Ernest (7200) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough), with a note of Meyer lemon, light note of butter. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Basically a richer version of the Golden, but while the aroma is attractive it’s pretty quiet. Wonderful balance in the mouth, neither too sweet or too dry for its size, very clean and flavorful. As enjoyable as the Golden, but the Native Storm is the clear winner among the three.

Sigmund (6378) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2011
500 ml bottle, from SuperBest Hjørring. ABV is 5.6%. Deep golden colour, moderate white head. Moderate but nice aroma of fruity hops, hints of orange marmalade, also notes of caramel and toffee. The flavour is medium sweet, notes of caramel and bitter orange marmalade again, plenty of grapefruity and piney hops, ending in a solid bitterness which is surprisingly sharp and distinct for a Welsh ale.
