Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 10A, slightly adapted). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L338 12. AROMA: hop aromas with citric notes mixed with caramelized malt and some esters (orange). it also has a port like quality. APPEARANCE: amber color and very hazy with material in suspension. medium ivory head with good retention. TASTE: flavours similar to the aromas but much more restrained. floral hop notes with a nice malty balance. low bitterness with a medium-sweet finish. PALATE: thin body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a different interpretation of an APA with more mild flavours and bitterness. haukur (1948) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - NOV 4, 2014
amber with a fluffy head. Aroma is grassy and somewhat earthy. Mouthfeel is dry, nice medium bitterness. Balanced. Very good. wvhoran (455) - Tasmania, - OCT 8, 2014
A gushing bottle, pours a fairly dark amber-orange, hazy, with a large off-white head. Aroma is sweet, toasted malts, noble hops and some grapefruit and peach. Flavour is sweet, spicy, toffee, hops. Grapefruit. A light body with lively carbonation. Interesting and different but not amazing. graziano85 (462) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle, exactly on the "best before" day.
Nice amber/orange color, hazy, with very big head. Smell is fruity, peach, apricot, something exotic, and also some caramel malt. Taste is instead very lemonish, citric, even tart.
The low carbonation doesn’t help, it reminds to me also the tea. I would like some more gas.
Not bad, ok beer, but not my favourite. TimE (5793) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 15, 2014
frothy white head. Amber color. Dry with lots of band aid note. Not exciting or interesting.

Bottle @ il molo, Ranco. Ambrato carico, quasi ramato, opalescente. Schiuma beige fine poco persistente. aroma intenso, fruttato, agrumato (scorza di pompelmo) e resinoso. sicuramente dry hopped. Note secodnarie di caramello, malto e frutta secca/tostata. Gusto secco, amaro, poi maltato che ricorda il caramello, lievissimo retrogusto tostato. Corpo medio, carbonatazione alta, spigolosa senza eccessi, poco calda, astringente. equilibrata ed armonica. luttonm (6172) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2014
.33l bottle at Belgrade tasting. Rich golden, hazed body with firm white head. Mild acidic hop, sweet ale. Good balance.
