POLK (2155) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2014
Ok flagship beer but far too much sea spray. Insanely carbonation. Fine hops, slightly bitter

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2014
(bottle conditioned) Hazy, golden colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Juicy (cara-)malty aroma with notes of biscuits, backed by mildly citric and zesty hops. Mildly bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly biscuity malty taste with hints of caramel, accompanied by grapefruity hops. Lingering into the quite rounded malty and hoppy finish. 19.IV.14

McTapps (3627) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a clear golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hay and hops. Taste of mild hops, barley, light amlt, wheat, bread and caramel. Bitter-dry finish with some light watery touch. Drinkable.

Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 24, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Langnes. Drukket i Skibotn 16 Mar 14. Gyldenbrun. Litt uklar. Pent skum som varer en god stund og etterlater seg kniplingslacing. Aromaen er aprikos & litt blomster. Smaken litt syrlig frukt med underliggende maltpreg. Avslutter tørt. Moreish.

MichaelAwesome (3627) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - APR 23, 2014
Nice ohne with its hoppy moments and some grass. Drinkable, quaffy, some citrus in the back. Bit above average.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 6, 2014
500ml bottle conditioned, from Vinmonopolet Tromsø Langnes. Crystal clear amber coloured body. Hazy last pour. Frothy white head, laces well. Smell of leafy hops and caramel malts. Well blended flavours of mid-sweet malts, grapefruits and resin. Prolonged, dry malt bitter ending. Medium bodied. Fresh and nice to drink (Tromsø 05.04.2014).
