COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pilegrim er eit lyst og friskt øl i engelsk stil. Tre sortar humle, gjæring i opne kar og godt handverk gjer Pilegrim til eit øl utanom det vanlege. Ølet er korkje pasteurisert eller filtrert og har difor gjærrestar på botnen. Bør lagrast ståande og serverast kjellerkaldt (8-10 grader C). Lat gjæra bli att på flaska. Passar til lettare kjøtretter og gjerne godt krydra mat.

tfredvik (1182) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2012
A hazy, light amber to orange body with a large, creamy, white, very long-lived head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass. A bit faint aroma with fruits (mostly citric notes), herbs, yeast and some faint pale lager-like stuff (pale malts?). Light sweet taste with a moderate bitter finish. Faint flavours with citrus and a grassy bitterness. Pleasant on the palate with a medium body, creamy and smooth mouthfeel and medium carbonation, but still a bit disappointing. I expect more exciting beers than this from the Wizard of Florø!
[75 cl bottle, from Meny Grønland, Oslo]

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle@Home. Fruity aroma, light herbal. Yellow/orange, white irregular head, fair lace. Bready, fruity, harsh herbal bitterness. Medium body, rather oily mouth feel. Interesting but unbalanced. And I don’t like the oily mouth feel.

Travlr (12994) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Draft. Hazy yellow color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of white pepper and white bread. Taste is mildly bitter, crisp and clean. Good example of the style.

Enjoyit (3474) - Vadum, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2012
Unclear orange of color with a small white head. An aroma of sweets, honey and exotic fruits. A flavor with bisquit, plastic and weak sweets.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2011
Tap@Grünerløkka brygghus. Dark, hazy yellow with a finger of white, creamy, rocky head. Loads of lacing. Looks incredible. Fresh and inviting aroma of citrus, grains, with a spicy hop character and some yeast underneath it all.. Some alcohol showing through when it warms. Slightly burnt malt flavours, grains, and peppery hops. Light fruits. Semidry, long finish. Nice and thick mouthfeel, creamy carbonation. This is pretty good, but the hop profile was perhaps a bit raw. Otherwise nice and drinkable, and almost belgian in style.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2011
Hoppy is the first taste character, this later turns fruity, followed by some bitterness in the finish. Aroma of citrus fruits and grass. It pours a copper, almost yellow colour, and boasts a white foam. (75 cl bottle)

espenra (880) - Kurland, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2011
On tap at Håndverkerstuene. Medium dark hazy orange colour with no head. Aroma is faint sour notes with hints of yeast. Some bret perhaps? Flavour is suprisingly watery and thin. Notes if yeast again as well as hay and malts. The hops is mostly non-existant. Short finish and aftertaste.

gyllenbock (4951) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2011
On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger in June 2011. My first beer from Kinn Bryggeri. Slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Very drinkable and refreshing beer, fruit, grass and with a nice bitterness in the dry finish. A pleasant suprise!

esp0r (2057) - NORWAY - MAY 9, 2011
Bottle. Golden hazy, thick white head. Smells of burned malts, caramel, spice and hints of hay. Taste of malts with much hay and some grass. Very refreshing. Hoppy bitter finish Not most exiting hops, but they do their job. Look of this beer is just amazing

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - APR 30, 2011
Hazy amber colour, with a tight foam. Aroma is dominated by malt; caramell, hay and a little hint of green beans. Flavour got a solid portion of malt to it aswell, with slight toasted malt, and a good fruityness. A soft carbonation, medium lenght, medium body and low bitternes. Summary: A refreshing beer, with a solid maltprofile.
