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.

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. ★★★

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Meny Oslo City enjoyed at home
A slow gusher, deep copper hazy, massive tanned head. Takes a long time to pour this one. Smells of tropical fruits, bread, peach, malts, yeast and spices. Moderate sweet, quite alot of peach up front, nice malts, some bread or biscuits, very drinkable. Medium bitter finish, some citrus zests back there. What an awsome bitter! Very sessionable, balanced, nice hop aromas and malt backbone playing nice together. A very subtile beer where all the ingredients together makes the aroma and flavor
