Rune (9097) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2012
330ml bottle bought at Systembolaget Kiruna. Concrete-like, off-white head, some of it remaining all the way. Laces well. Clear, golden-brown body. Malty aroma, nuances of bread and nuts. Malty taste giving way to leafy hops and added by mild spices and a bite of almond. Bittersweet on the swallow. Feels stronger than the abv suggests. Loses some of its flavour after a while, still good drinking. Gets an extra score for the name (Tromsø, 28.05.2012).

Vignale (2421) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2012
Härlig doft av nybakt ljust bröd, aningen smörkola, hallon- jordgubbsaft. Smaken drar först åt kolaremmar och sött bröd, de smöriga tonerna och mineraler och lite blommig humle med en gräsig beska och en stramare avslutning. Finstämt men jag hade nog gissat engeskinsprierad ale snarare än altbier om jag inte visste vad jag drack.

nazzty (921) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2012
Juicy malty flavor and light fruitiness freed from acid bitterness. Definitely a beer according to my taste, recommended!

villevav (304) - FINLAND - MAY 18, 2012
Amber in colour, Nils Oscar Ctrl Alt Delete is in my opinion more of a amber ale than a German Altbier. There are some noticeable hops present in the aroma, but not in the extent found in e.g. pale ales. It is refreshing and well-suited for many occasions, but unfortunately seems to lack some character.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2012
Flaske 0,33l fra Systembolaget, Kiruna. Drukket hjemme 6 Mai 12. Gyldenbrun. Høyt bobleskum som varer ei god stund og fester seg til glasset. Lite aroma. Malt & metall. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er tung malt med innslag av frukt. Kraftig tørr bitter ettersmak.

hackobock (2114) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours clear copper/amber with a white head with small bubbles. Aroma is dominated by a malty character, hard bread, caramel, grain, some floral notes from the hops. Starts of like a sweetened hard bread, followed by some bitterness, leaves some lingering grainy notes but finish is quite watery. Overall a decent beer.

NateDawg27 (6) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012 does not count
Bottle at home. Pours a clear coppery amber colour, looks quite carbonated but doesn’t have much of a head. Aroma is quite malty and fruity. I got bready/yeasty aromas too but not as much as the fruit. Taste... winter berries. Lots of winter berries and caramel, quite malty too. Low carbonation considering it looks quite fizzy.

tkrjukoff (4167) - SWEDEN - APR 27, 2012
Bottle 33 cl, SB. pours clear copper amber with a small beige shortlived head. Aroma is malty, dry, fruity, some smoke, and bready. Flavor is fruity, very malty, dry in front some yeast and breadyness and acidy tones in the middle together with bitterness which grows stronger towards the end. Finishes dry and longlived bitter. Very nice.
