Bottle from ICA Alta Amfi. Smells of citrus and grapefruit, well, it smells of hops. Apperance is slightly amber, somewhat better looking than industrial pilsners. Great taste, very hoppy, it is bitter and slightly salty taste as well. Medium body, average carbonation and a bitter finish lasting a while. I think this is a very good beer, great session beer, and maybe the best low abv beer in Norway, goes great with food, and a standout beer in the norwegian supermarkets.

mansquito (3346) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Supermarket in Oslo, bottle: Pours a pale copper with a whitish head. Aroma and taste are weakly hoppy and weakly malty. This is the kind of beer that most people wouldn’t bat an eyelash at in the US, and I doubt they do in Norway either.

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2012
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of apricots, orange and hints of caramel. Malty, fruity taste with orange, apricots, toast, marmalade and a generous citric bitterness in a dry, well balanced finish. Medium body, quite dry. Nice one.

Tsk_man (16) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle/Can@Various locations. This is a very good pale ale for being so low in alcohol. The head is not too impressive, neither are the aroma. The colour is a light yellow. The beers best selling point is the taste, which is hoppy, well-balanced and with a hint of citrus. Be aware that this beer does not store well and should be consumed when fresh.

harrisoni (13591) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle from GBBF 2012. One of the great things about GBBF is that you get to drink beers that you wouldn’t normally. Come armed with £100 and buy as many bottles of foreign muck as possible. Clear amber with thick cream head. Leafy piney hoppy aroma. Grapefruit on aroma too. Oooh now there is something in the flavour that isn’t quite right. Piney bitter hops yes. It’s not quite puke, but it’s something cereally and not quite right. sago or tapioca that kind of thing you had boiled as a child at school that makes me shake in my boots. Hops are good, body and malts leave something to be desired.

rlgk (10268) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2012
Bottle, from a trade with Cunningham. Clear golden/amber beer with a small offwhite head. Hoppy milky aroma, perfume, grass, toffee, pine needles, grapefruit notes, roasted, some caramel. Hoppy fruity flavor, grassy, metallic, some dill. A few flaws, I do prefer the aroma from this beer. Decent though, with a hoppy metallic finish.

ElDesmadre (1524) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle from a trade with Palme. Amber with a rather small head. American hops full-on: citrus, peach, floral, grassy and earthy, some resin. Also some toasted malt detectable. Very pleasant aroma. Sharp and dry taste, refreshing and made for fast drinking. Strong, grassy-earthy bitterness, intense on the palate because of the light maltiness. Somewhat like a US-ale version of a German pils, at least I felt it that way. Unfortunately for this kind of beer the carbonation was rather low. Still a good beer though, bordering on very good.

NosirIwont (1954) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a small white head. Sweet, citrusy hop aroma with malty and wooden notes in the back. Flavour is sweetish, fruity, bitter and hoppy, and feels a bit watery. Malt in the background, which becomes more outspoken as it warms, and takes on a caramel note. Further warming reveals a metallic note and slight notes of cardboard. Dry, bitter finish, the bitterness being a wee bit unpleasant. Lingering light alcohol burn, which is kind of odd considering the alcohol %. Overall okay, but nothing special and with a few minor flaws. 28.07.12.

Foffern (1190) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber colour with a medium frothy off-white head. A bit carbonated. Fruity aroma with grapefruit, fruity hops, grains and tropical fruit. Fruity hops also in the flavour along with wood and some berry sourness, and ends a bit dry. Slick mouthfeel. Bitterness = medium+. Both a tasteful and aromatic beer, but maybe too much focus on the hops.
