Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - APR 29, 2009
Tap @ The Rover. Dark amber with barely no head. Fruity hoppy aroma, quite weak, a bit yeasty. Very low carbonation, which is good for me, grapefruity, balanced. That’s all.

ggaughan (100) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 1, 2009
On tap at Akkurat in Stockholm. Beer poured a cloudy amber body with a huge, massive while head that gives the effect of an ice cream float. The top looks like a baseball submerged in my beer but luckily it didn’t taste like that. There was a nice citrus, hop aroma. The taste had a nice malt presence but also a refreshing citrus hop bite as well. Filling body and overall well rounded taste. My first Narke and hopefully not my last.

SaintMatty (6806) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2008
Draught (Svenska Dagar 2008 @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki) - Copper brown in colour. Fruity and hoppy aroma with some grain. A well balanced hoppy and malty taste. Pretty unremarkable but enjoyable enough.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 2, 2008
Draught (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Swedish Days 2008)
Served a bit cold, let it sit a while to warm up. Stodgy grainy aroma. Milky body. Pleasant hops and malt, well balanced. Very full-bodied. Fairly simple, but what’s there is tasty.

Joakgust (1351) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2008
Tap SB&WF-08 - Unclear copper amber colored beer with a rich dense head. Grapefruit aroma dominates with notes of , caramel and typical swedish grassy hops. Flavor is very hoppy with a smooth clean mouthfeel to it. Finish is rather bitter and dry. Could have been a little bit more balanced.

mjs (6459) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2010 (Re-rate, draught at Pikkulintu) Poured deep amber and clear. Head was dense and white. Aroma had toffee, hops and malts. Palate was medium bodied with high carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, hops, fruitiness, toffee and bitterness. Aftertaste was mildly sweet and clearly bitter. I didn’t remember this was so sweet but it didn’t bother me. Nicely balanced, solid body and clean taste. Good.
