So much better than the standard joker, full of pine hops and citrus flavour. Very tasty.

gildnerk (132) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2014
On the tail end of a cold, so my impression might not be as accurate as possible. Bottle. Pours medium-dark amber with virtually no head. Aromas are interesting; good mixture of sweet-sour (banana, resin) and bitter (spruce) scents. On the nose rather bitter, with some malty sweetness peeking through towards the middle before a long, rather hoppy-bitter finish. Rather strong alcoholic note during a long bitter aftertaste. The palate is lively, decent carbonation, but somewhat too astringent for me in sum.

danlo (1164) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
330ml bottle from BeerRitz. Clear orange gold amber colour, frothy white foam head leaving some lacing and aroma of apricot, mango, citrus hoppy. Taste is a tangy grapefruit citrus hop, sweetish with malt caramel and woody pine earthy bitterness. Oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, drying peppery bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

jookos (2149) - FINLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Tap@black door. Golden, quite clear. Caramelly honey malty, some strange greenery. Fullish body, sweet caramel malty. Yikes, after that light and refreshing session ipa, this feels really heavy, sweet cloying. Even boozy. Flavourful, but just too heavy right now

Svag lite pilneraktig doft. Smaken söt lite åt kola smak. Enkel lite syntetisk smak med en lite småtråkig beska. Tveksam!

Lightly hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is little soft with fine carbonation. Light malts, Piney hops that start a little sweet and then turn fairly bitter. Touch of mint. Light semi dry finish. Pretty drinkable.

Cool_Bond (1400) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2014
Floral, sweet and slightly fruity flavor and aroma. Good bitterness that sits down in the upper part of the mouth of a weak moment. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
