Bottle. Cloudy orange body with a big offwhite head. Malty aroma with cardboard and wet grass. Taste also seems oxidized, with sweet malt at the finish. Disappointing. Clearly faults here, for a brewery that pushes out so many new beers through Vinmonopolet the last year I’d expect a higher quality control, or maybe brewing fewer beers and putting a bit more effort in.

Rune (10519) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2014
330ml bottle, batch 6, from Vinmonopolet Langnes Tromsø. Overflow of white foamy head, slowly fading over a clear amber coloured body. Solid lacework. Smell of pale malts, citrus, and herbal hops. Fine mixed taste of fresh lemony hops and earthy malts with suggestions of bitter citrus shells to the ending. Soft in the mouth. Fine bodied. Drinks well. (shared with Finn at his place, 25.06.2014).

djoeye (3076) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 21, 2014
Nice warm off-white hue, spangled lacings, deep golden slightly hazy body. Fruity to the nose, fruity hops, sweet malts, grass, grains, flowers. Tastes good, grassy hops, malts, resin, notes of dark bread, peel. Good mouthfeel, no complaints. Finishes with the hops still playing a main role, malts more roasted, rough bread notes. Overall tasty. Beers like this puts up questions to why Norway has such strict abv-limit (4.75%) for selling beers in supermarkets. Brown 0.33L bottle abv5% BBf09/14 b@Vinmonopolet Tromsdalen.

Arnesen (33) - Tromso, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2014
Pours hazy amber into the glass, with a frothy foam that leaves the glass a little too fast. Aroma of citrus and some malt, taste is dry with a bitter ending. Ok APA.

Holmen1 (4348) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2014
Flaske fra polets nettbutikk, kjellerkald: flott skum som varer og lett uklar gylden. Frisk citrusaroma fra de amerikanske humlene. En real oppkvikker etter orkesterøvelse. Crisp og fin bitterhet i avslutningen. Håper de lager en like god 4,7-utgave og får den ut i butikkene.
