tfredvik (1128) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2013
Clear, golden body with a short-lived, smaller than average white head that leaves some lacing. Moderate aroma that is quite sweet with fruity notes and some sweet honey. Moderate sweet taste with a light bitter, light dry and quite short finish. Some fruits and berries in the flavours, sweet honey in the back and some faint traces of sweet and overripe banana. Light bodied, a bit watery texture but still rather smooth, soft carbonation. Too boring and too sweet for such modest flavours and weak bitterness. Not actually bad, though.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 months before BB date, from Meny Oslo City, Oslo]

gbe75 (96) - ICELAND - MAR 4, 2013
Light and refreshing ale from Heather Ales. Not so exciting though. Grassy hops and malts. Citrus in the taste. Very pale and yellow in color. Nice white head/foam when poured into a glass.

mighty_meadow (203) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2013
500ml bottle from Peckhams Glasgow. Pours lovely honey colour with nice white head. Not a great deal in way of aroma. Taste is quite straight forward, sweet and hoppy with a subtle marmalade(y) tang. Nice lacing all the way down along with thin head. Gentle fizz from start to finish. Another one to remember for the summer ahead.
