Weird one this... it’s a bit like posh special brew. Sweet malty base, with an assertive hoppy bitterness. Pretty tasty stuff though. Nice and warming, but I can’t help feeling I should be drinking it on a park bench.

Pours a honey color with a small but thick head. Aroma of citrus and maybe a little malt for good measure, not overpowering though. Taste is bitter and malty seems highly carbonated. Overall a pretty good beer and worth the try.

A great combination of the malty-hoppy goodness of a dipa or iipa with the sessionability of a lager. So sad that I only had bought one (portalebirra). It really hit the spot!

A fruity/citrusy/moderate-high bitter imperial lager. It’s pretty good, not amazing, likely better fresher.

375ml dark green bottle wrapped in brown paper. Trade with Skinnyviking. Shared with Finn. Decent off-white head leaving solid artwork on the glassware. Close to clear amber body. Smell of fresh and dusty hops. Fresh citrus taste, including red orange and pine, together with moments of brown malts. Citrus peels to the ending. Full bodied. Smooth. Well-made. Lovely (Tromsø 14.10.2015).
