0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Yellow with OK head. Nice citrus flavour combined with the hops. Very refreshing. tfredvik (1941) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2013
Clear, pale yellow body with a white, somewhat creamy head that reduces to a very thin but long lasting layer quite quickly. A nice curtain of foam is sticking to the glass when empty. Rather strong and very sweet aroma that is dominated by sweet fruits. The flavours are a bit more interesting and complex, and I get citric and floral notes in addition to the sweet fruits. The taste is light sweet, there are hints of acidity and the moderate bitter finish has a sharp feel, almost like dandelion sap. That latter might be the elderflower, but I’m more familiar with dandelion (this probably says more about my gardening skills than my sense of taste). The body is quite light and dry and has a moderate to soft carbonation. Fair enough. chrisv10 (17435) - DENMARK - JUL 21, 2013

TET (3033) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 7, 2013
A light yellow beer with an only weak and white head. The nose is biscuity, some malts, lemon and grass, some fruits. Taste is quite dry, biscuity, medium bitterness that is citrusfruity, the end is slightly musty. Light+ bodied, fresh and easy to drink. Quite typical Golden Ale, biscuits and citrus fruits. laiti (8469) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2013
50 cl bottle @ Nurmo, BBE 28.05.2014ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2013
Aroma is sweetish with honey, hay, some grapefruit and grainy notes. Flavour is hoppy with grapefruit, some sweetish grainy notes and hints of hay. Finishes a bit unpleasant feeling of warm pale lager. Nice golden anyway.
Bottle from Lerøy Mat Galleriet, Bergen, shared with Foffern. Pours a golden orange body with a small white head. Nose is fresh elderflowers, pale malts and hints of grass. Taste is grass, pale malts and strong herbal astringent notes. Not very balanced, and the flowers are nowhere to be found. Medium to thin body, medium carbonation. Pretty "meh", all in all. olio (10274) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2013
50 cl bottle. BBE 28.05.2014.lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2013
Pours clear golden colour with small, large bubbly head. Grassy and somewhat herbal notes on the nose, fruits and pale malts also. Flavor of fruits, butter, dry pale malts and hay. Quite slick palate with a very dry finish.
500 ml bottle.
Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of honey, dandelion, maneuver and grass. Flavour of grassy hops, weird buttery notes, grass, pepper, strong dry hay, smoked wood(!) and sweetish malts. Light bodied, medium carbonation and a lingering, oily, honey-like and bitter finish. A bit weird.
