Flaske delt med Willy etter sjøbad i 5,8C: lite aroma, men flott skum som legger en fingardin på glasset. Smaken kommer når temperaturen (i glasset) stiger litt - tørr og lett citrusaktig bitterhet med behagelig munnfylde. Mye smak for sine sølle 3,8%. Definitivt et øl jeg kan drikke igjen, men helst på en varm sommerdag.

Full fluffy head. Aroma and taste hoppy, but enough malt so it isnt hop water.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - JUL 16, 2012
Light golden colour, decent white head, fair bit of carbonation. Floral aroma, some bitterness, a touch fruity, malty and rather tasty. For 3.8% ABV, it’s rather tasty. Like it.

Weefannybaws (123) - Barrhead, SCOTLAND - JUL 14, 2012
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 (1963) - 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 (1302) - 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]
