Had this beer on draft at Bjork Bar (in the Marriott) in Stockholm. I wasnt expecting much, but I ordered a pint because there were only two beers on draft that day.

A - Amber-brown body and light tan head. Light lacing throughout.

S - Balanced smells of citrusy hops, bready malt, and sweet apple.

T - Earthy, rye-bread malt flavor and slight orange-like dry hop to finish it out. Seemed quite well-balanced IMO.

M - Perfect carbonation from tap. Refreshing after a long, cold day of sightseeing.

O - I thought this was a pretty well-balanced pale ale, not too malty and not too much sharp hoppy notes. I thought I was just going to order just one, but ended up ordering about 4 pints before going to bed. Its not something I would seek out in bottle/trade, but I would definitely get if I see it on draft again somewhere.

One of my favorites. In it's understated simplicity a fantastic beer. Neat, sorted and with a crystal clear taste profile. Loads of citrus, especially grapefruit. Clear, amber like liquid. Only 4,8% of alcohol. All and all a great summer and session beer.

A little boring and stale pale ale without having any excessively exciting flavors or aromas. It isn't nearly as tangy as some other beers in the same style but at the same time 4,8 is quite low ABV.

The taste is however pretty good for being such a easy beer to drink. Drunk on tap.

I had this on tap in Gothenburg, Sweden, and definitely feel it was better than its ratings. Recommended.
