TET (2793) - 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 (8173) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2013
50 cl bottle @ Nurmo, BBE 28.05.2014
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.

ClubGonzo (5568) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle from Lery 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.

lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2013
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.

Graham77 (466) - SCOTLAND - JUN 16, 2013
Aroma of elderflower with a biscuity background. This is a pale golden colour beer with a good head which fades quickly. The taste is zesty with again a biscuity malt background. A well balanced beer and really quite refreshing.

Foffern (1722) - Bod, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle shared with ClubGonzo. Has a golden straw colour with a small off-white head. Have a nice and sweet aroma of elderflower, citrus and some spices and bubble gum. The taste is a bit faint but I still find a little spice and something that is reminiscent of dandelion. Is a little strange in the end. Mouth feel is light and smooth, and has a lasting medium bitterness. The aroma is good, but the taste feels a little unbalanced.

Imaena (2280) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - MAY 13, 2013

larsga (7381) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2013
Medium offwhite head. Clear golden body with carbonation. Floral earthy aroma with elderberry notes. Dry citric floral taste with strawy herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, fizzy mouthfeel. Dry herbal wheaty aftertaste with dusty mealy elderberry notes. Nice, if perhaps a little bit too bitter. The elderberry is fairly subtle, dont think Id have picked it up, if it didnt say on the bottle. (0.5l bottle, Meny Strmmen Storsenter.)
