Rerate, on tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Golden colour, large white head. Aroma and flavour much like the first sample. Medium dry, refreshing.

Original rating: From the tank at the brewery, RBESG 2006. Deep golden colour, slightly hazy, low head. Moderate hoppy aroma with grapefruity notes. The mouthfeel is slightly watery. Hoppy flavour with a peppery finish. Dry.

Pours a hazy golden color.

Smells of honey, light citrus and tropical fruits.

The taste is a weird combination of tart and tropical fruit. Some slight hop bitterness but otherwise this is mostly all fruit sweetness

Mouthful is dry,and carbonation high.

500mL bottle from IBS

Pours an empty yellow with strong head and lacing.

Smell is very yeasty a la a German beer like a helles lager. Beyond that are some sharp hops and some biscuity malt which comes across as a lighter version of Boston lager.

Taste is bitter but in a yeasty and kind of watery way. Mouthfeel is similarly non-descript. There is a growing sweetness which is even more lager-esque.

This beer grew on me a bit as I drunk it but is not really an American Pale Ale but more of a European-influenced beer. Disappointing as a result.

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

Pours a slight hazed golden hue which leaves a three finger dimple laden head and lacing everywhere,the smell is freshly cut grass,lemon zest,a touch of lavender and herbal hops,the mouthfeel is light bodied with light carbonation and the taste is better with hints of lemon mrytle,tangy sunrise limes,a touch of citrus and bubblegum with finish being neutral and dry and overall its a sessionable ale without being something you venture back but worth a look if on tap at ur local.

A: Pours a golden colored liquid with slight haze inte the glass. A two finger high head forms at first but then dissolves into a thin layer. The head is uneven sized and foamy. Small amounts of lacings can be found on the glass. Looks very fresh!

S: Smells spicy hops, hay and a bit of koriander. It is surprisingly a bit sour at first but it quickly goes away and gives room for more malt and bread characters. No alcohol fumes whatsoever.

T: Tastes dry grass and some hints of oranges and grapefruit. Earthy and spicy hop tones. It rounds off with a pleasant bitterness at the end. Balanced and nice.

M: Medium to strong carbonation. It feels smooth and easy to drink.

O: A nice APA with high drinkability. Pairs well with many types of foods.

My first Dugges beer. Pours clouded orange amber. Flavor profile is nice. Citrusy with a very minimal hop tone there. Smooth as well as nicely rounded. Definitely enjoyable and worth seeking out. Carries all the characteristics you want to see in the style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The colour is amber; the liquid is just a little bit hazy. The white head is very high and firm. Nice lacing.

The smell is bitter and fruity with sour citric flavours mostly grape fruit and lemon peels.

The taste is surprisingly sour – but it is a passing flavour, giving room for bitter notes of grape fruits. Although the taste is powerful, the body is just medium. The malt is fresh and sweet, but it stays in the background at all times. I noticed some minerals and a discreet sweetness. The aftertaste is rather short with a gentle bitterness and a touch of bread-like malt.

The carbonation is medium strong; the liquid is light (but not watery). A nice and well done APA.

Clear and light gold in color. Large white head.

Hoppy aroma as first impression. A bit of honey peeks through after a short while.

Hoppy and grassy would be the primary taste. Malt shows up as a crackery kind of flavor. You get just a little honey in the middle, and the hop bittering lingers nicely into the finish.

Very light, with moderate carbonation. Refreshing.

Overall, quite good. An excellent session beer. Not going to set the world on fire with complexity or deep flavor, but nicely done.
