Not so bad, one of the better bitters i’ve had recently on random pub visits. Tasted a little less usual, somewhat like a wheat beer. Poured dark though. Palate was weak, however.

Idiosynkrasie (4099) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear dark amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way kasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity hoppy aroma has notes of Williams Christ pear, preserved yellow apple, a grainy touch. Taste is minimally sweet malty, hints of fruit, cautious herbal hoppy overtones, in the finish dry, husky.

ClubGonzo (4237) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a deep coppery red-amber body with a small white head. Nose is caramel, red berries, hints of pepper and herbs. OK, but maybe a tad bit faint. Taste is caramel, grains, hints of burnt sugar and grass. Slightly watery palate but still OK and quite quaffable. Pretty smooth, without ever being impressive in any way.

SperkeleForce (613) - FINLAND - MAY 3, 2013
On tap in Blackdoor. First taste a little like lager, weird. After a little while getting better with nice notes of malt and hops. Some good notes of spices.

lusikka (6559) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2013
Draught @ Naamat, Tampere.
Pours a cloudy dark brown and creamy head. Aroma of grass, gooseberries and some sour notes. Flavour of harsh grainy malts, gooseberries, grassy hops and sour berries. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a harsh, bitter, sour finish. The sour notes here are rather off-putting.

Hermod (3459) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 26, 2013
50cl bottle, BBE 23.10.13. Poured copper color with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma is light spicy, yeasty with citrus, biscuit and bready notes. Flavor has the same spicyness, biscuit and caramel, light hoppyness. Light bodied, short light bitter finish. Refreshing, easy, decent bitter.
