5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle:   Pale amber, hazy, moderate white head, fairly nice lacing.   Sweet citrusy and pithy nose.   A little floral.   Sweet pithy start, a touch earthy but its minor, with a bunch of sweet citrusy white bits towards the backside.   Not bitter at all.   Well, bitter I guess by not biting.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes just as it started, citrusy, some sweetness, a bit pithy, with faint floral notes.   Really enjoyable!

Hermod (6493) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2016
355ml bottle from Alko. Poured amber, slightly unclear with a thick creamy white head. Piny, lemony, sweet tropical fruity aroma. Quite juicy stuff. Feels somewhat thin for the abv, but makes it very drinkable. Hoppy, citrusy, floral flavors with a dry, slightly woody finish.

Braudog (6379) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2013
On nitro at Uber Tap Room. Holds a big, airy head you’d expect on nitro. Drinks with a sweet, earthy and spicy character. I don’t think the nitro creaminess accentuates the right aspects at all. It gives it an almost yellow cheese aspect, maybe good for a cheese-oriented tap room, but the sharp finish is a definite downer. (#5163, 7/6/2013)
