gunnar (6918) - Sandnes, - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Valkendorfgaten, Bergen. This one was a bomb, opened with an explotion, cap cutted my skin, left it bleeding, and my hearing went deaf for some minutes, also messed up my hotel room more than usual, but there was still a little pond left for me to rate, there is a god afterall, and it poured cloudy brownish with a huge tanned head. Aroma of detonated explosives, caramel and bready malts. Taste is yeasty, sweet malty, nothing to remember besides the explotion.

pityu (294) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle - Slight hazy amber colour, small white head, good retention. Delicate hop aroma, some caramel, roasted nuts, raisins. Taste is toffee, biscuit, peach, fine herbal and resinous hops, smooth bitterness in the end. Medium body and carbonation, pleasant bitter and fruity finish. Balanced bitter but nothing special.

0,33 l bottle, Sörmanufaktura.
Semidark hazy ale with a small off white-tan head. Aroma of some toasted grains, light caramel. Easy, sugary taste with some burnt caramel, easy light hops, some nuts and roasted character. Not bad but excepted more.

Leighton (15331) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Keg at Archea - Florence. Pours a rather fetching clear Amber with a thick, creamy tan cap. The aroma holds dried berries, faint leathery earth and toasted grains. Medium sweet flavorbwith slight grassy hops, crackers, leaves, more dried berries, fruit leather. Light-medium bodied with average carbonation. Moderately sweet on their josh but still pretty well balanced, with more fruits, some ripe orange, grain, leafy and grassy bitterness. Not bad. Pretty good take on a British style.

Luca78 (25) - ITALY - MAY 26, 2015
On tap. Nothing of special and not so drinkable. No flavour and bold. To much malty for me. Forgettable.

BaroneBirra (350) - Gorizia, ITALY - APR 11, 2015
Pours reddish with small creamy head. Aroma is quite weak, but pleasant. Nice balance of hops and malts, but a little to much bitterness in the final

33cl bottle. Clear medium brown pour with thick off-white head. Aromas of rye bread, copper and herbs. Taste is heavy bitter, burned bread and sweet malt. Medium carbonation, light palate. Aftertaste is hoppy and sour burned malts come from the background. Average bitter, well done.
