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.

oh6gdx (20247) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2009
Bottled (from K Citymarket, Rauma). Golden colour with mediumsized fluffy head, that settles into a small foamy thing. slight lace. Aroma is strongly zesty, fruity and flowery hoppy as well as mildly yeasty. Flavour is quite much the same in a quite bitter way. Bitter and quite dry biting finish.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Complex golden ale that delivers on its promise of vanilla and orange. Finishes with a long and blooming bitterness that is a bit jarring.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 8, 2006
3,9% ABV
Hazy blond color; low carbonation and thin head. Fresh aroma, with light aroma of malt and hop, surprising. Light body, with some malt flavor, some sweetness, light fudge, herbal tea touch; quite strong bitterness, a bit metallic at the end. A bottle with cask conditioned quality, a good surprise.
