raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - AUG 25, 2008
Bottle 0.5 l. Lager golden, thin lager head. Slightly musty hayish nose, orange. Flavor is malty, citrus bitter. Some mineral water in the background, salty? Slightly sour and acidic in a Finnish lager way. Some very stingy perfumy notes hit after a couple of sips. Strange combo, packs a lot of pils like qualities.

Bottle transparent (white), 500 ml
Appearance: Pours cloudy but very lively orange with slightly orangy - hued. Thick, frothy, rather small but strong and longly lasting head. Head is regular in its structure with regular bubbles. Body is medium carbonated. There traces of lacing.
Aroma: Nice fruity, orangy - clementine hoppy touch from New, Zeland Gem and Hallertau hops, refreshing hints of lime. Aroma all in all is gentle not imposing and of a faint origin. Caramelly - malty character is hidden.
Flavour: Nice chewy front, slightly bitter on palate, aromatic mineral - fruity retronasal aroma, distinguishable notes of lime, orange, clementine, rounded taste thanks to carmelized malted barley geving chewy - malty ballancing character of the beer. Surprisingly complex when it comes to a simple bitter, maybe thanks to this New Zeland hoppy accent. Tangy, some grainy aftertaste, smooth texture, easy going, slightly salty. Finish duration is average.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is smooth, carbonation is medium to lively as beer seems slightly salty, finish feel is very clean and lightly to moderate astringent.

A bi on the tiny side - ales. Ho-hum. still some pungent bits et.al - & is still quite a clean drop. I’d drink more - I dont think you can go to wrong on this if you’re a beer drink. Wanky raters many not dig it. It’s humble, yet true

Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2008
Bottle. Smells a bit of honey, maybe som grass there too. Taste is honey, some sweet malt and caramel. Too little of everything though. Boring.

DrFunk (80) - Sorumsand, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2008
500ml bottle from ICA. Pours clear golden. Grassy aromas, not pleasant. Thin, allmost Budweiser-like taste. One should expect more from a brewery like this.

CH-303 (2084) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2008
Appearance: Clear golden orange. Little bit of fizzy head. Aroma: Grass and some hops. Yeast. Taste: Grass, skunk. Not nice at all. Some bitterness. Info: 500ml bottle, 1/4-2008
I am not sure whether this bottle was off, or if it is actually supposed to taste this bad. It is a clear bottle, so you never know if too much light might have ruined it.
