On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazy pale golden with a thin white film on top. Aroma of Mr. Nelson, passion fruit and tropical fruit juice, lovely, quite close to the catpiss borderline. Taste is fresh, solid, crisp, hoppy smack in my face, good carbonation elevate the hops to the frontrow of the show, more herbal and peppery hops towards the end, spearmint. Dry and clean mouthfeel. Me like, a lot!

abemorsten (3591) - Mostery, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2012
On tap at Cardinal. Pours a mist, pale golden body with a white, creamy, small head. Heavy sweaty, cat piss, herbal nose. Bitter, light salty, herbal and a hint of chlorine in the mouth. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Smooth to drink. Ends bitter with the tongue dry and more herbs.

Alexus (242) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2012
On tap @ Cardinal, Stavanger. Hazy pale golden color with creamy head. Fresh aromas from the hops, citrus and tropical fruits. Great smooth body! The oats gives a really pleasant rich body, but not too much. Its no doubt that the hops are the focus, and the nelson and citra goes really well together. To bad its a limited brew.

Sampled @ Lervig. Golden color and a creamy head. Distinct notes of tropical fruits derived from Nelson Sauvin, really showcasing the hop . A velvety smooth body despite not having any crystal malts in it. This ale is all about the hops and the oats! Each sip invites another. Could drink this all night.

On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar. Golden colour, creamy white head. Distinct hoppy aroma, notes of pine neeedles, tropical fruits, citrus and crushed gooseberries, a hint of tomcat. Fairly light bodied for its strength. The flavour is full of luscious hops throughout, notes of pine needles and grapefruit. The bitterness is solid, but the oats still lend a touch of smoothness to the beer. Definitely moreish! *Correction to description: Might also be made available at Henrik l & Vinstove in Bergen.
