Beer4000 (4402) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2012
On tap @ @ Henrik, Bergen. A hazy deep golden/orange body with a small off-white head. A rather surprisingly and unusually hop aroma, grassy and fruity with something that reminds of rubber hose (thinking of repairing my bike tires). Not really unpleasant but mostly unusually. Flavor is a bit more normal, fruity, pine, light malty and quite bitter. Medium body and mostly bitter in aftertaste. All right but not a real hit for me.

On tap at Henriks. An unclear, amber beer topped by a creamy, beige head leaving wonderful lacings. Very piney nose, with grass, resins and some pineapple. Sweetish, not very malty. The flavour has a pleasant bitterness, balancing the sweetness, but it’s the fruity, piney flavors that dominates. A friend suggests something rubbery, I agree, but it’s in the far background. Full body, maybe a bit heavy on carbonation, still soft. Mostly bitter finish. A nice beer indeed, although sort of unusual. Session style. 120907

finol (2109) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2012
Draught at Man in the Moon. Pours solid looking amber with a yellow head. Hoppy aroma and taste, nice maltyness but truth be told I’m a bit fed up with nelson dominated beers at the moment.

Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm. Muddy brownish amber, small head. Loads ofm minty black currant and pears. Dryish with light body and crisp mouthfeel. Really hoppy and perfumy wiht growing bitterness. Well crafted, refreshing modern style ale.

ClubGonzo (3923) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 6, 2012
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. The Green Cat curls up in my glass in the shape of a hazy darkly honey-hued beer, crowned with a small white head. Nose is distinct cat pee, grass, herbs and hints of melon. Taste is syrupy catty grass tones, grapefruit, hints of herbs and something else that strangely feels like cotton on my tongue, yet escaping identification. Full body. A bit strange, but OK.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2012
On tap @ Henrik. This one pours a cloudy amber-ish body with a small creamy just off-white head. Aroma has a mild fruity touch with tones of sweet malts and hoppy citrus. It’s average carbonated and has a slick to oily quite nice texture. Good flavors. It’s really well balanced the flavors on this one. Some fruity tones and I also get some caramel-strawberry tones. Unfortunately it get’s kinda astringent towards the finish and definitely mouthdrying in the aftertaste. Other than that, this was one really tasty and hoppy cat. Mjaww 15.03.2012

On tap at Henriks. Looks deep amber with a medium off-white head. The aroma is hoppy with notes of orange and citrus. Interesting flavours of berries, pine, grapefruit and something that reminds me of diesel fuel and some sweat. Slick mouthfeel and medium+ bitterness. Soft carbonation. A really one of a kind ale.
