OleR (4606) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2012

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle. Light bronze body, small white head. Nose is nuts, roasty caramel and hints of something reminiscent of manure (first!) and grains. But in a good way. :-) Taste is burnt sugar, nuts, hints of the characteristic cellar must (which I often find in Swedish micros and most particularly in Nils Oscar’s beers) and wood. Dry finish with hints of caramel. Smooth and nice mouthfeel. Pleasant, though not very challenging.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2012
courtesy of Per - clear dark reddish beer under a persistent beige foam; pretty aromatic nose of flowers and caramel; medium-bodied, quite tasty; some late earthy tartness and a low bitterness; long and charming flowery and earthy finish - very nice

berkshirejohn (4204) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2012
33cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. Deep amber in colour with a thin cream head; the aroma is amazing, a fresh almond croissant, complete with a dusting of icing sugar - sweet and malty; soft in the mouth with fruity malt flavours, that don’t reaaly live up to the aroma; and dry, herbal, bitterness to finish. I’m not entirely sure that this is an Alt, but it’s very good whatever it is.

Clear copper "Trocadero" color, medium sized lasting tan head, rather pretty and pleasing to the eye. Sweet, candy, fruity, herbal, malty, caramel, grainy, refreshing scent. Malty, metallic, caramel, bitter, herbal, hoppy, bread, grainy taste. Dry grainy finish. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness that is a bit dry and chalky. Nice, drinkable, fresh, malty, tasty.

Aroma and taste of grainy malt, raisins, fruit and hops. Bitterness is nice and a little grassy.
