djoeye (889) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2013
500 ml clear bottle abv 4.2, bought at K Kilpishalli Finland. Vanilla head, dark golden, or a little dark amber body. Spicy malty scents, coffee and lots of hops. Average mouthfeel with some roasted bitter style. The flavour has hops, caramel malts, hints of walnut. Ending is not longlasting, it’s dry and contains nutty malts. Overall alright, and quite mild for being a bitter.

Sigmund (4809) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Sample from clear bottle at Copenhagen Beer Festival 2013. Served cold. Deep golden to amber colour, low white head (the bottle had probably been open a while): Modest "typical standard bitter" aroma with toffee notes. The flavour is not too sweet, and fairly refreshing, with nutty and biscuity notes and a hint of toffee. The hops are too moderate.
