First of all let me say wow! From a 11.2 FL.OZ bottle. poured a hazy golden yellow and the med white head disapates fast. I smell light citrus, malt, flowers, and baked white bread. I taste all of the same with some sweet caramel and light citrus. Wonderful!

Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2014
Flaske 550ml fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Sentrum. Gyldenbrun. Høyt luftig skum som daler sakte. Kniplingslacing. God aroma av pepper & ingefær. Smaken har det samme sammensatte krydderpreget. 0 kullsyre. Bra - men blir litt endimensjonal. Tungdrikkelig etter hvert.

Bottle: Pours slightly hazed gold with a tall, off-white head. Aroma of sweet fruit, yeast. Flavour is pils, banana, grass...a bit of peppery spice... Very smooth, grassy bittering. Very good.

spacecube (758) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
550ml bottle, pours light golden brown wth lively carbonation and a small white head. Aroma is distinct with belgian style yeast, spice, dill & coriander, thick caramel malt and hoppy character from the Sorachi Ace. Palate is rich and full for a lager. This is quite complex and unusual, and pleasant. Unusual but not amazing.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is caramel, walnuts, pale malts and hints of red fruits and straw. Taste is nutty caramel tones, walnuts in particular, hints of maize, red berries and hints of syrup. Medium body and carbonation. Pleasant stuff.

Torrefacto (501) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 14, 2014
Color ámbar pálido limpio y espuma blanca ligera aunque duradera. Aromas círtricos y florales, ligero toque de fruta verde. Cuerpo medio, algo maltoso, el sabor es una mezcla cítrica y afrutada, nuevamente, de fruta aún no madura. En este sentido, recuerda algo a una saison Se nota bastante el alcohol. Muy rica.

Foffern (1150) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a slightly cloudy dark straw colour with a medium, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of citrus, Belgian yeast, spices and banana. The flavour is similar but with tones of hay, sweet malt, cloudberries and hops. Slick mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. An interesting, spicy and fresh pale lager. A little odd taste though.

yngwie (13127) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 30, 2014
Bottle. A hazy golden beer with a dense finger thick off-white head leaving curtains. Rather meaty aroma, with banana, cloves, caramel, some alcohol and a piney touch. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Sort of warming, which surprises me considering the alcohol level. Meaty flavor too, with the same banana, cloves, caramel and piney cones found in the aroma. Lasting finish. Well, it’s not bad in any way, but it’s too meaty for me. 140430
