Super good hoppy fresh crispy and lovely. Enjoying the last rays of the end of the summer 2010 POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2011
Clear golden with a very good white head. Good beer, despite its low alcohol has still lots of flavor. Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2010
Pale yellow. Average head. dry flavor with a sturdy hoppyness that dominates the impression. A real thirstkiller. I can’t find much sweetness in this one, but a lot of charachter. Very good - but with a potential of improving. ekstedt (6991) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2010
Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear deep golden, large white head. Earthy haysish malt aroma with spicy, herbal, and grassy hops. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation. Dry with a firm lingering bitterness. A very good thirst quencher. Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2010
Golden color with a big, fluffy whit head which leaves quite a lot of lacing on the glass. Aroma is hoppy, but in a British way: flowers, perfume and some notes of apricot (maybe esters from the fermentation). There’s grassy notes, hay, cookies and tiny bit of caramel. Flavour is fruity, with clear notes of apricot marmelade or so, but there’s also flowers, perfume and cookie malt. Finishes bitter and somewhat dry and refreshing. Average carbonation. Medium bodied.

Appearance: 3/5 rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2010
Clear golden liquid with a small white head that left an even layer of foam on the side of the glass.
Malt, hops, citrus and grass.
Grassy hops, citrsu, malt and hay.
Slightly thicker then average body and medium smooth with just a bit of harshness.
Very nice. This is the kind of beer you could drink pints of. Very easy to drink and even though it has a fairly low ABV it still has allot of flavour. I would have expected it to have a watery light body and little to no flavour. But it has both plenty of hop aroma (not even close to a hoppy IPA though) and an enjoyable bitterness.
If I where to sum up the flavour of this beer I would say it tastes like summer. I believe this is when it should be enjoyed, on a hot summer day. It’s a great thirst quencher but it also works well with food. I had it with some pizza sandwiches that came steaming straight out of the oven and it was a great match. I can imagine this beer would work well with most of the ordinary pub food, burgers and such.
Bottle. Golden, offwhite head. Fresh perfume aroma, malty with toffee notes, and some cream. Malty toffee flavor with hoppy perfume. Decent bitter finish.
