look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: pale gold, with a one finger high foam head that leaves little to no lacings.

S: citrus, hops, caramel sweetness. Raspberry? Fruit candy of some kind at least.

T: hops, lemon juice and zest, a bit of sweetness that balances well against the hoppy bitterness. Dry, green and hoppy flavors.

M: smooth and creamy. Carbonation is medium high.

O: a very good summer beer, perfect when thirsty. Bitterness is a bit on the low side, but you still get that hoppy goodness.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Semi-opaque/turbid tangerine with a rustic but low crown which dissipates quickly. Some carbonation arising. Occasional lacing,

S: Upfront apricot, peach and grapefruit form a sweet and fresh scent followed by a light, peppery (possibly tangy) finish.

T: A light cream sweetness, almost fudgey at times. then BAM, a yeasty dryness in collaboration with the aforementioned characteristic acridity of the hops, amidst a surprisingly sturdy malt-body for an APA. However, the overall impression is that of a very balanced presentation.

M: Good sturdy body here, full and thick along with a active carbonation.

O: All in all, this "Lilla Gubben" is a mellifluously equilibrated sensation, nothing dominates on the account of something else. Everything is noticeable throughout the tasting experience as well as well-crafted in itself. Have one for yaself -- monkey see, monkey do! ;)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

The colour is gold (7 EBC), the liquid is clear. The two finger head is airy and off-white. It sinks slowly leaving some lacing on the glass.

The smell is strong and hoppy. Sweet notes of toffee, honey and fruit candy. Some green floral hoppy notes, some citric fruits and – peels. It lacks some body.

The taste is hoppy and refreshing. Some green almost harsh notes, and anonymous citric fruity flavours. The bitterness is on the mild side for a APA, however the malts are not that strong either so the overall impression is “well balanced”. Medium body. The aftertaste got some alcohol (surprising at just 4.6 %), green hops, clean medium strong bitterness. Exotic fruits and flowers, hints of honey. The malt flavours reminds more of a pilsener than an APA. Green plants in the smooth finish.

The carbonation is medium strong; the mid-sized bubbles smooth. The liquid is semi-smooth.

Definitely a thirst drencher than a showcase for the hops. Will probably work well on hot summer days.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A: Slightly hazy golden color with medium tall white, a bit uneven head that leaves decent lacings.

S: Lots of pine and lots of tropical fruits, all from the floral hops. The bitter hops are also strong, while the caramell malt is overpowered by the hops. A mild sweetness in the back though.

T: The hoppy overdose is a bit milder while the malt is a bit stronger (but still lacks some body), this makes it better balanced.

M: Aftertaste is short and mostly bitter. Body is way too thin while carbonation is medium and smooth.

O: With more malt they would have gotten more body and higher ABV - that's what this beer lacks.
