The scent is fresh hop aroma, slightly spicy and floral and with a touch of salty sea air. Flavor is hops aromatic and floral with a bit grainy malt flavor. The aftertaste is slightly watery and have a bitterness that is not nice, but still the beer have an okey taste and it’s easy to drink!

SirLimpsalot (2066) - SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2010
En ganska ljus och lätt öl (4 %) som kanske kan bli en trevlig lunch-öl tillsammans med en pastasallad eller liknande. Smaken bestod av typiska sommartoner med mycket gräs och hö. Lite svag humle, men fin och frisk.

jesperhammer (2835) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2010
07.AUG-2010, bottle @home, from Systembolaget. Dark golden white head. Funny cross between a pale ale and a wheat beer, but it works. Malty for a pale ale with some yeasty notes, and malty fruitiness, and a fine little bitterness in the end. Fine brew.

500 ml bottle from Systembolaget in Örnsköldsvik. BB DEC 2010. Rated on July 30, 2010
Clear golden color, white head. Fruity hoppy scent, also sweet with caramel. Hoppy, bitter, dry taste. First sweet, then dry bitter aftertaste. Medium but moussy mouthfeel. Medium high bitterness. Hints of butterscotch.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - AUG 1, 2010
Golden color with a big, fluffy whit head which leaves quite a lot of lacing on the glass. Aroma is hoppy, but in a British way: flowers, perfume and some notes of apricot (maybe esters from the fermentation). There’s grassy notes, hay, cookies and tiny bit of caramel. Flavour is fruity, with clear notes of apricot marmelade or so, but there’s also flowers, perfume and cookie malt. Finishes bitter and somewhat dry and refreshing. Average carbonation. Medium bodied.

hirigalzkar (2238) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2010
Bottle. Pours golden, semi hazy with a small white head. Needle hop notes in the aroma. This thirst quencher is very well balanced with some sweet malt and crispy hoppiness. PERFECT for a hot day.
