3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2015 On tap at Una. Aroma is very bready with some cracker notes as well. Medium hop notes of stone fruit, tropical fruit and floral notes. Some light resin notes and a bit of a light sulfur note. Pours a hazy, pale gold with a large, thick, white head that steadily recedes. High lacing and small legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with a moderate cracker and bread note. Medium light bitterness. Medium hop notes with some light citrus and resin character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice pale ale, but it has a slightly off note in the aroma (perhaps because it was the last pour from the keg?) Decent hop character though.

Off white head, near clear deep golden body, tight even lacing. Lots of hops in scents, not too strong though, and some kind of milkish malts. Tastes a wooden blend of roasted malts and leafy hops. Fruity-wooden-caramellic. Finishes in soft polished malts, old milk, apricotish creamy hops. Soft carbonation and good body. Original blend. [17cl @ Ølhallen]

Tap @ Pingvinen, Bergen. This brew is floral through and through; aroma, gaste, palate - the works. The breadth and depth of hoppiness os really spectacular. A great pale ale!

On tap at UNA Bryggeri, pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Nose is quite hoppy for a pale ale, with stone fruits and biscuity malt to back. Flavour follows accordingly, with tropical fruits, resinous hops and biscuity malt. Well-balanced and quite a bit more interesting than most pales. Great stuff.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap, Henrik’s, Bergen, 27/10/14. Heaped, slightly burnished honey amber. Bright resinous aroma awash with sticky hop cone, corking fresh Rubicon guava and lychee, mint and strawberry pushing a 9. Beautiful crisp stewed hop flavour with grapefruit, honey, peach, dragon fruit and curry leaf-like impressions reminiscent of old school Punk. Honeycomb freshness begging a session. The best Norwegian beer I’ve tasted.
