ClubGonzo (4230) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2010
Bottle from Lerøy Mat, Bergen. Hazy brown body with a non-significant white head. Nose is weird funky yeastiness with some sourish, malty tones. Highly unusual. Kinda like a musty cellar filled with sour socks dipped in vinegar. Or something. Can’t really put it into words, but I suppose a crazy dish like "rakfisk" ("Øl Til Rakfisk" means "Beer For Rakfisk" in Norwegian), fermented fish served with potato tortillas ("lefse"), onions and sour cream deserves an equally strange beer. Taste proves much less strange, or at least much less flavorful. Sour-ish malty tones, some yeast and a slightly watery palate. Hints of grassy hops and pine. Not too exiting, after all. Personally, I think a good lambic or a rauchbier would suit "rakfisk" much better.

Aroma; High yeast notes, with almost a meaty smell to it. Flavour; The same as the nose, with a good bitternes. Mild and fresh!!

thebeertourist (4901) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2010
Bottle from Fenakroken. Pours ruddy brown, quite hazy. Interesting milk chocolate caramel aroma. Complex ginger bread and chocolate flavours matched by grassy hops. A slight hint of metal. Difficult to place style-wise. A dry dunkel, maybe? Abolutely worth trying even without rakfisk.

yngwie (14069) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle. It’s a bit hazy, this golden beer with an orangey tint, and topped by a two-finger off-whte head soon diminishing into a thin layer of bubbles. Nice lacings. Some yeastyness on the nose, but mostly a caramel maltyness with pale malts and a touch of fruits. Medium body, a bit more effervescent than I would like it. There’s a balancing bitterness in the mouth, with the same caramel, malts, fruits and yeast found in the aroma. Quite bitter in the finish, with the malts and yeast subdued. I think this one would do nice with rakfisk, but on it’s own it’s a rather uninteresting beer. 100514

Skinnyviking (7231) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle. Courtesy of Rune. High creamy and lasting off-white head. Hazy orange amber body. Dry fruity roasted malt caramel aroma with hops notes. Nice hops bitterness in combination with a fruity caramel flavor. Low carbonation. Short aftertaste. Unfortunately it feels a bit watery.

Gr0ve (2155) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2010
330 ml bottle. Brown and hazy. Tall fine-laced white head that clings to the glass. Nice and soft nutty chocolatey malt aroma. Bready toffee flavours. Caramel and chocolate. Fairly high carbonation level. Distinct papery and metallic hop flavours. Overall a nice beer with quite a bit of flavours and a nice texture. Should work well with food.
