Crystal clear gold with a sweet aroma of lemon and Apricot. Refreshingly crisp with zesty sweet lemon, mandarin and apricot on the palate, balanced by a juicy malt background

500 ml bottle, from Gulating Ølutsalg, Stavanger. ABV is 4.5%. Clear deep golden colour, large to moderate white head. Aroma of citrus peel, mandarin and apricots, also malts with hints of toffee. The flavour has some malty sweetness with hints of toffee and caramel, distinct notes of hops (citrus and apricot again), and a dry, bitter and earthy finish.

Pours crystal clear deep gold with a skiff of white head that rapidly becomes a film, streaky lacing. The aroma is has a lemon and grapefruit citrus quality from the hops and a clean malt character. Flavor is grainy pale malt, a woodsy hop bitterness and a stale green bitterness and bite to the finish. It is very dry and crisp with active carbonation that gives it a fairly light feel and a bracing finish. This is a nice, clean, bracing APA-like beer that is pretty easy to drink and has a nice firm bitterness. The real weak spot is the flavor but even it is mainly a victim of being principally bitterness without tons of flavor. A tasty easy drinker.
