EHSRanders (2104) - Tjele, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle. Clear yellow color with huge creamy white mostly lasting head. Hoppy and spicy aroma and flavor. Waterry palate.

50cl bottle from the local supermarket (ICA). Brewed 2013-10-07, Best before 2014-10-07. Batch 663. It poured a slightly hazy, but mostly transparent yellow golden colour with a massive white foamy head. Hell, the foamy came out of the bottle as soon as the cork was popped and the foamy just kept on building in the glass. Aroma is fresh and crisp. Notes of grass, citrus, hops and some bread. Flavour is crisp as well. Notes of citrus, grass, some hops, spices and bread. Short aftertaste. Overall a very nice session ale.

Gyllen av farge med et enormt skum som holdt bra. Aroma av malt frukt og en del sitrus. Smaken følger aroma m,ed innslag av karamell. Ekstremt høyt karbonert

Snegurochka (397) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2014
500ml bottle from Eurospar Tomasjord. Under the baking sun 08.07.14. Gushing, with huge head and fair lacing. Unclear golden yellow body. Flowers, clove, grain and slight taste of citrus. Thin and a bit boring, no real sting- but a real thirst quencher this exceptionally warm afternoon on the porch. Not bad at all!

tfredvik (2095) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2014
An over-carbonated angry little bugger: it produces a humongous off-white head far too easily and it therefore takes quite some time to pour a glass. Fluffy patches of foam cling to the glass. The beer has a pale golden hazy colour. The aroma is rather faint, crisp and dry with only hints of citrus and yeast. Not bad, but pretty boring. The flavour has a bit more punch, again lemony citrus, yeast, pale malts and pine in the pretty long finish. The taste is light sweet and moderate bitter. Light-bodied, but not as light as I had feared given the low ABV. Quite fizzy carbonation and dry texture. Not far from a decent beer. Maybe a fresher bottle will be less over carbonated, less yeasty and will have stronger aroma and flavour.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 9 months after bottling, from Meny Oslo City, Oslo]

MartinT (10239) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Leafy, grassy hops ride this brew’s bubbly mouthfeel while straw-like malts balance out the green bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty straw yellow.
-Carbonation is intense, which works well with the dryness.
-Drinkability is quite high.
-This is not that memorable, but I would grab it often if I saw it on tap when in Norway.


ABS (1139) - Stokke, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle from Meny Grim. Pours, well, head only. Incredible amount of white, frothy head. Eventually, it settles hazy golden. Took over 15 minutes to pour. Yeast, pepper, some citrus nose. Sour and bitter. Light mouth feel. Tingly carbonation. Citrus, malt, some yeast, some metal and seltzers flavour. Too thin. There are better session IPAs out there (Imagine saying that in Norway just a few years ago:) )

Finn (8538) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 27, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Eurospar Tomasjord. Veldig lys gylden. Litt uklar. Høyt luftig skum som varer lenge. Litt lacing. Veldig god fruktaroma. Svisker & rosiner. Smaken er grapefrukt med hint av annen frukt før den avslutter lett syrlig. Ualminnelig mye smak i forhold til alkoholstyrken! Virker som en hyllest til engelske bryggetradisjoner.

totoro76 (180) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 19, 2014
50 cl bottle buyed @ Cervezorama, Madrid/Spain. Very good hopped low alcohol beer. Nicely brewed, it´s a very good choice in a hot day, Pairs well with asian food.
