yngwie (13200) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2008 Bottle. Pours a clear, golden body under a small off-white head. Fruity aroma with banana and citrus dominating. Some spicy notes. Sweet, slightly caramelish flavor with some spices and wheat. Banana and citrus too. Medium body. Herbal bitterness in the finish. Quite nice and easy to drink, but far from outstanding. Hides the alcohol very well. Rating: 6-3-6-3-13-3.1. Old rating left untouched. (080905)

Bottle, 33cl. (RBNAG 07) Clear, golden beer with a low, white head. Slightly weak nose, mostly grassy, wheaty and malty. Sweet, malty flavor, some grassy flavors and a touch of bitterness. Medium body. Long finish. A nice and quaffable biere de garde. (071103)

Marsiblursi (2993) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2007
(Bottle) Pours golden. The aroma is fruity, light floral and a bit spicy. Undertones of apples, apricots, incense, dry herbs and honey. Bit yeasty and light alcohol warmth is present. The flavour is of yeast, bready malt and fruits. Citrusy and herb like undertones. Light sweet and light bitter. Sweet fruity finish with some apricots, incense, yeast and bread. Round mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Quite ok.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Nice amber pour. Hay-like aroma with a hint of mustyness. Flavor’s ok, but nothing to write home about.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - NOV 22, 2007
33cl bottle from systembolaget. Clear golden body with a nice, firm white head and visible carbonation trails. Fruity, citrusy aroma, with some harsh alcoholic notes. Medium and smooth palate with nice lively carbonation. Not too much bitterness, sweet up front leading to a dryer and slightly unpleasant alcoholic finish. Mild hops. I was expecting a lot more from this, but it turned out to be a fruitier and slightly less harsh version of a strong swedish lager; better made for sure, but the hefeweizen went much better with thanksgiving dinner than this did.

Brouwser (119) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 18, 2007
Bière dorée plutôt foncée, presque de teinte ambrée. Très limpide. Au service, le col est discrèt et disparait en peu de temps. L’effervescence est faible. L’arôme est d’abord sucré, fruité, mielleux, un peu floral. Au goût, on note les fruits blans délicats et liquoreux : poire, raisins verts, lichis. On apperçoit les céréales derrière un goût syrupeux de levures et de céréales. Une bière qui a quand même beaucoup de profondeur malgré ses apparences communes. L’arrière-goût est celui de fruits blancs confits. Elle est ronde en bouche, peut-être syrupeuse. J’y reviendrai certainement!

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2007
Pale straw/golden body, one finger white head. Sweetish aroma of pale malts with whiffs of fruit and raw, earthy hops. Quite sweet-flavored; sugery malts, herbs and sharp bittering hops. Medium body. Hoppy finish. (Bottle @ RBNAG’07)

TET (1573) - FINLAND - NOV 10, 2007
Deep honey-yellow colour and white light head. Light malty aroma is slightly better than typical lager-aroma. Flavour is slightly sweet and there is medium hoppiness. Quite fresh and pleasant beer, but this is not luxurious at any sector.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2007
Medium offwhite coarseish head. Golden body. Rubbery mealy aroma. Dry rubbery chalky resiny taste. Kind of flat. Quite boring. (0.33l bottle at RBNAG’07.)
