AROMA: grass, hay, heather
APPEARANCE: golden, clear, sparkling, minimal head, white foam,
TASTE: light sweetness, lightly bitter,
PALATE: medium body, sticky, lively, not too long finish
OVERALL: starts as a refreshing pilsner, turns to a nice summer ale, but then the heather kicks---heather and beer do not mix

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours yellow, with an airy head. Not a lot going on in the aroma department her, but a light caramel malt can be recognized by good will. Flavour is sweet and obviously has a fair amount of elderberry, but there’s also fruity notes of apple and sweet citrus along with honey and very light notes of flowery hop. Strange beer really.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle by NOV 2013. Nose is quite hoppy, dry and brittle Amarillo, for sure, light malt. Body a pale clear golden with a soapy white head. Bready-malty taste, relatively dry and breadening out toward the end, a watery-thin body that is hop-dominant but non-aggressive. Some herbal-grain notes with light bitterness in the aftertaste. Pleasant and lightweight.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber/honey colour, white head. Floral aroma with a touch of hops. Taste is verging on bland (perhaps straightforward is a better word) with citrus and is fairly refreshing if not especially interesting.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a clear dark honey-hued body with a small white head. Aroma is mild floral tones with some vague, undefined fruity tones in the back. Weak. Taste is no better: pale malts, cardboard and dusty hops. Bitter finish that seems to come from nowhere. Badly balanced, boring and forgettable.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Gift from the Scotsman. Very thin yellow pour with corn aroma and taste. Not much of anything going on in this one. A hint of fruit.
