Gr0ve (2173) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2007
500 ml bottle. Rich golden reddish colour with a slight haze. Tall white creamy head. Lightly acidic apricot aroma. Light, almost watery, texture. Light hop bitterness, but the finish is really drying and leaves the mouth very dry. The beginning is really nice, but finishes rather dull.

Sigmund (5557) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2007
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. Bottle conditioned. ABV is 5.3%. Golden colour, hazy. Large and lasting off-white head. Nice hoppy / citrussy aroma. The flavour is also distinctly hoppy throughout, but there is also a noticeable presence of alcohol - in a blind test I would have guessed that the beer was somewhat stronger than 5.3%. There’s a moderate sweetness in the background. Moreish.
