look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pale gold with no head, lace is nice though. Looks a bit listless, however.

Smells nice: lots of hops, very fruity with tangerine mostly. Touch of orange sherbet, pretty nice but after a while a bit cloying, could use something a bit more resinous to tamper the sweet fruity aromas.

Taste is fairly hoppy as well, and kind of dry. Notes of fresh cut grass and lemongrass, a bit of bitterness, some mild citrus and pine late. Fairly decent pale ale, but nothing exceptional, could use more oomph in the hop side, particularly early hopping for bitterness.

Slight tingle, fluffy almost on the feel. It's quite nice, I like it.

Decent; could have been better though, and it's quite easy to pinpoint the shortcomings and where improvements could be made.

On-tap at the Local Taphouse in Sydney during their Scandinavian Tap Makeover.

Pours a very pale, very clear yellow colour almost like a pilsener or pale lager. Body is light, but smooth. Head forms a minor crown of white which dissipates pretty quickly leaving very little. Carbonation is fine and noticeable when tilted.

Nose is round and fruity, with a pleasant definite hoppiness that gives a light but supple sweetness and fragrance. Slight green, vegetative overtones, but it never reaches anything that could be termed "sharp". Not bad, if a little bit light.

Light entry as well, before some mild vegetation characters on the mid palate. These swoop out pretty quickly, leaving reminiscences of stonefruit and light dry bitterness towards the back. Finish is empty and a little dull.

Carbonation, which was firm at the start, burns itself out pretty quickly, leaving the beer feeling pretty flat.

It's nicely drinkable at least, refreshing and easy to go down. There's no doubt that it's pretty dull, but it's pleasant enough.

The colour is amber, the liquid a bit hazy. The low head is white.

The smell is quite light. Some mild tart wheat-notes, citric fruits and butter. Clean bitter notes. Fresh and hoppy.

The taste starts off with a distinct yet mild buttery flavour. Somewhat earthy hops. Red wine gums and a moderate sweetness. The earthy hints pass in the aftertaste, giving room for cleaner and crispier flavours. Citric fruits, black and red currants in the finish.

The carbonation is very strong; the bubbles small and sharp. The liquid is smooth.

A little straggling at first, this one turns out to be a drinkable and refreshing beer.
