visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2013
33cl from Meny Vollebekk. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Lightly malty aroma with hints of vegetables, fruits and caramel. Sweet and grainy with a light bitterness. Fairly light body. Finishes lightly hoppy and bitter. Easy to drink and refreshing. (Ikke akkurat helt konge, men faktisk helt grei!)

Beer5000 (5938) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pale golden body with a fast disappearing white head. Weak in aroma, hint of caramel malt. Weak in flavor, hint of caramel and fruit, little bitterness. Thin body and aggressive carbonation. Short in aftertaste. Not very interesting.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2009
0.33 L bottle from Rema 1000 Hønefoss. A shiny blond head resting on a gold colored body with good clarity. Light sweet, light buttery malt aroma. Hints of hayish hops. Taste is medium sweet, far from fresh malty, with some noticable earthy hops down below. Light, well carbonated body. Faint caramal and a slight bitterness in the finish. Mediocre.

Aroma is light moderate malty, grain, toasted, molasses, light light hoppy. Flavor is light moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration.

yngwie (16518) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle, provided by the ever helpful OleR. It’s a quite dark golden beer, crystal clear, and topped by a small white head. Almost butterscotchy aroma, toffeeish with a fruity touch. The butterscotch is surely present in the mouth too, with toffee and fruityness taking over rather quickly. Hints of bitterness. Really fizzy in the mouth, medium body and quite dry. Caramel, fruits and some bitterness in the finish. This is by far the most uninteresting of the three Hønefoss beers, a real diacetyl bomb. Had bigger diacetyl bombs though. (090818)

Palme (4180) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
0.33l bottle courtesy of Mari & Ina. This is a clear golden one with a small quickly sidesticking off-white head. Smells sweet and grainy. Some corn and a bit of wet toasted skunk. Not too good in other words. On the carbonation it’s soft to average and it has a light oily to watery mouthfeel. The taste also kinda sweet and grainy. Floral tones with metallic flower water and a light skunky background. Ends with a clear metallic aftertaste. Not the best beer by so, but still many thanks for the bottle! 25.08.2012

Rune (11341) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2009
330ml bottle from Fenaknoken in Oslo. Golden body, a bit cloudy. Patchy surface. Pale malty to the nose. Shortage of taste, just some hints of corn and grain, and hard water. Brief bitter endnotes. Lively carbonated, but still a tame and bland impression (shared with Eva, Tromsø 17.10.2009, rating no. 2700).
