b3shine (4433) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good; a lightly cloudy light burnt orange with thin white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells of mild ginger and mildly sweet malt. Tastes like it smells with a bit of caramel. Average on the palate. Alright.

unclemike (2180) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Poured a clear deep gold body with an average sized frothy mostly white head. Aroma of honey, fresh dough, slight nutts. Good body with an average mouthfeel and average carbonation, finishes full. Flavor is sweet honey over hearty grainy bread and a touch of nutts. Decent stu

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2014
On tap at Dutch’s. Totally hazy darker orange color. Thin off-white head, couple dots of lace. Good, bright gingery aroma, kind of lightly spicy grain notes, some orange citrus. Good herbal flavors. Medium to bigger body, lightly slick. Light carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink, only lightly spicy. Moderate sweet taste, light herbal bitterness. Interesting, unique, distinctly ethnic ale.

jinroh (266) - ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2014
Draft to a plastic cup @ Nippon Craft Beer Festival 2014. Presented as a "secret beer" - Nora Egyptian Ale. Wow, this one has a strong bee-wax smell coming off already in the beginning. There are some nice cherry notes also underneath. Beer looks nice also, had some nice foam even is a plastic cup, otherwise looks hazy copper. Taste - this is mead, not beer. I am 100% sure that there is honey inside. It also has some softer fruit notes and lingering sweet honey at the end. Some peach and biting alcohol just a millisecond before the aftertaste. Surprisingly good and interesting - could be even better without this alcohol bite at the end.

dnoaksson (652) - , SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2014
Ett opastöriserat öl så grumligt att det borde skickas på remiss till avloppsreningsverket för ett litet kemikaliebad. Som pricken över i kan man använda en gammal örontops som drinkpinne för att addera till helhetsupplevelsen (en del föredrar att plaska ned en kondom, men här vill Magdalena Ribbing varna för att inte alla är roade av tilltaget och att det är säkrast att fråga först). För under alla omständigheter ska detta öl drickas, dyra droppar som det är. Oavsett om glaset är halvtomt eller halvfullt så innehåller det alkohol.

tfredvik (942) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2014
Pours medium amber body that starts out clear, while the last glass is very hazy. The white head is small and collapses quite quickly, and doesn’t leave much lacing. The aroma is sweet and fairly strong, with notes of gingerbread, cookie, sweet caramel, marzipan, spices and some fruitiness. The same goes for the rather strong flavours. The taste is quite heavy sweet, a bit too sweet for my liking. The light bitterness in the finish isn’t enough to balance all this sweetness, and the mouthfeel ends up a bit cloying. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Still a nice experimental brew from Baladin.
[75 cl bottle, enjoyed 1 month before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Storo, Oslo]

Bottle. Hazy amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of bread, lemon peel, toast, clove, white pepper, bubblegum and perfume. Taste is dry and light bitter with notes of cloves, white pepper, bubblegum and perfume. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Quite nice.

Cloudy orange pour with a very thin head. Aroma of peaches and black pepper. Taste is very fruity. Peach and hints of banana. Black pepper in the finish and is slightly spicy.
