Great beer from Ægir - close to my favourite style of beer. Classic APA, but also some other notes under the surface.

harrisoni (12660) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle thanks to Rune and Finn on their London holiday Nov 2012. Hazy copper brown golden with lasting beige head. Drunk at home listening to Lloyd Cole and the Commotions so I was in a really good mood. Some spiciness in the aroma. Bit of fish oil in the flavour that’s weird. Some ok malts, but the finish is just about the fish oil and the moderate hoppy bitter finish. Obviously the herring factory in Flam must be next to the brewery. Decent mid style bitter. Not sure I’d say an APA. Malts are fine. Yeah fine.

bottle 50 cl. Dark orange, hazy with minimal white head. Nice fresh fruity aroma with some floral, citrus and bread sence. Sweet taste with light bitterness, with a hoppy and yeasty end. Medium body, quite nice.

This beer looks so good. It doesn't taste as well as it looks, but still it's good. As always with the wonderful beers of Ægir. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, from Vinmonopolet. Has been in my fridge for weeks. This is my first rating in quite a while. Let’s see if I remember how to do this...

Poured into a glass, it gives me a rather small, somewhat rocky/bubbly head. It goes away after about a minute. Could be the fault of my glass, which has been through a dishwasher. Anywho, the color is copper red/brown. There’s a multitude of small hop and/or yeast particles floating around.

The aroma is mostly sweet caramel and piny hops, and those two go together like the proverbial hand in the glove. The mouthfeel is quite full, with a carbonation level in the lower-middle end of the scale. The flavor is just great if you ask me: the hops and the malts play together very well, and not one single thing stands out as The Flavor. There’s a good amount of hoppy flavor, yeah, but it’s very well balanced against the malt. There’s a hint of slightly roasted malts coming through in the finish, leading me into perceiving "parmesany", slightly nutty flavors. The hops still linger in the background. Tastewise it’s also very well balanced - slightly bitter, but also a bit of sweetness in the aftertaste.

Pretty good stuff!

Gr0ve (2113) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2012
500 ml bottle. Hazy dark amber colour. Gets cloudier as one poors the bottle because of sediments. Small off-white fine head. Smoky floral malty aroma. Fairly low carbonation level. Bready malt flavours. Some smoke in the flavours as well. Soft and velvety texture. Nice peppery hoppy bite in the finish.
