BB 01.08.2013, sampled on October 9, 2012.
Clear golden color, smallish white head. Sweet, caramel, malty, grainy, bread scent, some faint fruit esters. Sweet, fruity, bitter, grainy, malty taste. Sweet and grainy, also bitter, aftertaste. Last finishes mainly dry bitter. Medium to sort of smooth mouthfeel, medium high to high bitterness that feels sort of harsh and also grainy dry.
Both a bit cloying sweet and harsh bitter at the same time, OK drinking, but not a new favourite.

Bouteille 33cl, merci à Nisse666, BB 01-08-2013.
Dorée, col blanc fin.
Arôme offre un bouquet grains et malté que je trouve agréable. Note de caramel avec une pointe de maïs.
Palais est malté, caramel, grains, pâle sur une effervescence modérée qui laisse entrapercevoir une amertume aidée par le houblon. Ce dernier reste discret et axé sur un citronné typique noble. Quoique simple, cette bière brille surtout par son profil malté. ekstedt (6790) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2013

330ml bottle - viking line
nice grainy aroma, quite raw. Ok orange, but no head. Flat palate, dull grains, some wooliness, some fattiness. After the aroma, disappoints, this is just grain-juice, with no intrresting aspects. omhper (25161) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2013
Bottled at MacKinley’s Inn, Stockholm. Clear golden, small head. Aroma of hay. Mid dry with light-medium body and soft mouthfeel. Hay, notes of butter. Mid bitter finish. Pleasant. MikeKeller (951) - Kemi, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2012
Draught @ O’ Malley’s Vaasa. Oraingeish golden beer with white head. Bready malts with grassy notes in the aroma. Sweet taste has bready malts and is a bit fruity aswell. Quite refreshing after kebab and hours of shopping hell. ;)
