Crystal clear amber colour with diminishing bubbly head. Swimmingpool(chlorine) nose, deriving from the yeast. Hard to detect anything else, but there are flowery hops. Light, soft mouthfeel, with good maltiness and grassy, grapey hops with an earthy feel all along. Hops grows on you long after, with a lingering, medium bitterness.

courtesy of Per - hazy dark blond colour with a persistent foam; aroma of tangerines with notes of dust, some sweetness, fairly carbonated with some tart sourness, moderate malt body; gently sourish and fruity finish - not really tasty deflagro (106) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2009
Bottle. Quite dark for a pale ale. Overall a very well balanced beer that does not drift away in any direction. Some sweetness, lots of malt and a small bitterness. Nice. Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2009
Pours amber and hazy. Wow, what with all the yeast, nice but surprising. Quite a lot of fruity and flowery american hops. The bitterness is all there as well and gives a good balance to the citric hops and yeast. Overall a nice beer I’ll definitely have again. wkalle (263) - SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2009
Pours crystal clear copper coloured with a medium sized and long lasting head that laces the glass nicely. Spicy hops with an almost belgian yeastiness in aroma. Also some weird sour off-aroma but not unpleasant, just weird. Burnt bitterness in flavor with lots off hoppy bitterness in finish. Weird hoppy ale, but still quite nice.
Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2009
0.5 l bottle from Systembolaget. Slightly hazy amber color. Fruity and resiny hops in the aroma with yeast and soap. Berryish and bitter flavor with fruity hops and yeast. Unpleasantly yeasty and soapy. larsga (7508) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2009
Big offwhite lasting head. Faintly hazy dark amber body. Milky tropical fruit aroma, very harmonic. Dry (and faintly acidic) fruity wooden and slightly watery taste, somewhat dusty. Taste is a bit one-dimensional. Dry resiny oily fruity aftertaste with roasty wooden notes. Quite nice. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.) NosirIwont (2515) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear, deep golden with a big, frothy off-white head. Sweetish pine hop aroma with notes of yeast. Flavour is sweetish with yeast and hops. Bitter hop finish with a slight tartness and lingering notes of yeast. An okay beer with a nice hop profile, but could do without the yeast notes. 24-10-09.

500ml bottle at home, courtesy of CinnamonGirl. Lots of dimples to a frothy, white head. Clear amber body with a reddish shade. Malt-fruity aroma supported by floral hops. Good dose of leafy hops and gentle malty sweetness in flavour. Lingering, dry bitter endnotes. Medium bodied. Tasty, fresh and pleasing (Tromsø, 23.09.2009). Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours amber coloured with a nice creamy lasting and lacing off white head. Floral aroma with notes of caramel, pine and herbs. Flavours of caramel, citrus fruit, grassy hops and mild resin. Great bitter finish. Nice.
