Flot klar øl, flot Hvidt skum, begrænsede 5,6%, men en dejlig øl når man er tørstig. Sød eftersmag. Godt øl fra det sorte får i det Danske Kongerige! Free Føroyar!!!

tfredvik (1416) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2015
Crystal clear medium amber body with a small, off-white head of average life-time. Malty and moderate aroma of pale malts, grain, caramel and light hops. Moderate flavour that follows the aroma, with additional fruits. Light to moderate sweet and light bitter taste. Fairly light-bodied, dry and with a moderate carbonation. This beer is almost as boring as this rating.
[33 cl bottle shared with josteirk at Steenbo the Summer House, from Vinoble, Frederikshav, Jylland]

Milter (322) - Nyborg, DENMARK - APR 13, 2015
Færøernes øl nr. 1. Meget dejlig og frisk. Flot farve og skum. Spændende etiket.

Gylo (248) - Lublin, POLAND - APR 2, 2015
Bardzo ładna głęboka bursztynowa barwa i nie aż taka ciemna jak mogłaby sugerować etykieta. Piany praktycznie w ogóle. Aromat i smak typowo lagerowe, ale dosyć przyjemne w smaku.

3fourths (8598) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2015
From draft at Hvonn Brasserie in Torshavn. Clear dull amber body with a thin white head. Unpleasant buttery diacetyl and toffee malt aroma with notes of calcium and granite. Medium-light body with some chewy malt sugars, lightly bitter and acidic with a quick finish. Simple and dull and faulty.

Sibarh (153) - Białystok, POLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Kolor - jasnobrązowy, klarowny. Piana - drobna, wysoka, średniotrwała. Zapach - niewyczuwalny. Smak - lekko słodowy z bardzo delikatną nutą chlebowo-karmelową, lekki chmiel, leciutko słodkie, średnia goryczka. Delikatne, nijakie w smaku piwo.

Troll (28) - DENMARK - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle @ home: Aroma: A bit sour fruits, grain. Apperance: Pours dark orange/amber, quick small light head. Taste: Grains, quite carbonated, some lingering bitter finish. Overall: Just a tiny bit more interesting than plain pilsner - but fine for food.

bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2015
33cl bottle from Maruhn, shared in Strasbourg. Sirupy copper pour. Cooked caramels in the nose, laden and honeylike. Very decent hop bitters welded into cardboard malts, honey, Kleister, pollen. Lingering bitterness. Weird Märzen from the Faroe Islands. There are much worse country ticks and a worldwide flock of black sheep beers, it appears...
