330 ml bottle, from SPAR Jørpeland. ABV is 4.5%, IBU 20. Overcarbonated, my slim pilsener glass fills completely by white (or slightly off-white) foam, a hazy and brownish-golden beer appears only very slowly. Unusual aroma of tea and lemon juice. Fizzy and citric mouthfeel. Dry and weird herbal flavour of tea, hints of lemon rind. One of the least successful beers I've had from Nøgne Ø.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Black colour, moderate to low tan head. Strange and unpleasant aroma of solvent and dandelion roots, also dust and wet basement. The flavour is not particularly good either, dry and dusty with notes of stale cold coffee. Remarkably poor.

330 ml slimline can, from SPAR Jørpeland. ABV is 4%. Clear pale golden colour, moderate to small white head. Strong sweetish aroma of malt sugar and newmown grass. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. The flavour is citric, grassy and fairly crisp, but still with some residual sweetness, very moderate herbal hops in the finish. Better than I feared.
