Bottled. It’s pale yellow with minor white head. The aroma mainly consists of hops. The flavour is sweetish with hops and has a watery after taste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nice barley malt aroma (smelled a little skunky in the bottle but that seemed to all but disappear after pouring into a glass). Orangish-amber color with nice head. Sour barley malt flavor with mild but long lingering hops finish. Moderate carbonation especially for the style. Not an ale for those who like draughts but overall a nice tasty beer.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is not particularly distinctive, or pleasing for that matter. Hazy aspect to the colour. As with the aroma, did not find the taste very distinctive either and found it a bit thin. Not bad, but would not recommend.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange-yellow, small head, no lace. Malty aroma, a little yeast, and a little orange peel. Palate has a strange shortbread flavour, sweet malt, fruity hops, and a moderately bitter finish. Thin bodied overall, but I thought it was okay.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours straw-yellow with little to no head. Neither hoppy nor malty in aroma or flavor. Thin, grassy, slightly cardboardy and uninspired. Dry, clean finish. Pleasant but forgettable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy golden with a quickly disappearing head. Nice hoppy aroma, but also some malty sweetness.Citrus. The initial taste is sweet, but there is some bitterness as well. Caramel and citrus. Short aftertaste and light body. Medium carbonated. Nice session beer, but not a lot of character.

Golden. A white head not lasting long at all. Aroma from grass and citrus. Flavor is little malty and sweet. Fruity but comes of bitter in the end.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pale amber, vaguely hazy from the yeasty sediment. A very lively head, but unfortunately it collapses rather fast. Lovely floral, hoppy aroma. Weakly caramelish and sweetish. The aroma hops don’t leave much bitterness. A nice - and organic - experience. 290703
