Rune (9661) - Tromsø, - SEP 25, 2012
200ml draught at Pingvinen. Brown-reddish body colour. Tiny layer with a few patches. Modest malt-fruity smell. Brown malts and mid-dried fruits creating a jam-like flavour. Refreshing malt-bitter ending. Quite well bodied. Has definitely got its moments of joyful beer drinking (Bergen, 17.09.2012).

tandembrauer (804) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle in our tent, at Maulavangen Camping, Norway. Pours hazy anger with big yellowish head . Aroma of sulfur, hay, nuts, caramel, flowers. Tastes sweet, like bad homebrew. Reminds me a bit of a bitter.

17cl@Ølhallen’s tap2; off white head, deep dark amber as good as clear body. Completely covered glassware with lacing. Aroma; big bowl of fruits covered with vanilla and spices, caramel malts, creamy sugar. Taste; grassy piney hops, roasted malts, chestnuts, almonds, caramba oil, vanilla, ginger, clove and bread. Normal to soft carbonation, slightly dry feel. Finishes fruity, fruit peel, the spices, toffee-malty, nutty and bready influence, and still hops to the very end. Quality remarkable brew.

Bottled (from Vinmonopolet, Kirkenes). Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is ripe fruits, some gluelike notes. Flavour is sugary, some syrup, mild gluelike notes as well as some wooden notes. Not very pleasant.

Kingmaker (5) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2014 does not count
Flasche aus dem lokalen Supermarkt. Das Bier erscheint nach dem Anguss aus der Flasche leicht unklar und wolkig. Es hat eine schöne orangene Farbe, welche nicht ganz zum Pils passt, wobei auch die Blume nicht rein weiß ist und nach meinem Geschmack etwas zu schnell verschwindet. Im Geschmack und Geruch ist das Sognapils allerdings wirklich interessant. Es steigt ein schön herber Geruch von Grass, Gewürzen und Apfel in die Nase, wobei sich auch ein brotartiger Malzgeruch darunter mischt. Sehr spannend! Der Geschmack setzt fort was der Geruch versprochen hat. Passend säuerlich und schön bitter, wobei es auch eine klare Süße hat, was es interessant macht. Alles in allem wirklich ein "anderes Pils" wie auf der Flasche versprochen.

Brun farge med fint hvitt skum. Uklar. Lukt av malt og karamell. Medium søtlig og hint av mørke stenfrukter i smak. Lettdrikkelig. Svak bitter avslutning.
