0,5 l flaske ombord i Fridtjofen: syrlig og frisk aroma. Fint men kortvarig skum. God munnfylde. Frisk smak av citrus og bringebr. Behagelig ettersmak, kanskje en smule oljeaktig

Nice citrus flavour with a malty depth. Not too bitter nor is there a heavy alcoholic kick.

McWorta (1594) - LUXEMBOURG - OCT 12, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2014 Lovely light golden colour. Nice lasting soft pillowy white head. Noses of hops and fresh cut grass with a hint of coriander-citrus. Texture is light oily bit soapy reminding again faintly of coriander. Medium body, lightly sweet with hints of floral bitterness a truly lovely balanced beer! Finish is long but pleasantly un-noticable, still lingering.

WeissGary (286) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 29, 2012
Very light and really pale gold body with a fair white head. Aroma is fruity verging on a grassy finish. Quite a a malty taste with a fruity berry like finish which feels quite hoppy. Quite a decent beer!

MichaelAwesome (6497) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2012
0,5 l bottle. Definitely fruity, surprisingly and extremely refreshing. A bit bitter at the end, but an easy to drink beer at all.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - JUL 16, 2012
Pale golden colour, some white head, fruity and malty and a bit of zest. Malt is there but not over powering. Its quite crisp (definitely in refreshing territory) and it has a component of apple and some yeasty spice. Its actually a very good beer although it isnt a pale ale (as listed). Its too light and too crisp and fruity.

Cant say much about the appearance as I drank it from the bottle once I had climbed to the top of Arthurs Seat in Edinburgh. Refreshing, light, with a bit of apple at the end of the taste. Very decent.
