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.

Nelson humlen dufter himmelsk som altid, og har noter af frisk ananas. Øllet står flot i glasset, og skummet er tæt og vedholdende. På trods af den lave alkoholprocent har den en god smag og fylde. Dog en anelse vandet, men overall en rigtig fin pale ale.

500ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Well, here I sit in the pub where I last saw Oliver, slightly welling up, and not necessarily able to focus so much on the beer. But it’s a beer that’s befitting of a person and an occassion that demands respect. The first thing you notice is that it’s quite fresh and lively. Slightly hazy, but a good head, Full of character, and with the kind of bitterness that I really appreciate. No negatives, you enjoy every moment. And even when gone, those good things linger in your head for a long time. A real pleasure to encounter one like this. So I raise a toast to you, Oliver McFadden, it was an honour to have known you. Hmm, the question is now whether I should review this beer...
