yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. An unclear, dark golden beer with a dense, white fingerthick head. The aroma has lots of Fox fruit caramel, really lots of it, with hints of pale malts. The same goes for the flavor, the Fox is all over, more or less hiding everything else, both malts and bitterness. That goes for the finish too. Full to medium body and a nice carbonation level. Well, this is too much of a good thing. Way too much. 140501

Palme (3365) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2013
On tap @ Grunerløkka Brygghus. Served in a long thin glass. Looks OK with a light orangy/golden blurry body under a nice medium sized creamy surely lasting and lacing white top. Not to extreme on there nose but it has a nice fruity sweetness. Lemongrass? Well, I’m having a hard time identifying it initially. It’s there in tho taste though! Not sticking it’s head to much out but it’s there subtle creamy in there background. Above average on there carbonation this and it feels soft light oily in the mouth. A bit of birch and piney hops, I get a near earthy bitterness and it’s leaving quite a mouthdrying feeling in my mouth. A nice citrus grape bitterness towards the finish. Unless I’m mistaking this is my second lemongrass beer, and again, I don’t think it has an enormous effect on either the taste or aroma. At least it’s only peanuts compared to using it correctly in food. But by all means, it’s a good IPA nonetheless. 18.10.2013
