Rune (7356) - 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).

nilsas (982) - Bryne, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2013
En flaske med mye smell, stort trykk da korken smalt, men ikke noe bruste over. Sursøt duft med en anelse sitron. Fin gyllen farge. Mye skum som sakte forsvinner. litt syrlig smak med en anelse søt frukt smak.

Leighton (9855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2013
Cask at Sir John Oldcastle, JDW - London. Pretty average offering overall, but not bad for a Spoonies. Sweet pale malts pervade with notes of citrus and berries. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with some grapes and bready pale malts. Simple, tasty.

Foffern (1065) - Bodø, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle at home. Has a clear amber colour and medium, off-white head. Fruity aroma with dried apricot, spices, bread and some citrus. More hops in the flavour along with some paint thinner. Slick and smooth mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A decent bitter but there’s something strange in there that reminds of glue.

Pringao_Toribi (179) - Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 2, 2013
A bitter without bite, nor bitterness in the end. There are way better bitters. Avoid.
