Aku Aku Lemongrass Ale

Nøgne Ø Aku Aku Lemongrass Ale is another brew from Nøgne that was brewed especially for the Aku Aku Tiki bar in Oslo. 5.5% very light yellow in colour and quite hazy, initial aroma had some ginger but very little lemongrass and spicy. The lemongrass was a lot more dominant on the palette and I did not like this after-taste at all, dare to say it was like drinking a lemon toilet spray at times. 

Quite soapy and had some mild bitterness but did not get much malt at all. Nice to have tried this and possible during the summer drinking this cold might be a lot more approachable, either way this time round it was a flop for me. Tyttebær is finally joined by another beer as my worst ranked Nøgne beer.
