Flaske: Clear, golden with an orangey sheen, small and stable white head, solid dry piney and fruity hop-aromas in the nose; very robust and dry bitter-sweet flavour, almost medium bodied and pretty soft; hops sticking to the palate in the dryish fruity-hoppy finish, all balanced by pale malt. Great beer... Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2012
0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a crystal clear golden one with a small bubbly and sidesticking off-white head. Smells hoppy and a bit fruity, almost pungent hoppy, but not in a directly bad way either. Tomatoes and nettles. Interesting. Quite hoppy, yet extremely balanced! Did not expect this. Comfortably carbonated with a soft slick mouthfeel. Fruity melon and some nice citrus. Soft dry and slick finish. Not bad at all. 22.08.2012 Ratman197 (14826) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2012

330ml bottle from Systembolaget Luleå, thanks to Gaute. A very slight haze to a golden body. Pillow-like, white head leaving lace pattern behind. Fresh smell of floral hops. Bittersweet taste of ripe, citrus fruits. Smooth bittersweet ending, semi-dry. Well balanced. Promotes a relaxing summer feel (shared with Finn, Tromsø 11.09.2012).

Aroma is a bit light and somewhat sweet with some exotic fruits and peaches. Flavour is somewhat hoppy with gooseberry bush, some nettles and a vichy‐like feeling. Decent.
