3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 33 cl. Clear golden with a dense white head, quickly diminishing becoming a small fine layer. Very fresh fruity hoppy aroma of passionfruit, kiwi, lime, light vanilla. Quite enticing. Flavor is medium sweet light maltiness and lots of fruity hops, leading to a medium bitter finish. Very well balanced with a light body, but the oily hops make this is a perfect quencher and by far the best beer I’ve so far from Ugly Duck.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle @ Øltorget, Mathallen Oslo. Slightly hazy golden body with a small off-white head. Fantastic fruity aroma dominated by Nelson hops, tropical and grapes. Flavor is soft and smooth malty with fruit and quite much bitterness. Medium to thin body, but definitively acceptable at 4,6% ABV. Aftertaste has a sharp grassy bitterness. A fine, refreshing and tasty session pale ale with quite good balance. Think I may pull the lawnmower a few times with this as a reward.
