COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
A bright, golden summer ale brewed with a blend of Belgian pale malt, Cascade and Bobek hops with a late infusion of fresh elderflowers and lemon zest. Fruity, aromatic and deliciously refreshing.

Golden syrup colour. Quite hazy.Pours a nice head but doesn’t last too long. Doesn’t feel too highly carbonated but keeps a lacing throughout. Smells of outdoors, floral, nettles perhaps. Thought it started off slightly tart but after a few mouthfuls the sweetness comes through. Finishes off on a citrus note but subtle rather than draw your cheeks together. Quite watery for Williams Bros and doesn’t really feel 5%. Good but not the best from this particular brewer. [Actually, the further down the glass I get, the more I’m liking this]

TET (1434) - FINLAND - AUG 31, 2012
A light yellow beer with a almost medium and white head. Aroma is nice and fresh, aromatic, and I want to taste, biscuity malts, lemon, some tropical fruits and papaiyas. Taste is light malty, fruits, aromatic, some sweetness, only slightly drying aftertaste. Light+, fresh and light to drink. Nice, fresh and aromatic beer, for an easy enjoy, the good beer.

500ml bottle bought at Centra Colosseum in Oslo and shared with Finn back home. Clear, straw-golden body. Airy white head with some retention. Nice smell of floral hops. Herbal hops and earthy malts in flavour supported by honey sweetness. Subdued bittersweet ending. Fine drinkability, rather thin mouthfeel, though (Tromsø, 18.07.2012).

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2012
0.5l shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a dull pale golden blurry beer with a small bubbly off-white head. The aroma is light cereal-sweet with a hint of wet cardboard and perhaps even some yeast. Not utterly exciting. It has a average carbonation level and a thin and almost watery mouthfeel. In flavor it’s also kinda cereal-sweet - much the same as the aroma. Light floral also - it can actually remind a bit of flower water? Ends quite quickly and I’m totally convinced that I won’t remember this for to long. Perhaps the bottle is old or something? 16.06.2012

Flaske 0,5l påspandert av og delt med Rune under middag i WC74 18 Jul 12. Lysebrun/gul. Litt uklar. OK kremaktig skum. God fruktig aroma. Smaken er søt frukt. Aprikos & jordbær. Syrlig fruktig ettersmak. Lett-drikkelig.
