Gr0ve (2145) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2007
330 ml bottle. Dark brown colour and slightly hazy. Medium-sized off-white head. Appley aroma with some dark malts. Sweet malts at first then even more apples. Texture is oily, but the beer isn’t particularly sweet. Fusel flavours and alcohol notes do show through. Does not much resemble a beer. It is more like a root beer or a ginger ale of some sort. Some roasted characters. Notes of raisin, but no sweetness. This is a very odd beer and definitely something that I not like.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2007
33 cl bottle. Reddish dark brown colour with a huge light brown head. Nice aroma of yeast, dried fruit, sweetness, hints of alcohol and chocolate. Flavour of port, sweet-sour maltness, spices and ends up very light but tasty.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2007 Bottle. Big-bubbled, vanishing tanned head over a hazed, reddish/brown body. Aroma is Christmas-spices, port and sugery dark dried fruits. Light vinous taste; slight malty and acidulous fruity with a sour twist. Slim body. A nice lightweighter.

Finn (4319) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2007
Bottle 0,33l. Dark brown/amber coloured. Unclear. A tanned creamy head that lasted for a while. Strong aroma of fruit and berries. A vinous.impression. Flavor in the same way with a fruity bitter finish. OK but a bit unvaried.

larsga (6255) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2007
Big brown head does not last. Dark red barely translucent body. Sweetish aroma with intense pine needle character and notes of apple and alcohol. Taste is sweet pine needles with notes of chocolate and earth. Carbonates in the mouth. Some alcohol is noticeable. Dry pine needle aftertaste. Quite good, but nothing too special. (0.33l bottle.)

Sigmund (5181) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2007
330 ml brown longneck bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. Also available in Norway at Vinmonopolet. This is the second gluten free beer on the Norwegian market, Glutaner (a pale lager) was the first one. Greenís Endeavour is called a "Double Dark Beer". ABV is 6%. Website www. glutenfreebeers.co.uk . Greenís is a trademark of Charles Cooper Ltd. The beer has a dark reddish brown colour and a thick and creamy tan head. Distinct sweetish aroma and flavour that remind me more of cheap fortified wines than of beer. Notes of raisins and spices. Some hops in the aftertaste. No masterpiece, but drinkable even for people who are not "forced to" drink it by coeliac disease.

Rune (8209) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2007
330ml bottle celebrating that the Hammers still have a premiership status! This double dark beer pours a deep mahogany red-tinged body supported by a beige, frothy head with lots of bubbles (Iím forever blowing bubbles in the air!) and some lacing. Sweet rummy aroma. Rich taste of dark berries and fruits (plums and prunes) - almost vinous. A spicy touch towards the end. Perhaps a bit too sweet and one-dimensional. Medium bodied and easy to drink (13.05.2007).

yngwie (13820) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2007 Bottle. Clear, chestnut body with a nice, dense beige head leaving lacings. Quite a lot of dried fruits almost hides the aromas of candisugar and roastiness. The flavor on the other hand isnít that good, not bad though, especially considering that it is gluten free, as thereís a bitterness that doesnít match the dried fruits and sugars, and a vinous hint. Thereís a slight note of alcohol as well, becoming more pronounced in the finish. Quite full-bodied and leaving a sticky feeling in the mouth. Some sparkling feeling as well. I think I have found a favourite for the day hopefully not coming, when I have been diagnosed with gluten intolerance. (070508)
