3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium white head. Deep golden body with carbonation. Strawy
citric floral aroma with perfumy earthy notes. Dry-sweet floral
lemon zest taste with strawy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft
mouthfeel. Dryish floral lemon zest aftertaste with earthy
dandelion notes. Nice, drinkable, maybe a slight bit
perfumy. (0.5l bottle, Meny StrÝmmen Storsenter.)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared with ClubGonzo and Veitafan. Has a golden yellow colour with a small off-white head. Have a fruity aroma that is a little cautious, but I find citrus, hay and some light malt. The taste is also somewhat weak where I sence some light malt, hops and corn. Mouth feel is aqueous and smooth, with a slight bitterness. Unfortunately, this was not as good as a golden ale can be and is boring and plain with a light aroma and taste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Meny Manglerud enjoyed at home
Golden, white head. Smells of biscuit, malts, grain and faint hops. Light sweet, spicy, quite dry, clean. Medium bitter, green leaves and grass. The mouthfeel in this one is bone dry - and sadly this kind of beer should be not in my book. Donít take this one out in the nice summer weather - you will beg for some water on the side

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.5l bottle. This is a clear pale golden one with a big-bubbled small just off-white top. Smells quite sweet and almost fruity this. A good amount of sweet grains, some traces of melon zest and not much more really. Not directly mellow, but not extreme. Itís average on the carbonation with big-bubbled bubbles - like the one you find in mineral water, and a soft light watery mouthfeel. Soft metallic-bitter with a decent amount of sweet mild fruitiness. Some pine cones and citrus near the finish. A good example of itís genre. To bad the genre is extremely dull and generic. 15.02.2013

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from LerÝy Mat, Bergen, shared with Foffern and Veitafan. Pours a deep orange-golden body with a small white head. Nose is pale malts, floral tones with subtle fruits and hints of ginger peel. Taste is pale malts, floral and grassy hops with hints of almonds. Soft carbonation, medium to thin mouthfeel. Not very impressive, even for the relatively low-key genre.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle from Meny Ringnes park. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of malt, fruits with some hoppy notes and hints of caramel and citrus. Medium sweet and malty with a slightly citrusy and bitter finish. Refreshing and sessionable ale, but nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from...youíve guessed it. Clean gold without inclusions; narrow fine foam. Enticing, perfumed aroma of lemon jellies, The Wifeís anti-panic herbal pastilles; Turkish Delight spread on a digestive biscuit. Flavour builds on that promise with more of the same; lush digestive malt topped with floral-infused, gelatinous confectionery. Digging Wold Topís whole presentation with these bottles. Fine brew- pity Iím committed to relinquishing my other bottle to Keith. A reward indeed.
