500ml bottle @ Cardinal. Slightly hazy orange body with a dense off white head. Aroma is vague citrus and grain. Flavor is malty and a bit fruity with hint of citrus/hops. Medium body, not very outstanding, just a nice, well balanced ale.

Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Dry hoppy aroma, a touch floral and some honey. Deep orange. Full body, low carbonation, but sticky on the tongue. Apple in the thaste. Simple bitter taste, bitter hops. And light roasted grains too. Maybe not in tip-top condition when I got to it, but still good.

larsga (7656) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2007
Big offwhite shiny lasting head with some really big bubbles. Hazy dark yellow body. Harmonic medicinal/herbal hoppy aroma with thin mealy malty notes. Dry golden malty taste with herbal hop notes. Dry resiny aftertaste. Nice, uncomplicated session beer. (0.5l bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger.)
