Wischylini's rating

Wischylini (172) - Grimstad, - NOV 16, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow, with a formidable, fluffy white head that stays for a long time and leaves a nice lacing. The aromas on the nose are lively and fruity, the most prominent notes being grapefruits and hops. The aroma in the mouth is mostly dominated by hops, with a spicy tinge and some pale malts, and a slightly metallica aroma too. The taste is very bitter, and the palate is allover average and anonymous. The Humlesus has an intriguing fruity aroma, but the overall taste is simply too bitter for my taste.

Barwa ciemnozlota, srednia, drobnopecherzykowa piana, bardzo ladny lacing. Aromat swiezy, tropikalnych owocow. Smak lekki z wyczuwalnymi cytrusami, owocami tropikalnymi, niska ale wyczuwalna goryczka. Bardzo pijalne i sesyjne.

A very hooped beer, and a bit overhooped for my style. The beer is well made, but the hops makes it a bit unbalanced

500ml bottle (Zmogsala2015, Vilnius)
Nice citrussy hop aroma. Slightly watery palate, but the hops are very bitter, and it doesn’t seem weak. Considering the strength, I’d almost say it was trying to be full. Finish has plenty of malty grains. Nice quaffable brew.

25 cl from tap@Oslo Bar@approx 7 degrees C. Pours a hazy golden/yellow color with a generous white head with good retention. Clear, fresh citrussy hop aoma. Very well balanced flavour of plenty of American citrus fresh hops and a slightly sweet maltiness. Long lasting aftertaste pleasantly bitter without becoming like biting grapefruitpips. The right carbonation and a slightly creamy palate add to a very favourable impression of this brew.

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle from...Norway. Probably Bergen airport. Dulled blonde narrowly capped with white. Rather beautiful aroma of lychee-dripped honeycomb, zested lime and humid green stems. Possibly a Whiff of Burton if you inhale deeper, certainly CE. Cask softness with a punchy sting of grapefruit and lemon zest mellowed with dunked English biscuit. A little rustic around the edges with detritus aplenty. Bonus point. Creamy and stewed hop afters. Could be Mallinsons. Very fine work indeed.

Green-brownish almost muddy appearance, with lots of foamy head that lasts for a while. Quite bitter and somewhat sour with fruity notes.

olsvammel (4121) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle at a big tasting (Nördprovning 2015). Hoppy smell with grass and herbs. Similar taste, light hoppy. Not overly fresh but drinkable.
