yngwie (14090) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle. It pours a slighlty hazy, golden body under an off-white, dense head. Fruity hops, some bread and caramel in the aroma. Flavorwise it has a biscuity, malty backbone, with fruity, slightly resiny hops giving a nice bitterness. Medium to full body, rather dry. Fine, resiny bitterness in the finish. Overall, it’s a bit weak on aroma, quenching, and very British. 090726

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2009
Flaske 0,5l delt med Rune. Pen gylden farge. Lavt skum. Kraftig fruktig aroma. Veldig tiltalende. Smak av kjeks og malt. Forfriskende. Svak bitter ettersmak med aprikos i avslutningen. Passet helt fint til rømmegrøt & spekemat på St.Hansaften - men hadde nok vært enda bedre som koseøl. KI=5

Rune (8484) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2009
500ml bottle shared with Finn and as a satisfying drink to rømmegrøt (porridge made with sour cream) and cured meats. Off-white head with lots of dimples and fragile glass-lacing. Cloudy, golden-copper body. Floral hops to the nose. Taste of earthy malts in interplay with resinous hops. Dry hopped ending. Medium bodied (Midsummer Eve, Tromsø 23.06.2009).

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2009
50 cl bottle at home - bought at Vaaland, Bryne. Dark golden color, big but disappering white head. Aroma is fruity and malty, also some hops. Flavor is sweet malty, a bit fruity and fine hoppy bitterness. A bit thin, but it´s very fine to be a 3,8% beer.
