Draught at Mikkeller and Friends, CopenhagenAndy_ (1114) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Hazy amber color with compact head. The aroma is mild, hoppy, fruity, and also a bit floral, with a hint of grass and high profile honey; very nice. The mouthfeel is quite smooth, and rather dry; some malt and cereals flavor, maybe hay; strong bitterness with some soft hop resins and some bitter orange peel.
Hazy yellowish orange beer with white head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is faint, slightly citrus fruity at best. Taste is fruity with grapefruit, pineapple and apple juice. There’s also maltiness and bitterness. Finish is long and bitter. Palate is little thinner than medium with medium carbonation. The hops dominate a lot but don’t hide all the maltiness. A refreshing and drinkable beer. Pale Lager? I’d say Premium Lager. JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2013
Fra fad, Mikkeller & Friends. Superfrugtig. Mynte, klementin, citrus, næsten parfumeret aroma. Kattetis. Ok krop. Medium bitter. Sprød. laiti (8484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Draught @ KaislaHermod (8110) - Vantaa, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2013
Aroma is hoppy, fruity and somewhat heavy with gooseberry bush leaves. Flavour has gooseberry bush, minerals, some fruitiness and grapefruit. Also some baking stuff occurs after some sips. Leathery palate. Feels a bit stuffy. Definitely not a pale lager, way too hoppy to be one. Premium lager perhaps?
Sample @ Kaisla, Helsinki. Pale yellow color, thick white head. Catpee, perfume and hops in aroma. Flavor has perfume, tropical fruitiness and mild graininess. Light citrusy finish. Tasty.

Draught. Clearish darker orange with whitish head. Citrus, cats pee, faint orange peel in aroma. Light grapefruit bitterness, some lemony juicyness but still more on the bitter side here. Quite nice though. Perfume and soapy notes in the aftertaste though. Not overhopped, but still a bit on the extreme side to be that enjoyable. cgarvieuk (25224) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 13, 2013
keg at IMBC 2013 ... golden yellow .... thin white head ... soft dry fruit nose ... soft lemon peach fruits ... big dry finish mjs (7510) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2013
(Keg at Rotterdam, 20131012) The beer poured deep golden and hazy. Its head was small, white and it lasted quite long. Aroma had fruitiness, citricness, tangerine and mildly grain. Palate was almost light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, citricness, mildly malta and medium bitterness. Afertasted was mostly bitter. If you dropped the hops there would be nothing left of this beer. Good aroma but othewise too one-dimensional. FatPhil (16635) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 12, 2013

I’ve smelt this a hundred times, but that’s not a bad thing. Really stinky pungent hops. Fairly simple lager palate, quite like Raid, probably a fuller tweak of that. Very nice lager, it makes me angry that pissy lagers have such a hold of th market when tasty lagers like this exist. Nice malts, nice hops. nice pale coloured lager.
Draught @ Rotterdam, Helsinki
Pours cloudy orange with a thick foamy head. Aroma of fruity hops, floral notes, crisp caramely maltiness and some peachy soapiness. Taste is fruity, hoppy and floral with hints of exotic fruits, caramel and soapy notes. Finish is crisp, fruity and hoppy with some malty notes and gooseberries. Doesn’t really taste like a lager at all, very APAish. Great stuff for hopheads.
