COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Venusian Pale Ale, a precocious little number using some of the more unusual local flora and fauna you find hanging around here in the less civilized parts of the solar system. Lemon grass, kaffir lime leaf and grapefruit peel that we pinched from rations, meld seamlessly with Venusian Spear Fungus and that funny green stuff the local chappies seem to like licking off the rocks. Zesty is the word that springs to mind and at 7.3% abv it’s bloody good for morale. Incidentally, it works just like napalm on the natives, which is handy.

yngwie (14669) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle, 65 cl, at Øltorget, Vulkan. A small, dense, off-white head forms over an orange-golden body. The aroma is spiced and peppery, some cedar like notes occur, there’s lots of citrus peel, some lemon grass and apricot. It’s a bit too bitter I think, and there’s more lemongrass than I’d like, but it also have the same spiced, peppery and cedar like things found in the aroma. Citrus peel too. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming, with a nice carbonation level. Lasting finish with lime and bitterness. Wonderful aroma in this one, pity the flavor isn’t at the same level. Still, it’s a fine brew. 140503

Rune (8822) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2014
650ml bottle, 7.5 % abv, bought at Vinmonopolet Vika. Shared with Finn and the neighbours next door. Slightly hazy, orange-gold coloued body. Stable off-white head. Fragile lacing. Herbal hops to the nose, rather perfumed. Taste of lavender and citrus laced with malty sweetness. Soft in the mouth. Unvaried. Drinkable, not a great one in my book (Tromsø 04.11.2014).
