ganache (5910) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Bottle by SEP 12. Sweet tropical/PNW hops in the nose, quite strong, with a light doughy base. Pale clear orange body with a white head. Light body bitter with a trace of alcohol heft, there’s some dry caramel and light hop oils though it seems the hoppiness was limited mostly to the aromatics, and there’s no malt complexity to compensate. Nice chugger. BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 21, 2012
33cl, new Swedish brew Anno 2012, from Bierzwerg Greven, complex brew, malty/sweet and slightly bitter/fruity, balanced, clear, good head, nice Summer brew ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget in Torp, Uddevalla. Clear golden body, small white head. Nose is parsley, grapefruit, melon and hints of caramel. Nice, but a bit lacking in assertiveness, even for a lightweight like this. Taste is fresh grass, bitter pine, hints of hay and burnt sugar in the back. Smooth carbonation, and all in all a pretty decent summer beer. Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 18, 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 _angst_ (4802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2012

Bottle in Sälen.
Clear yellow with a white head. Aroma heavy hoppy (pine, straw), mediuum malty (caramel). Flavor medium sweet, almost heavy bitter, light spicy. Medium body. daje (4436) - NORWAY - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma of tropical fruits and biscuit, the fruitiness is very nice here. Taste is also hop forward with a peach/pineapple drive and a light caramel base. Refreshing bitterness leaning on the grassy side, and an aftertaste of tropical fruit, berries and grass. A good summer ale I imagine.
