COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Cold filtered - available April to October. Has been seen in cask as a July seasonal.

Wold grown malts with the triple hop mix of Styrian, Goldings and Cascade create an amber beer that is both fruity and light but still has a subtle dry finish.
A beer for relaxing, sunshine and those long days of Summer.

BlackHaddock (4137) - Shropshire, - APR 10, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Sep 2012 and poured into an ’Abbot Ale’ glass tankard in Oct 2011. Looked fine, a good light/golden amber body with a thinish white crown of foaming bubbles on top. The small was of floral hops and mixed fruits (apples and pears?). The taste was mostly hops with a dryness from the first sip which lasted until the mouth was completely empty. Claims to be a summer drink, which I suppose it is, being light in colour and refreshing. Not a lot of flavours within it, a bit one dimensional with the hops dominating everything else that might have been in the brew. OK, but not something I’d buy a crate of.

Medium offwhite head. Clear paleish yellow body. Fruity floral strawy aroma with herbal notes. Sweet fruity floral grape taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry-sweet fruity papery floral aftertaste with grassy gingery notes. Nice, drinkable, refreshing. Very nice beer. (0.5l bottle, from Meny Strømmen Storsenter.)

Rune (8486) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2014
500ml bottle bought at Kjeller 5, Tromsø. Fair white lacing-head to an almost clear golden body. Moderate aroma of fresh orange with earthy malts beneath. Peach and lemon to the taste profile joined by herbal hops. Mild drying hoppy finish. Medium to thin bodied. Crispy in the mouth. Satisfying (shared with Finn H. at his place, Tromsø 27.03.2014).

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle from Meny Oslo City. A fully diminshing foamy white top, over a clear pale honey golden body. Sappy candy fruity nose with hint of flowers, perfume and grainy malts. Properly light-bodied. Initial taste is sweet and grainy, followed by a note of candied fruits and mild grassy hops. Short floral-fruity ending. A decent Golden Ale, appears a bit artificial.
