SebBrews (129) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - MAR 29, 2017
Cloudy copper pour with medium thick, off-white, frothy head. Moderately poignant aromas of pine, papaya, mango, resin, cheese. Taste is medium bitter hops and follows partly the nose - tropical fruits, cheese, resin. Some malty notes as well. Creamy texture, medium carbonation. Medium bitter, short finish. Good, but not outstanding.

Arve_Christian (5040) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2017
On can from Vinmonopolet in Norway, on order. Hazy golden color, ok foam. Medium aroma intensity; citrusy , hops, fruity, caramel, toffee and some vanilla in the finish. Medium/ full body & medium complexity. Some light immediate sweetness, high bitterness balances it ok- actually a little too bitter for my taste. Enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy dark yellow body, huge white head. Intense aroma of honey and mango. Decent, piney-bitter taste with a nice fruitiness later on and a dry finish. Some taste of mint. Medium body, creamy texture. Really nice stuff.
