ClubGonzo (4371) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle from Matkroken, Natland. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange-hued amber body with a small white head. Nose is kitchen herbs, garlic-like tones, potatoes, grains and hints of pale malts and caramel in the back. Strange. Taste is caramel, earthy leaf tones, potatoes and hints of nuts and wet grass. Light body, soft carbonation. Weird beer, but not really that bad. Just very peculiar. Well all right, kinda bad as well. :-P

Holmen1 (3022) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2013
Flaske hos Cafe Blaagaards Apotek: en lett bitter uten særlig personlighet. Ingen pregnans, og kort ettersmak. Bold and malty står det på etiketten uten at jeg skjønner hvorfor.

500 ml bottle. Almost clear, pale amber body with a small off-white head. Weak aroma with fruit, berries, plum, bred and a hint of acidity. Flavor is weak malt, harsh bitterness, metallic and slightly sour. Thin body and unpleasant harsh aftertaste. Not good at all.
