tfredvik (1102) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2012
Hazy, medium golden body with a small, frothy, white head that is quite short-lived and leaves a decent amount of lacing on my plastic cup(!). I find rating aroma outdoors extremely difficult, but it would be impolite to go indoors and leave my BBQ guests in the garden, so I remain seated and try to catch some scents from the before mentioned plastic cup, while the wind blows and the fumes from the grill try to trick my nose. The aroma is moderate to light (but then again, the lack of intensity might be due to outdoor rating), with pale malts, fruits and yeast. Moderate to light sweet taste with some acidity and a moderate bitter finish. The flavours are far more complex than the aroma, confirming that I shouldn’t be allowed to judge the aroma outdoors: Fruits (with faint banana), spices, yeast, perfume, herbs, resin, honey and some alcohol in the form of white wine notes. The finish is quite alcoholic, but it still feels fairly well integrated. Medium body, dry to oily texture, soft carbonation. A good one!
[75 cl bottle, shared with Rikke, Tor, Gunnvor, Anders and the Missus, enjoyed after the palate has taken some serious beating by several drinks and various BBQ dishes]

Came to Norway to try this one. Fliptop. Hazy golden yellow color, large white head. Aroma of barnyard straw and citrus with light spice. Taste is mildly funky hay, lemonpeel, spice, rising white bread dough. Nice.

A good blond beer from France. The colour is blond and light gold, with a very nice big white head. You really whant to taste it. Smell as hops and orange. First taste, simple beer with hops and orange taste. Aftertaste you will feel the complexity of the beer.

Flaske 0,75l. Gave fra Rune. Lys gylden. Litt uklar. Høyt luftig skum som varer ei stund. og fester seg til glasset. God krydderaroma. Smaken er syrlig frukt med pepper. Frisk syrlig bitter ettersmak med en tørr avslutning.

CapFlu (4501) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2012
(75cl bottle) Purchased at Liquor Plus Douglas. Pours a lofty white creamy head atop hugely carbonated, red body. Nose of tart berries and tin. Very tonic, some good malt base - somewhat sour and yeasty finish. Okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPod; and powered by RateBeer.com, the world’s largest and most accurate beer database.
