konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2010
Golden beer with a bigh white head leaving lacings as it slowly fades. Aroma has light fresh notes of citrus, lemongrass, hay and flowers. The body is light but crisp and refreshing. Cookies and bread. Almost too drinkable.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2010
Bottled. Golden colour, white head. Herbal hop nose along with lemon grass. Lemon grass is also outspoken and dominates the flavour, which is pretty light. Bit of toffee. Grass and herbal nuances in the finish, which add a solid marked bitterness. Nice beer but not complex.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2010
Bottle. Golden with small white head. Malt, citrus and maybe some elderberries. Honestly, if I didn’t know it was elderberries I hadn’t noticed it. Dry after taste. Thin body, maybe too much filtered.

LoFi (1700) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2011 Bottle. Golden, with an off-white head, leaving some lacing. Aroma: nuts, hops, some malt, elderberries. Taste: citrus, fruity, grassy hops, biscuity malt, some pepper, and the elderberries. Low to medium bitterness. Low to medium-bodied wth a noticeable carbonation. Refreshing.

MarcLager (19) - SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2010
Bottle from Systembolaget. I had a slight cold when I tried this, so my aim might be off. A nice, but a bit anonymous ale. I expected a more complex taste from seven varieties of malted barley. A summer ale to be had while watching the sun go down.

Bottle. Sweet lemon peel and malt aroma. Golden yellow color with large head. Bittersweet lemon peel and light barley malt flavor. Medium body. Nice but nothing outstanding.
