worldbeertaste (1676) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Strangely disatisfied with this one. I normally love Nogne Ø but is one didn’t dazzle me. Golden colour with some red highlights and a thin white head. Smells of yeast, flowers and honey. Tastes about he same.i did enjoy it but I didn’t love it.

ametras (483) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
500ml bottle. Blonde with a thin frothy white head. Slight haze. Flavors are cereals, wheat, bread, lemon rind, peach, orange, honey and alcohol with fruity notes. Medium body, soft carbonation, heavy and watery texture. This is the second time I’m having this, still disappointed. Weak stuff.

"i may have had a bad one, but i’ve only got one source, so for now, this is it. it was a volcanic brew...i had only half the bottle left b4 it was done. the smell also had a bit of skunk, but not enough to totally cover the coolness underneath. notes of yeast, earthy hops, and fruit. complex flavor too. i may revisit this in the future for hopes of a fresh one, but at $7.99...might be a while. this one was at least a little contaminated."

Garrold (1625) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Hazy yellow. Tight, thin white head. Lovely, yeasty, lemon sorbet aroma. Some sweet, biscuit malt. Light bubblegum and banana, too. Taste is off dry, with a bittersweet edge. Palate is soft, yeasty bread, chewy. Finishes dry, with just the right amount of yeasty tartness. Very nice.
