Rune (7349) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2014
300ml draught at the brewpub. Lasting white layer on top of a cloudy golden body. Mostly sweet fruity nose. Fruity taste with a touch of peach and lemon added by grainy malts. Clean mid-sweet fruity end. Notes of floury elements. Crispy in the mouth. Thirst quenching (Halden 14.02.2014).

tfredvik (941) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
Very hazy yellow body with a white head. Moderate aroma of pale malts, wort, vegetables, fruits, some spicy hints and traces of butter. Not good. The moderate flavours follow the aroma with additional bread. Moderate to light sweet taste with a short, light bitter finish, also a light sourness. Thin and watery.

On tap @ the brewery. Hazy yellow body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is wheat, lemon, mild herbs and hints of grains. Taste is pale malts, floral honey tones, mild cardboard and hints of dry grass. Light body, medium to soft carbonation. Goes down fast and well, without much excitement.

yngwie (12628) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. A hazy pale golden beer topped by a small, white head. The aroma is lightly sourish, with a fruity touch and pale malts. Some fruity sourness in the flavor too, some bitterness showing up towards the else fruity finish. Medium to thin on the palate, nice carbonation. A pretty boring one, but quenching. 140214
