Floral, grassy aroma, notes of hay and fruit. Pours hazy golden with medium white head. Subtle malt sweetness in the taste, delicate hoppy finish. Light, thin-textured body, soft carbonation. Refreshing easy-drinking beer, classic.

A fairly decent ale. Looks: golden with a big white head. Aroma: orange peel, lemon, caramel and some wheat. Taste: Some citrus lemon, orange and a slightly hoppy bitter finish. A good everyday ale. From a can, price paid: free (out of date).

abemorsten (3593) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2016
Lys disig gyllen kropp med lavt hvitt skum som blir liggende som en film. Fruktig, bæraktig, sukkeraktig aroma. Besk og pepperaktig med en lang og ubehaglig ettersmak preget av aceton.
