A lovely golden pale ale, from the Orkney Islands of Scotland. Floral on the nose; Citrus on the palate, with a dry, yet bitter after-taste. Very nice indeed.

TheCametron (1777) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 8, 2012
Bottle. Very pale, clear golden with a foamy white head. Light floral caramel nose. Flavour is also light but not bad. Slightly carbonated with a very dry finish. Watery but quite nice.

tfredvik (1098) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2012
This beer reminds me of my 1.5 year old son: he’s called Ravn, but his hair is blond instead of raven black. The Raven Ale isn’t black either, it pours a clear medium golden body with an amber tint. The head is off-white, slightly creamy, long-lived and leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma is a bit faint, and not very interesting. Pale malts, faint fruits, a spicy touch and traces of yeast. Light sweet taste with a moderate bitter finish. It’s a very crisp and spicy bitterness that lingers on, without really being that bitter. The flavours are also rather faint, with caramel, spices, fruits (lemon) and grass. Light body and a watery to dry texture. There’s nothing wrong with the beer, it’s just too plain and boring.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 6 months before BB date, from Jacobs på Holtet, Oslo]

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2012
A golden ale, with a white head. A floral aroma, probably from the hops, not much malts at all. Moderate bitterness to the taste, bits of malts as well. I thought this was pretty good!
