapy.. it somehow reminds me of a Swedish soda called ’Julmust’ which is sold around Christmas.
Every sip immediately has a sweet taste, but it doesn’t take long before a heavy bitterness hits your taste buds.
Overall, this is an alright beer, though I find the finish a bit too astringent. I suppose this could be a refreshing beer on a warm summer day, but I couldn’t have more than one due to the unpleasant astringency.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle): Pours a clear amber with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon zest, grapefruits and some mild grassy notes. Faint hoppy taste, some elements of malt and a touch of earthy, grassy bite. Moderate bitterness and quite average overall but very drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ingen høydare i deg hele tatt. Litt for besk. Lite smak. Uspennende. Rett og slett en kjedelig øl.
