3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A gusher, producing a small, off-white head over an almost clear, golden body. The aroma has quite a lot of catpee, with peaches and orange. Some maltyness. It’s full to medium bodied and semi-dry,with a pleasant carbonation level. Pine cones, citrus peel and some catpee in the flavor, not much maltyness. Bitter, fruity finish. A quite pleasant one, drinks easily too. 131231

Bottle from my main men at Mane Liquor. Roadie tho. Big hoppy citrus notes: grapefruit, orange with a nice light floral hint. Drinks nice and clean - lager body makes it go down smooth but with big stonefruit IPA flavours. Nice lingering bitterness, could definitely sink a few of these.

Bottled (thanks laiti!). Golden colour, mediumsized creamy white head. Aroma is nice fruits, nectar and mellow floral notes to go with it alog with a nice balancing maltiness. Flavour is being rather similar in a very pleasant way. Refreshing and nice brew indeed!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle form Brewdog online. Pours hazy amber yellow, good-sized white head, decent lacing. Aromas are grapefruit and pine. Taste has more lemon-edge citrus sharpness, bit of malt backbone, but not a lot. Light body, thin texture, bitter finish. Good beer, but not a good lager.

Golden, mildly clouty, nice thick head, that lasts. dry musky aroma, that has a hint of malt and metal. Malt, metal, apricot, metallic hoppy aftertaste, that really magnifies. A nice one. High in carbon

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Olbutikken, Copenhagen (BB July 2015???). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately to heavily hoppy (grapefruit, resin), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, heavily bitter. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Stark, overattenuated, and badly overhopped (esp. in terms of bitterness, but the aroma is overwhelming with resin-grapefruit rawness as well). A drain pour. These guys really need to try some beers like Haand Britannia and De La Senne Taras Boulba for some inspiration on how to make enjoyable low-gravity beers.
