ClubGonzo (3948) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014
Can. Pours a light clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma is water melon, red fruits, sweet gooseberries and hints of pale malts. Taste is pale malts, grapes, red fruits and hints of straw. Light body, medium to high carbonation. Not a bad pale ale, actually, which supersedes my expectations of Spendrup’s "craft" series Pistonhead.

finol (2110) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014
Can from Systembolaget. Pours clear golden with a very shortlasting head. Nice tropical hop aroma. Drinkable lager, some tropical hops and pear popcicle taste. Tad too sweet and a hint of soap.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2014
330ml can, trade with djoeye. Film-type, lacing layer to a next to clear, golden coloured body. Sweaty hops on the nose, backdrop of grainy malts. Likewise, the taste profile is made up by sweaty hops, a citric touch, and pale malts. Drying closure. Medium to thin bodied. Rather bland in the mouth. Drinkable, but easy to forget (shared with Finn at his place, Tromsø 25.06.2014).

Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2014
Boks 0,33l. Spandert av Rune og delt under seanse på Nerstranda 25 Jun 14. Gyldengul. Lavt skum. Aroma av fotsvette. Smaken det samme men en anelse frukt. Kjedelig.

Ktwse (1898) - SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2014
Pours clear yellow with a finger of white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, light resin and citrus. Taste is bready and malty with light bitterness before a sweet finish. Light, crisp body with average carbonation.

MiP (13529) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2014
Can, 4.5%. Mild, but good American hop aroma, floral and caramelly. Clear dark golden colour. Small tight white head. The flavour is lagery at first, but then comes a nice enough hop note, like the aroma, mild, but good. Watery finish.

Bamsen78 (2991) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2014
Can. Pours clear pale golden with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of Centennial hops and yeast, with some subtle malty touches. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with citric notes and estery overtones. Soft carbonation. Bitter finish with some estery touches. Not bad.

Peter_L (636) - SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2014
Burk från SB. Gyllengul vätska med vitt skum. Markerad humlearom med drag åt gröna grönsaker. Smaken lite av en besvikelse. Tunn munkänsla.

olsentho (5) - SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2014 does not count
33 ml can. actually a very decent beer to a low price. Could be a good introduction to the IPA swamp that all swedes are now into. Though this is not anywhere close to those :-)

ramboraffe (346) - SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2014
330 ml can. Clear golden with white head. Smell is sweet hoppy. Taste is sweet and hoppy. Funky hops. Sweet finish.
