Det frekke ekornet Ratatosk sprang opp og ned i treet Yggdrasil med fornærmingar mellom ormen ved røtene og ørna i toppen. Når ein vanleg dose humle ikkje er heilt nok, har vi dette frekke ølet å tilby: solid bitterheit som balanserar med lett fyldig maltsødme og kraftig humlearoma og smak.

Gylden brun klar med to fingre høyt beige skum. Lukter humle, fersken, noe brent karamell, mørke frukter og syltetøy. Fyldig. Søtlig bitter smak, mørke frukter, plommer og brent karamell. Kjenner alkoholen. Lang bitter avslutning.

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Aavistuksen punertava, syvän oranssin värinen olut aika pienellä vaahdolla, jota kuitenkin jää kiva pieni kerros oluen pinnalle. Tuoksu makea, mutta juuri muuta siitä ei saakaan irti. Maku yllättävän makea Double IPAksi. Maltaisen karamellinen, hedelmäinen sekä loppupuoleltaan aavistuksen greippisen katkera. Alkoholi puskee hieman läpi.

Rolfarild (190) - NORWAY - JUL 3, 2015
1year beyond bb date. Clear gold if you pour carefully. Medium head almost no lacing. Aroma of bread. The bitterness of the hops is almost gone. Taste very thick malty feeling with dried fruit and malt. Aftertaste dry with a sweet backbone. Quit differnt from a fresh bottle, but very enjoyable.

oh6gdx (25224) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Bottled (backlog). Slightly hazy goldeny orange colour with a creamy off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is fruity, alcoholic and quite evident honey as well. Flavour is similar with also some herbs, grass and sappy notes balacing it up.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle from a trade with Cunningham, huge thanxxx my friend!
Pours amber colored with creamy white head. Smell has lots of caramel and strong fruity hops. Starts very sweet-caramelly, sugary, fruity-spicy hoppy with a hint of alcohol and perfume. Finish is very sweet and caramelly, with some slight fruity hops and a touch of alcohol. Maybe a bit overaged...

Ratatosk, the squirrel that ran up and down the World Tree, Ygdrasil, delivering insults to and from the bird in the branches and the snake, or adder at its roots, was for all intentions, the norse equivalent to the internet. That being said, this beer is a link to the old and to the new. It tastes like something the old Gods would have demanded, and probably deserved, for being so awesome, and it also tastes modern, like something a really clever American who knows modern craft brewing would think of making in some tiny village at the end of a fiords in the deepest valley he could find in Norway. Which, it is, and he did. A whopping 9% tastebomb that hits all the right places, i can’t stress how much the beer impresses me. The only thing that annoys me about it, is, well, I can’t seem to find it these days. If I did, I’d drink it often, there’s no doubt about it.

500ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Cloudy orange color. Medium size, yellowish head, stays. Malty, sweet, raisins, caramel, fruity aroma. Fruity, melon, sweet, hops, cupcakes in taste. Way too sweet.

500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Had to throw nearly a third of the bottle away as it was so yeasty. Rich orange, small head. Nice fleshy fruit hop and citrussy aromas. Slick palate, carbonation can’t cut through it. Very boring taste, just sticky caramelly malts, and a bucketload of hops. Way too sweet. Covers the alcohol well, or should I say smothers the alcohol. Improves a little as it warms as it mellows slightly. But still not good, way too sweet.
