3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pretty much a light, fruit, very easy going blonde. Nice enough and pairs well with food (had it at Cantina and went well with the Spanish tappiste stuff)

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
(bottle) Poured a cloudy amber with little white head. Aroma was pleasant - lychee, honey, faint perfume. Medium bodied, well carbonated. The flavour had some rather harsh notes too it, although there was some nice honey and peppery spice too. Quite drinkable, but not great; worked well with spicy food.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle, as Rosita Original, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. ABV is 5.5%. Imported to Norway by Moestue Grape Selections AS. According to the Norwegian rear label, this is a spontaneously fermented ale (not sure if that is entirely true), with a secondary fermentation in the bottle. Hazy golden colour, large to low white head, decent lacing. Strong sweetish and "unfresh" aroma, distinct notes of stale marmalade and decaying / rotting fruits. The flavour is somewhat better than the aroma, wheaty and fairly refreshing character with hints of citrus. Won’t buy again though.

Bottle 330ml from King&Godfree. Nice beer, with malty and yeasty flavours. Aromas of nuts, caramel, grain, and leaves. Taste is sweet, with sour notes, dry finish, and average length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Dark yellow, cloudy, with a thin head.

Honey pale colour beer. Creamed head that dissapears in a few seconds. Nice aroma and taste but not fine at all.
Palate long but not completely equilibrated.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle purchased at Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo and shared with Finn back home. Unclear yellow, fragile lace from a small white head. Dusty hops to the nose. Fruity taste with malted wheat added by mild spices. Very much on the sweet side. Has not got so much to offer, passable, though (Tromsø, 13.10.2011).

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Kaffeeröstiger Geruch, vermengt mit Preiselbeere. Antrunk stark röstig, malzig. Mitte röstmalzig, aber verwässert. Abgang weiterhin röstig, leider dünn, leicht süßlich. Trotzdem noch passabel.
