3.3/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: Pour is clear golden with bubbles galore. A decent white head, thick and rather tall stays for a surprisingly long time. Nice lacings.

S: Smell is rather strong and holds a nice balance between semi-sweet malt and bitter hops. Some floral hops brings tropical fruits; pineapple and grapefruits.

T: Not far from the smell, but everything is milder and not very well balanced - a bit offensive actually.

M: Body is on the thinner side (no surprise considering the ABV) and the carboantion is rich and strong. Aftertaste is rather long and bitter.

O: Not bad, but more malt would have brought more body and more complexity and balance...

The liquid is clear, the colour is pale gold (6 EBC). The three finger head is warm-white, compact and long lasting. Lots of lacing occurs.

The smell is hoppy and quite bitter. Citric notes, some flowers and a mild sweetness. It reminds somewhat of an APA.

The first taste is bitter with some metallic off-flavours and some tartness. There are hops, alright: Citric notes of lime, bitter orange and grapefruit. But the body is light and it doesn’t keep up with the hops. There are some clean sweet flavours. Aftertaste is citric without much bitterness. There is a slight chemical detergent-like off-flavor and hint of apricots. The finish is hoppy and a bit bitter.

The carbonation is medium to strong, the many bubbles medium sized and fresh. The liquid is a bit light.

A surprisingly hoppy brew from a Swedish macro brewery aimed for the supermarkets. But there are not enough sweetness nor body to give balance to this beer. Ant the off-flavours makes it less drinkable than I had hoped for.
