UPDATED: DEC 3, 2013 Bottle from Borough Wines [Wilton Way]. Pours hazy yellow with a big, fluffy white head which sits around for the length of the beer. Damn fine looking stuff. Nose is subtle spice, lemon rind, dough, coriander, touch of pepper and orange. Complex and refreshing in both smell and taste. Taste is heavy lemon and zest with subtle spices up front. Lemon cake in there on the finish. Quite peppery and zesty. Damn easy drinking. On the carbonated side of things but works for the drinkability of the beer. Bitterness right on the finish and quite lengthy. Holy crap this is good shit! My rating is probably a little higher than normal considering it’s about 30 degrees today and this is a perfect hot weather beer daje (4436) - NORWAY - JUL 15, 2013
