Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2016
500 ml bottle, from Matkroken Stokka. ABV is 4%. Deep golden to copper colour, moderate to low head, nice lacing. Nice fruity aroma, also hints of toffee. Tingling fruity and herbal hops in the flavour, with decent malts for 4% beer, hints of toffee. Astonishingly good - would buy again, if the brewery were not out of business.

Holmen2 (2873) - NORWAY - MAR 26, 2014
Clear golden, short white head. Aroma of lime lemonade. Hops balanced by crystal malt in taste. Hints of vanilla/oak. Lime lemonade in aftertaste, but with some more English hop complexity.

McNeillR (2227) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 1, 2014
Dark golden clear body. Decent lacing from a white capped of head. Spritzy dycatelly nose. Plain maltiness and not much of else. Supposed to be a "hoppy bitter" but I had to wash it down with a soda and lime to make sure my taste buds still worked. Soft watery mouthfeel. Grating light bitterness on the finish. Buttery linger. Not horrific but a waste of time.

Pretty middle of the road in all areas. Some malt, a bit of sweetness, mild bitterness, hops get a little lost. Not unpleasant but I wouldn’t rush to have this again.

Bottle. It’s an unclear, golden beer topped by a small, off-white head. Toffee, grassy hops and a faint cheesy touch in the aroma. Quite pleasant actually. There’s some bitterness in the flavor, with the same toffee-ish maltyness and grassy hoppyness found in the nose. Medium body, dryish on the palate. Some bitterness towards the end. A decent but pretty boring beer, just like most British bitters. 130607

RuneStumo (2575) - Haugesund, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2013
23.12.2013. 0,5l Bottle. Spesialbutikken Vaaland, Bryne. Golden colour with white head. Aroma is first kind of grassy with notes of flowers. Fresh and aromatic hoppy flavours. Medium to weak body. Lacks a little on the malt. Aftertaste is also kind of thin. But its bitter and fresh.

ERB92 (646) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2013
Caramel, hay, and fruits in the aroma. Amber with small white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Bitter and dry finish. Overall a nice bitter, really enjoyable.
