gyllenbock (7229) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2010
Bottle. Slightly hazy with a small white head. Fresh aroma of citrus, hay, elderberry. Mild and easy to drink, a typical thirst quencher. I began to think of summer when I drank the beer.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours out in a hazy golden appearance with a small frothy white foam. Rounded fruity aroma of Seville oranges, elder, flowers and mild lemon with hints of white grapefruit. Medium-bodied with notes o fstraw, elder, oranges, mild lemon and dough. Medium-bitter and well-rounded finish of flowers, mild lemon and dough.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2010
0.5L bottle from Systembolaget, Charlottenberg. Bubbley dirty-blond head, leaving spotty laces. Deep yellow to gold colored body. Modest, but fresh aroma of orange peel and lemon. A honey note and vague smell of biscuity malts. Much of the same flavorwise. Fresh citrussy hops, subtle but delicate toasted and biscuity maltiness. Lively in the mouth, crisp and clean. Light-bodied. Lemony hops linger in a short, dry finish. A hybrid, and a pretty quenching one.

Ingevara (895) - SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2010
Medium high, foamy head. Aly smell, promising. Hints of citrus, but not enough grapefruit. Some grassy notes; the hops are apparent and emphasized but it seems to me that the brewer has tried to make an ale for lager lovers and hasn’t really managed to corner any of the two markets. Drinkable, but forgettable.

olsvammel (5513) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2010
Draught at SBWF 2010 (Snickeriet - Ängö). It poured a clear pale yellow liquid with a small white head. Flavour of malt, bread, some fruits, ripe fruit, hint of yeast and flowery hops. Semi smooth mouthfeel with a medium thick body and medium carbonation. Nice and easy to drink english ale.

McWorta (1339) - LUXEMBOURG - OCT 10, 2010
Refreshing citrus hops, light CO2. Small white head, dark, damp golden colour. Light fizzy, sweet and bitter. Develops a taste of elderflower like elderflower juice. Lightly oily and crisp. Palatable.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Bottle. Aroma: Herbal and citrusy hops, a bit of sweet malt and wheat. Flavor: Herbs, lemon, wheat, grass, a bit spicy, notes of smoke/barnyard. A bit too sour, thin and sharp. Rather strong carbonation. Re-rated 110204.

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 (3851) - 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.
