330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5%. Slightly hazy pale golden colour, moderate white head. Pleasant aroma of tropical fruits and citrus. Citric mouthfeel and flavour, some tropical fruits, sharp bitter finish, nearly medicinal. Can't detect the honey.

Poured to a tumbler glass.

A: The body is yellow and crystalline with minimal white head. The retention is low and there's not any lacing.
S: The aroma is very citrusy with a minimal resinous profile. No hoppy nor malty profiles.
T: Clearly this is a passed beer, the taste is mellow, very soft and of weak bitterness that could only resemble an old APA. Not the best bottle or it has been on the fridge way too much. The taste is mostly citrusy and hoppy though.
M: The body is medium low. Carbonation is a bit harsh. Bitterness is medium. Alcohol is unnoticed.
O: Not the best time to have this beer, it's probably passed.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a pale yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was a huge, fluffy / rocky, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A surprisingly powerful aroma of hops, light fruit, and pine.

T: Tasted of a good amount of mosaic hops, pine, light malt notes, mango, passion fruit, citrus (lemon), and grapefruit. A very fruity flavor with just enough hops to make it interesting. An incredibly well balanced taste.

F: A solidly carbonated beer with a dry finish. Light-bodied.

O: Onda is an enjoyable, lightweight APA. Well made, easy to drink - definitely a good beer for the summer.

11-3-16 date on the top. I assume that's March 11, 2016

Body is a cloudy golden with light head and lacing.

Smell strikes me first as juicy grapefruit. Light pineapple and mango notes. Really like this.

Damn, flavor is a let down. Cardboard and vegetal qualities first and foremost. Light resinous hop flavor on the finish. Slight onion. Taste is faint overall.

Fizzy and prickly at first and then becomes a bit fuller. Feels a bit watery, I'd say.

Not my favorite Omnipollo beer. I guess any brewery can strike out. Gotta wonder how the date impacted this.

A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 11th March 2016 poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: It poured a hazy dark yellow colour with a big puffy 3 finger white head that has good retention and leaves thick sticky lacing.

Aroma: Very juicy tropical fruit especially mango, passionfruit, peach and apricot. There is also a hint of pine and citrus lemon.

Taste: Starts tropical with mango and pineapple before slowly turning lightly bitter with pine, lemon and grapefruit taking over.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with mid to high carbonation.

Overall: A nice pale ale that is easy to drink and refreshing.

Poured a murky dark straw color with over two fingers of bubbly white head. The nose is mostly citrus and pine from the mosaic hops but you get a slight hint of biscuit. The flavor is mango more than anything else but you get a little bit of pine bitterness to keep it from being too sweet. The feel is medium with a good amount of carbonation. This is an above average pale ale that is very drinkable and refreshing.

Smell is juicy tropical aromas - passionfruit, mango, guava, lemon, a hint of biscuit, and white wine.

Taste is a pretty good match with the smell - like a fruity tropical cocktail with a crisp white wine dry finish.

Overall, a really drinkable pale ale that stands up pretty well to a lot of better-recognized pale ales.

The colour is yellow with a tint of orange (10 EBC), the liquid is hazy (the beer is unfiltered). The two finger head is white and airy, it sinks slowly leaving lots of lacing.

The smell is bitter-sweet with exotic fruits (mango, bitter oranges, oranges), orange marmalade and lemon curd.

The taste is sweet, like a fruit soda. Clean notes of citric fruits and exotic fruits like mango, pineapple and bananas. Medium body. Smooth aftertaste with some French loaf, lemon candy and banana peel. The short finish reminds of exotic fruit juice.

The carbonation is strong, the many very small bubbles are long-lived. The liquid is smooth.

Kind of a one trick pony, but what it does, it does it good.

Poured from 330mL bottle into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: murky yellow hue with a thick finger of frothy ivory foam. Way cloudier than a pale ale ought to be but the head is very good indeed.

Smell: rich, green, grassy hops atop a lightly sweet malt base. Fresh and enticing!

Taste: the hops exhibit a slightly different character than in the aroma, with the same grassiness but with a dash of lemon in the mix. Fresh, zippy and balanced with the malt's sweetness. Great!

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and a light but airy creaminess. Not too bad.

Overall: this is a nicely hoppy and very, very drinkable pale ale. Great stuff.

Translucent golden ale with a fine and medium-height head. The smell is very floral and perfumed, with an addition of an acidic and citrusy smell, heavy on the grapefruit. The taste is light bitter with notes of lemon, lemon zest and a lot of grapefruit. Light body and medium carbonation, making for a refreshing drink.

Pours hazy light golden yellow with a white head, not much lacing. Smells very fresh with earthy pine, tropical fruits and herbal aroma. Tastes of nice fruitiness, citrusy with nice amount of sweetness. Finished with nice lingering hop flavours, light bodied and very drinkable. Not sure if I have had beers brewed with mosaic hops before, I certainly liked it a lot!

330 ml bottle into pint glass, best before 3/11/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, mango, melon, berries, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, mango, melon, berries, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, grapefruit, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, pine, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is an excellent single hop pale ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
