Sampler@Amundsen Brygghus, Oslo catching up with lovely Sigridur 18.08.13. Straw coloured body, tiny lasting head and some lacing. Grass, straw, lemon and some sour notes in both aroma and taste.

On tap at Nydalen Mikrobryggeri. Copper colored, clear & good foam. Aromas of malt, peach, also dried fruits. Medium body & medium high complexity. Good bitterness & balance. Very enjoyable- really one of the best bitters I've tasted so far.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Palme (3284) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2014
On tap @ Amundsen. This is a near clear deep amber almost a little ruby red looking one with a medium sized islandy off-white head, leaving some lacings. The nose is mildly caramel sweet, red apples and some mild fruity things here as well. A bit mild but nice. Quite thin and almost a little watery in the mouth and it’s quite gently on the carbonation. It tastes quite alright actually. Soft woody caramel, it’s really English in the style, and it thank God, fully lacks that buttery diacetyl often found in these. A little roasted hint in the finish. It actually tastes quite alright this. Sessionable, could chug down a few of these. 14.02.2014

Draught @ Nydalen Bryggeri og Spiseri, Oslo
Pours slightly hazy amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, floral and hint of butterscotch. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long biscuit and caramel finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2014
On tap at Nydalen Bryggeri. A reddish light brown beer with a small, dense light beige head. The aroma has some fruityness, a touch of caramel malts and some grassy hints. Caramel, a faint roasted touch and some fruityness in the flavor. Lacking a bit on bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation, dry. Malt dominated finish. Pretty boring this one, far from bad though. 140502

Inbreak (2013) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 14.02.2014, tap @ Amundsen Bryggeri & Spiseri:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet roasted, caramel malts, candied sugar, slightly roasted grain, hay, nuts hints of rye bread. Taste is slightly dry, light roasted malts, hay, nuts, grass, weeds, caramel. Longlasting bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

Rune (7963) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
250ml poured from tap into a tulip shaped glass at Amundsen Bryggeri & Spiseri. Hazy dark apricot coloured body. Foamy white head reduced to a stable layer. Spotty lacing. Mid-dry aroma of resinous hops and caramel malts. Balanced taste profile of brown malts and leafy hops. Nice bitter tail. Soft in the mouth. Easy to drink. Decent session beer (Oslo 12.02.2014).

gunnar (5220) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2014
On tap at Amundsen. Pours almost clear dark golden with a small white head. Grainy malty aroma. Taste is moderate sweet grainy, with a pleasant amount of British hops for balance, lingering flowery and spicy hops.
