look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours slightly hazy, gold, small head

very light fresh aroma

More to flavour, obvious centennial influence. Dry, mineral finish. Medium bitterness

really should punch much more with 6% behind it, it tastes like a middling, 3.6% golden ale.

Large bottle poured into a stemmed glass. L: Amber color, good white carbonation. S: Moderate hop aroma, floral, pine. T: Definitely an assertive APA out of Norway with good bitterness. Moderate, clean malt, but nice resinous bitters coming through throughout. F: Medium body. O: I'm excited to try other beers from Nogne O. Solid take on an APA.

This is an interesting brew, mixes of care me and honey and some fruit, likely centennial, has an almost sugary fruityness. The hops also have a grassy taste, that lead to a distinct earthy finish. This is a mix of English ipa and pale ale, not an APA for sure but judged as an EIPA or PA this is nice a tad sweet for me but we'll within the style. The use of Marris Otter make a nice cracker sweet malt where where the hops bring a fruity earthyness. A little muddled for me but others I'm with love the almost honey and fruit taste.

When pouring, a huge storm of bubbles rise up from the bottom of the glass, big head, dark blonde colour. Not a lot in the nose, something biscuity, hints of orange.
On first sipp mainly hoppy bitterness, once again the bicuits are there, just the faintest hints of orange. The taste reminds me a bit of the smell spruce trees, not the most pleasant thing.
On the thin side, could use a bit more carbonation.

This is the kind of beer that reminds I'm Belgian, for me this beer lacks balance, there's nothing wrong with bitterness, but as far as I'm concerned you need something to fight back a bit.

Wonderful fruity, refreshing aroma and taste. Much like kiwi fruit. Very delicious and easy drinker with good lingering bitterness that's not overwhelming.

Amber color, cloudy (unfiltered). A lot of sediment - pour slowly and DON'T drink this one out of the bottle! Creamy, malt flavor with only a slight bitterness. If it didn't say "pale ale" on the bottle I never would have guessed it. Not bad.
