Holmen1 (4126) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2016
Supert krankupp på Circus 25.1.16 sammen med Ovesen. Klar kobbergylden med superb skum. Elegant og fruktig (aprikos/fersken) maltdrevet øl med stor drikkbarhet. Humlene er bl.a Styrian Goldings som gir en flott bukett av florale, lett krydrede toner. Kjenner jeg også litt honning? Cremet mundfylde.

Holmen2 (2465) - NORWAY - JAN 25, 2016
From tap at Cirkus with JMD 25.01.16. Dark goldeb. Persistent beige head and lacing. Fruity aroma with some malt and hop. Full, and fruity, flavour, with fresh plums, honey and refreshing hop bitterness. Very quaffable!

From bottle to glass at FCO. It’s not really a bock but it is not unpleasant either. Decent head with lots of lacing. Aroma is unremarkable. The taste has a slight astringency. It tastes of malt and a little honey. Mouthfeel is ok. The color is an interesting copper that almost matches the label on the bottle. It’s a good beer. Overall pleasant. And the bottle is amazingly thick.

yngwie (16065) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2015
On tap at Kick. A clear, dark golden beer with a small, dense, off-white head. Sulphur, caramel malts, some dried apricots and pine cones and grass. Sulphur, hay, grass and caramel malts in the flavor. Decent bitterness. Full body and a soft carbonation. Long finish. Weird aroma in this one, but it’s actually quite tasteful and it drinks easy. 151106

Fashawn (520) - Montesarchio, ITALY - OCT 31, 2015
Ambrata, arancia, schiuma bianco sporco persistente e croccante. Aroma di miele di castagno, qualche agrume ed un po’ di biscott al burro, mandorle inn sottofondo. In bocca c’è miele al castagno, fiori d’arancio, un po’ di pane al burro ed una tostatura che ricorda le mandorle tostate. Finale secco, leggermente amaro, che asciuga la dolcezza iniziale e predispone bene per il sorso successivo. Carbonatazione media e corpo snello, con la bevuta che risulta molto facile.

Absolutbeerginer (51) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 17, 2015
Robe ambrée, brillante, légèrement trouble. Belle mousse dense, beige, moyennement persistante. Au nez des arômes de céréales, pain grillé, mélasse mêlés aux arômes métalliques et d’alcool. Pétillante, crémeuse, son corps est riche et généreux. Belle amertume qui se transforme subtilement en douceur, rappelant un biscuit petit-beurre par exemple. Pas d’une grande richesse aromatique. Un style parfaitement réussi même si par définition je ne suis pas fan de ce style de bières. J’en rependrai !

500ml Draught from Il Santo Bevitore, Venice, Italy (€7.00):
One that I wasn’t all that sure about when I was drinking it, it was easy enough to drink & didn’t really have any off-flavours but it was also one-dimensional & unexciting with the nose lighter than I’d have liked. The beer is quite an average offering & not one that I’d recommend.

Aroma and taste grave nothing to do with bock style. It’s more similar to an IPA, but the bitterness it’s not balanced.

Spina. Colore ambrato, buon cappello di schiuma bianco opaco, media persistenza. Aroma di malto, caramello e in evidenza anche i luppoli, che donano un sentore erbaceo. Gusto in primis dolce, moderatamente, per lasciare il finale amaro dei luppoli, malto in evidenza. Corpo medio, carbonatazione media. Una buona birra, che mi sento sempre di consigliare.
