3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden, small average pale head. Nice flowery hops on the nose, earthy grass, honey and grainy malts. Biscuit malty, flowery flavor, with mint and good herbal bitterness. Some citric fruits also. Light to medium bodied, average carbonation. Nice character and balance, pretty great for a Golden ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clean gold colour, fine bead resulting in a good white head, lasts well down the glass. Fine aroma of fresh citrus fruit and vanilla. A well balanced palate has sweetish malt and nice acidity from the hops. The finish lasts well....nice beer!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ Medelhavspärlan, Stockholm 7 July 2005
Blonde beer with absolutely no head to speak of. Rather thin body and obviously brewed to attract lager drinkers. A bit of tropical fruits can be detected, otherwise quite uninteresting.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Golden yellowish orange, thin white head. Malty aroma with notes of citrus and grassy hops. The flavour is malty, with some citrus fruits and a nice hoppy finish. Medium-bodied and very soft mouthfeel. OK, but not particularly interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose of cream, hops and spices. Pours a clear golden beer with noticeable lacing and a full white head. Taste is spicy, hoppy and fruity and finishes with an enduring bitter tatse. Really nice.
