lusikka (6976) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
500 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour with a large white head which collapses quickly. Aroma of toffee and honey with some mild hops. Flavour of raw hops, some citrus and caramel. Quite long, dry and bitter finish. I’d say this is more of a Golden Ale.

abemorsten (3086) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2011

Maris (1121) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2011
From a 500ml bottle on 7/4/2011. Pours golden with a decent head. Doesn’t have much of an aroma, but what’s there is a strange combo of grass, rice and paint. The taste is also quite unusual. There is some maltiness up front but it’s dominated by a sour, salty, citric hop bitterness, which keeps on lingering. The palate is quite thin. Distinctive but not overly enjoyable.

500ml bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi

Pours orange with a white head. Aroma has hints of spices and orange fruit. Taste is bitter and has hints of fruits. Finish is quite smooth. Quite easy to drink.

TET (2006) - FINLAND - MAR 19, 2011
Copper brown beer with a medium and blond head. Aroma is malty, toffee, some red berries, rasberries and light hoppyness with fruits. Taste is also malty like aroma, biscuits, toffee, some lemon, medium bitterness and dry taste. Quite light to drink, but still lots of taste, medium carbonation, quite nice. Dry and malty beer, more aromatic hops would be needed to make this beer more aromatic and fresh.

50cl bottle. Golden color with a white head, nice lacing. Biscuit and fruit in aroma, crisp as well. Flavor is malty, very citric hoppy, quite bitter. Finish is bitter hops. Enjoyable, fresh ale. Thumbs up!

ClubGonzo (4562) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2011
Bottle from Vaaland Spesialbutikken, Bryne. Light orange body, medium off-white head. Nose is extremely bland, with only a few tiny caramel hints and not much else. Taste is even more disappointing: wishy-washy caramel ESB bland bullshit. Jesus, how boring can you get. Watery palate. Kinda "blah".
