Rune (7346) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2014
Sampled from a big bottle at the Grand Tasting at the RBNG-event at Fredrik 3.’s Hall. Off-white head to a cloudy, dark amber coloured body. Earthy malt and vanilla sweetness on the nose. Flavoured with herbal hops, raisin, vanilla and even joined by a touch of liquorice. Bittersweet end. Noticeable alcohol. Tolerable sweet. Okay in small doses (Fredriksten festning, Halden 15.02.2014).

From a shared 75cl bottle at RBNG-14. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. Sweet and malty aroma with caramel and hints of alcohol. A bit too sweet for my taste, but fairly well balanced.

Medium sand-colored head. Cloudy reddish-amber body. Fairly fresh fruit nose. Some sweetish toasted malts and hint of alcohol. Body is much lighter than expected. Slick texture. Fruity sweetness in the flavor, as well, paired with a light malt base. Discreet bitterness, hint of mild spices and alcohol. [Shared bottle at Grand Tasting, RBNG2014]

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle sample @ RBNG-14. Pours a brown amber-ish hazy body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is caramel, fusel, herbs, pine, red wine and hints of grains. Taste is fusel alcohol, grains, red berries and hints of caramel and parmasan cheese, for some reason. Full body, medium carbonation. Fair enough, but not great.

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle, 75cl, at RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. A dense, light beige head forms over an unclear amber colored body. The aroma is pretty malty, with a boozy touch and some fruity hints. Full-bodied and quite low on carbonation, warming. The flavor has caramel, dried apricots, some prunes and quite a lot of booze. Lasting boozy finish. A beer I find too boozy, without being bad in any way. 140215
