3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours amber gold with big foamy off white head and creamy lace. Aromas of pine, grass, citrus, a touch of unpleasant yeast, but a nice caramel maltiness. Med light carbonation, Light medium body, a generous bitterness, and a lightly sharp mineral yeSt character. Lingering malt yeast and hop balance. Satisfying and tasty, but the aroma does it the most justice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours clear amber color with a medium sized off-white head, leaving a good lacing. Nose of caramel, citrus fruits and straw. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and quite bitter. Medium bodied, watery texture and average CO2. An OK brew, maybe a little overrated. ★★★

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle shared with friends at Skarven. Pours a huge and dense off-white head, some of it remaining. Spotty lacing. Apricot coloured body. Dusty hops and semi-sweet malts to the nose. Flavoured with lightly spiced fruits and mild honey sweetness promoting a rather succulent taste profile. Fresh fruit bitterness to the finish. Soft in the mouth. Nice (Tromsø, 30.11.2012).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a 0.75 L bottle. Tall foamy near-white top. Body is deep gold colored with good clarity. Floral, grassy and light citrus-fruity hop nose. A lightweighter. Slick in the mouth. Light caramel accented malt body. Fruity and floral hop flavor. Gentle bitterness. Short, mildlly fruity-bitter ending. Not very complex, but very refreshing and certainly great for sessions.
