Rune (11055) - Tromsø, - SEP 12, 2012
500ml bottle bought a while ago at Centra Colosseum in Oslo. Shared with Finn. Clear, pale golden body under a frothy white head blanketing the glass. Restrained smell of mild fruits and grainy malts. Sweet orange fruity taste with earthy malts build into it. Smooth bittersweet ending, half-dry. Oily palate. A little frail-bodied but quite alright (rating session in Tromsø, 11.09.2012).

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2016 Clear golden with almost no head. A bit of citrus, dry hay. Has some mild flavours which ressemble an Ale, maybe not quite an IPA. No real bitterness, but easy to drink and a good beer to start with.

Seffle (455) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle from Morrison's, Fort William 160620. Clear golden amber body with lacing white head. Nice citrus and resin note. Good bitterness. A rather nice IPA-variant considering the low ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Ecco Vino Edinburgh, june 16th 2015. Golden body, small white head. Aroma of spicy hops, light fruit character. Taste is crisp malty with mild mango tones, grassy towards finish. Good bitterness. Dry clean fruit aftertaste.

BeerNinjaUK (239) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2016
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Described as a "lager/IPA hybrid" on the bottle. To my mind, much more a lager than an IPA, although not necessarily to its detriment. Pours pale straw with white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of grass, lemony notes and sherbet. Taste is light and sweet.

A lager/ipa "hybrid"?. It manages to miss the point completely. Ends up being a confused and well, flavourless.

sarauckelman (383) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2016
Clear light amber yellow with minimal head. Hoppy aroma (Cascade?) with citrus/floral notes. Hoppy bitter flavor but with sweeter undertones. Medium bodied. Good but not outstanding.

ciocanelu (1137) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 12, 2016
Crystal clear straw color with white head. Aroma is slightly grassy and hoppy. Taste is light and refreshing with some grassy hops and a bit of crakery malts. Body is light and well carbonated. Really easy drinking and refreshing.

Butelka 500 ml. Zlota barwa . Piana biala dosc obfita. Aromat sosnowych szyszek cytrusow trawy miodu. W smaku podobnie. Ciekawe zbalansowane piwo o orzezwiajacym cytrusowym finiszu. Dobre
