tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2008
75 cl bottle at Hopheads´ fourth tasting - in my garage. Bought at Ølkonsortiet, Aalborg. Light amber color with just a bit hazyness, fine off-white head. Aroma is hoppy and kind of fruity. Flavor is sweet and floral hoppy, with hints of perfume. Dry finish in this APA-like beer.

On Draught, De Wildeman, Amsterdam. Orangey yellow with a thin white head. Plenty of amarillo hop lurking in the nose with some caramel malt. Thickish mouth feel. Nice citrus flavours and pretty darn good.

Borresteijn (5138) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2008
33cl Bottle bought at the brewery. Hazy golden/orange colour, creamy white head. Aroma of hops, resin and malts. Flavour is of American hops, resin and slightly malty. A bit less thin than de Molen Engels. Spicy bitter finish. A bit thin and dry mouthfeel. Very nice low ABV beer though.

Oakes (13147) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
Hazy tan colour. Herbal, floral hops with lots of spicy, dusty yeast notes. Dry, bitter, a little footy in the yeast character.

harrisoni (14509) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 Angry fist of Santa tasting at Chris o’s. Gold, slight haze. Thin off white head. Nice hop aroma. It’s a kick in the head with cat’s pee. From Harry. Really cool hop on the end. That gets better as it goes. 4/5 Re-rate at Churchill Tavern, Ramsgate. One of the best cask conditioned beers I ’ve had. The hops jumped out at you.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2008
Bottle. At Chris_O’s September 2008 DenCan bash. I think I got the very bottom of the bottle - murky orange with plenty of floaties and a solid creamy-fizzy off-white head. Huge funky wave of pungent acidic hops - lovely! - "like being punched in the head with cat piss" was my exact quote. There was actual malt sweetness in the taste to balance it, the actual hop flavour was almost disappointing - still there, but not as pronounced - grassy and tart in the long finish. Slick, somewhat acid on the tongue, nice carbonation ... this was really unexpected from a Netherlands beer; unbalanced but really welcome, particularly the aroma.

ekstedt (5711) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2011 Bottle (75 cl) from Ølbutikken, Copehagen, Denmark. Hazy amber medium off-white head. Fruity and berryish aroma with some odd manure notes. Light in body, medium carbonation. Good balance, medium to low bitterness, dry.

Gar4016 (24) - , Iowa, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Golden head, a bit of lacing resides. Dark orange amber color. Smells like sweet grapefruit, grass, great dry hopping on this one. Tastes like bitter hops, yeast, citirus grassy. Maybe a bad bottle but completly overwelms my palate with soap taste at the end that lingers for several minutes. Even if the hops causing this tasted a little better, I would still balance it out with more malt. Will try this again, just to make sure I didn’t get a poor example of this beer.

Orange colour with a small white head. Malty, sweet aroma with yeasty and hoppy notes. Hoppy fruity flavor with a light malty sweet note.
