Snegurochka (389) - Tromsų, - JUL 23, 2012
Tap. Shared with Stefan @Micro Bar, Reykjavik. Hazy golden body with creamy layer on top. Beautiful lacing. Aroma: horse blanket, sour milk (kefir) and cloudberries. Tastes of grain, moss and hint of cloudberries and kefir in the finish. This reminds me of childhood in North-Norway, almost feeling a bit melancholic and definitely think this is an IPA with an Icelandic twist. Iceland and North-Norway have much in common!:-) 14.Jul.2012

mcberko (9209) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out diacetyl, grainy notes and pine. Flavour is more on the DMS side of things, with dry piney astringent hops and dry biscuity malt. The infection hurts it a bit, but it’s not offensive. Decent.

Hermod (4048) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Tap@ Drink Baar . Amber colored, thick white head. Light smoky, herbal, fruity aroma. Flavor has caramel, smoke, herbs and gooseberries. Hoppy , with a smoky-like twist. I dig. Bitter finish, lingering grapefruit.

jookos (3357) - FINLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Tap@drinkbaar. Yellow golde hazy. Leafy hops, malts, light caramels on nose. Med bodied, well bittered, nice ipaish texture. Feels a bit old, old leafy, though. Perhaps not in its prime, bit skunky messy. Liked the body though. Actually, its a clay-like bad yeastyness thatsdisturbing.
