4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a London Oddbins.
Golden beer, fluffy head.
Very aromatic, full flavour. Belgian yeast profile, fruity, a little sourness. Bread crust, dusty finish. A new favourite - way above the standard dull British Golden ale.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden colour, huge foamy white head. Aroma is a bit skunky. Grassy hops. Flavour is malty and fruity (indeed, grapefruit). Slighly bitter. Disappointing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Straw gold with lots of orangy fruity esters in the aroma and body. Nice soft mouth feel with some sherbert. Quite a earthy hop on the finish. I liked it.

500ml Bottle - Dark golden/amber in colour with a white ehad. Grassy aroma with some citrus and hoppy notes. Hoppy and fresh taste with grapefruit and a pleasant but not overwhelming bitterness. Bags of flavour for the strength.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Århus2008. 50 cL bottle. Pours clear golden yellow with a lacing white head. Light fruity hops aroma. Light fruity hops flavour with a mild sweetness. Light bitter and dry finish. I find this between the red and joker in flavour-scale. Another nice hoppy brew.

Pours deep golden with a pretty big, frothy, white head. Aroma is sweet malty with a light citric hoppiness. Low carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is softly hopped with good chewy maltiness. Fine pine, grassy and citric hoppiness. Very drinkable.
