3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, classic golden color with a one-finger, creamy, antique white head. The head dissipates too quickly, or I would’ve scored its appearance a 4. A well, balanced malt/floral hop bouquet is noted. A relatively rich mouthfeel yields to some mild astringency late. There’s something peculiar lying a the flavor’s foundation that disrupts the malt and hop characters. Almost like petroleum jelly. Nearly flavorless, yet has a distinctive flavor. It’s not off putting. Just disrupts what would otherwise be the natural flavors of the ale. It takes on the hop character and bitterness of a session IPA, but with a smidgeon better malt backbone.

Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a clear amber with a medium sized, white, long lasting head. Aroma is not very intense. Bitter, grassy, piney hops, sweeter pale malts and some citrus. Taste is pretty bitter up front, very nice pine, slight malty sweetness, but just a plain, crisp pale ale. Medium carbonation, smooth but crisp body.

Bottle courtesy of Sloth. Pours a light amber with a small thick head. Aroma does not tell easily the true picture of the hoppy goodness, with light malt, biscuit, and grass. Flavor is the definition of a drinkable session, clean citrus forward hops.

Bottle. Best before: 07/15/11. A crystal clear amber pour with a two finger-thick beige head. A pleasantly pungent aroma of pine trees, grapefruits, citrus rinds, and plenty of spiciness. Goes down relatively thin, crisp, and refreshing. Some semi-sweet caramel upfront in the taste along with a little biscuity maltiness. Lots of grapefruity and grassy hoppiness in the mildly drying finish. Some light spiciness throughout. Very nice. Very sessionable.
