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. ★★★

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).
