Rune (8490) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2013
500ml bottle bought at Kjeller 5 in Tromsø. Golden body, slightly hazy. Decent white bubbly head. Rings of lace down the glassware. Grainy nose, sheer notes of floral hops. Mild taste of grain, peach, and honey sweetness. Short hop bitter ending. Soft in the mouth. Not a great one, quite alright with the Sunday food though (Tromsø 15.12.2013)

ClubGonzo (4232) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle from Lerøy Mat Galleriet, Bergen, shared with Foffern. Pours a light golden body and a small white head. Nose is sugary bubble gum tones, faint pale malts and hints of peaches. Taste is faint sugary malt tones and hints of grass. Watery palate, medium carbonation. All is far too weak in this one.

Foffern (1298) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle shared with ClubGonzo. Is clear with a straw yellow color with a small off-white head. The aroma is slightly sweet with notes of hay, sweet candy and some pale malt and herbs in the end. The taste is very similar but has a higher proportion of spices. Mouth feel is a bit watery and bitterness is light. A little weak and boring golden ale.

larsga (6321) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2013
Biggish offwhite creamy lasting head. Clear golden body with carbonation. Floral fruity aroma with strawy earthy notes. Dry-sweet strawy earthy fruity taste with floral notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish floral fruity aftertaste with smoky (?!) metallic notes. Nice, drinkable, interesting. Surprised by the smoke, but it does work. (0.5l bottle, Meny Strømmen Storsenter.)
Earlier Rating: 5/3/2010 Total Score: 3.1
Biggish shiny offwhite coarseish head. Amber body. Strawy floral aroma with fruity notes. Dry-sweetish floral aroma with fruity notes. Dry-sweetish floral strawy taste with dusty notes. Mild mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry buttery linoleum aftertaste ends in emptiness. Unusual finish, but a nice, drinkable, balanced beer otherwise. (0.5l bottle, RealAle.com.)

Bottle from Meny Manglerud enjoyed at home
Funny name for a beer. It pours golden with a white head. Smells of grain, malts and some hops. Moderate sweet, some boiled vegetables, spices and malts. Medium bitter, some green hops. Not a very interesting beer at all. The beer contains alot of hops; sadly they are all bitter hops. A small dose of aroma hops would improve this i think

Smells sweet, almost like cotton candy with a hint of metal. Golden, clear color. Taste is almost missing, and the taste that is there is not anything special. A pilzner at best and I don't like pilzners... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oysteib (96) - NORWAY - APR 20, 2013
From bottle. Clear, dark golden color. Malty, pleasant aromas, with pilsner like malt quite dominant. Unpleasant, metallic aftertaste. It says "continental style beer" on the bottle, so they are probably trying for a pilsner like feel. If so, they succeed well, but not my cup of tea
