Pours a hazy golden orange colour with a huge foamy head. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus and some hops. Flavour of good bitter hops, caramel malts, tropical fruits, caramel, grass and herbs. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a fruity bitter finish. Refreshing and better than Extra Sigtuna Bitter.

Ernest (7600) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle (5.2% version, BB Oct 29, 2012). Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is a lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers/honeysuckle, apricot), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of celery and aspirin. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Certainly wouldnt call it a Vienna...not much malt in either nose or mouth, this is a hop-driven beer from start to finish, and luckily the hops are attractive to the nose and provide ample bitterness in the finish. Sadly, though, its a bit rough otherwise...kinda husky, vegetal, and thin-and-watery. If the BB date is a year from bottling, it is admittedly a bit old now and may be suffering from that. Mike will never give me a bottle of beer ever again.
