Draft at edmunds oast. Aroma is somewhat subdued, but the flavor more than makes up for that. Very delicate floral notes with a distinct fresh pine finish. Exceptional.

Small slightly fizzy-creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry citrusy, soda powder, lime, hay, fruit salt, flowers, pine needles. Taste is slightly dry sour-ish mineraly, soda powder, fruit salt, grass, lime, hay, minerals, hints of pine needles. Medium bitterness, slightly dry sour-ish mouthfeel. Nice enough.
On tap @ Apollon. This is a blurry golden colored one with a medium sized off-white not lacing head on the top. It smells nice. Kinda fresh, a little lemonic sour. There’s also a little wild sweetness here’s. Hard to break this one down. Strawberries and a little juniper perhaps? Smells good anyway. It has a thin oily texture in the mouth and it’s just below average on the carbonation. Prickling. Tastes mild and not very interesting really. A little flat and dry. Hints of citrus oils, juniper berries and branches. Old musky apple peel. Not bad at all, just it tastes a little old perhaps. Ends slightly sweetish. Decent. 30.06.2017 Holmen2 (3850) - NORWAY - JUN 15, 2017

On tap at Max’s. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Smells of pine and rosemary. Reminds me of hand soap, but in fragrance only, not a negative. Medium bodied, lemon and pine and rosemary. Vibrant and unexpected, very light salinity with a hint of lemon. Slow musk and yeast into the finish with faint pine lingering. Liked this a lot, very much exceeding expectations.
