larsga (6335) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
Medium white head shrinks quite rapidly with a hissing sound. Hazy orange body with strong carbonation. Earthy fruity candy aroma with herbal wood notes. Dry-sweet-acidic mealy earthy vinegary taste. Thin body. Fizzy, oily mouthfeel. Undrinkable. Infected. (0.5l bottle, from Meny Oslo City. Batch 0089. Given that four out of four beers from Larvik have been infected I suspect they may not need that fourth digit in the batch number.)

Hazy gold. Lots of fruit, rather sweet. Apricots, lemons, but it is a bit off. Noe elegance, this is not good enough given today’s competition.

ClubGonzo (4280) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a hazy light orange body with a tiny white head. Nose is sweet tropical fruit cocktail, grains, honey, straw and hints of sulfur and white bubble gum. Taste is sour grainy notes, yeast, bubble gum, hints of honey and faint hay. Light to medium body, soft to insignificant carbonation. A brew befitting of its name; dedicated to a Norwegian nobleman who spent a lot of his time kickin´it in Copenhagen while someone else did his dirty work back in Norway during the colonial times. Bet he was crap at brewing as well.

Palme (3606) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2014
0.5l bottle from #0089. This one pours a cloudy orangey looking body under a small really bubbly bright white and slowly sidesticking head. It has a sweet juicy fruity melon nose. Lots of sweetness, sugary with canned peaches and cardboard. Not extreme in any direction but quite sweet. It doesn’t taste all that good. It’s really dry and grainy. Like drinking straw water. It’s as good as flat on the carbonation and it has a thin gliding oily feeling in the mouth. Bah, this really didn’t want taste all that good - or ANY good for that matter. I was in the mood for a late pale ale so I took this, but this doesn’t taste like a pale ale at all. More like a grain soup with thin watery fruits and a slightly acidic hint in the background. Have experienced this a lot in the beers from this brewer. Still waiting for that one beer I actually like.. Did not finish the bottle. Or the glass for that matter. 15.04.2014
