ReV2 (146) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle as Cairngorm Gold. Floral aroma, taste too strongly of wheat for my liking, thin for its strength.

Not a bad Wild ale. Does sort of have a flat aroma. Got hints of caramel. A little bit cloudy appearance with a golden color.

Sweet pale malts, light bronze colour, biscuits and white bread on the palate. Pretty basic bitter.

Finn (4201) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Kjeller 5. Batch L3109. Drukket i Skibotn til julelunsj 25 Des 13. Gyldenbrunt. Nesten ikke skum. Uklar. Litt nøytral blomsteraroma. Smaken er mørk frukt. Gjennomgående fjøspreg - men det skulle jo bare mangle med det navnet. Fungerte bra som matøl.

Golden pour with small white head. Aroma sweet, malty, grainy. Fairly plain grainy, malty flavour with little bitterness. Bit bland.
