Sigmund (4956) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2012
Shared 500 ml bottle at local tasting. ABV is 4.5%. Dark amber to red colour, moderate off-white head. Pleasant aroma of fruity and piney American hops, also notes of woodwork and lightly roasted malts. The flavour is not too sweet and not too dry, moderately roasted malts dominate, but fruity and piney American hops are also present. Roasty and dry aftertaste.

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2014
A tall lacing tanned top, on a deep reddish-amber body. Pleasant aroma of red berries and biscuity malts. Light to medium full. Clean and fresh sourish-bready malt flavor. A good dose of herbal and earthy bittering hops here. Mouth-drying herbal-bitter finish. Very likeable this one, with its fresh malty sourness. [0.5 l bottle purchased at Meny Oslo City]

Flaske 0,5l spandert av Rune og delt under samling hos ham 6 Feb 14. Mørk amber. Litt uklar. Mye skum. Tett lacing. God aroma av aprikos. Smaken er preget av mandler med innslag av malt & litt frukt. God fruktig ettersmak.

Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a deep slightly hazy amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is nuts, nougat, peachy red fruit tones and hints of grains and herbs. Taste is bitter herbs, nutty grain tones and hints of chocolate, grapefruit and mild red berries. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. A quite straightforward yet balanced and tasty amber ale from Klostergården.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2014
0.5l bottle from #177. Looks quite good in the glass with a deep blurry really dark amber red body under a medium sized light bubbly but lasting beige head. On the nose I get a nice sweet caramel and fruit sweetness. Red apples with a faint darkness in the back. It’s father fruitiness that dominates this and I’m liking it. It has a thin oily feeling in the mouth while it’s soft on the bubbles. Really soft. Nothing to say on the flavors here. Fruity caramel with a good hoppy kick. Red berries and traces of something slightly roasted before its giving me licorice. Dried licorice. Lots of flavor and IMO a really successful amber. It’s really lightdrinkable this. I’m so impressed that I can honestly say that this is something I want to have again. Not often that happens in these kinds of beers. 29.03.2014

visionthing (2617) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2014
50cl bottle from Meny Bjølsen, Oslo. Pours hazy dark amber with a tan head. Medium malty aroma with some roasty notes, quite strong hop presence with fruity, citrusy and lightly piney notes. Caramel, herbs and just a hint of smoke. Moderate to medium sweet with a fairly dry and bitter finish with note of citrus. Nice, flavourfull and sessionable.
