McTapps (3558) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 25, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep golden / light amber colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of dark hops and malt. Taste of hops, barley, malt, leaves, caramel and nuts. Bitter-medium dry finish. Nice and smooth to drink, not a bad one.

Nice one. Hops with some malt, barley and even some fruity moments. Drinkable, bit thin and watery end. Nothing special, but an ok one.

Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2013
0.5l bottle. This is a deep dark bronze colored one with a medium sized really bubbly off-white top. On the nose itís get a dry woody kinda fruity aroma with a little bit of dry caramel and a general nice sweetness. Smells absolutely decent this. Itís surprisingly bitter in the taste. Lots of dry bitterness and also a good amount of roastiness. Wood as well, like chewing on a coffee table in remember we had when it was younger. A floral bitterness rounds it off. It has some flavor this, but itís not necessary something in have to hunt down for a second go. 29.04.2013

visionthing (2582) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2013
50cl bottle from Varnaveien mineralvann. Pours clear amber with an off-white head. Lightly malty aroma with caramel and notes of fruits and hops. Hints of roasty notes too. Sweet and lightly malty and fruity with mild hoppy bitterness in the finish. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Quite well balaced and easy to drink. Light to medium body with average carbonation. A bit weak in flavour and slightly boring, but still refreshing and nice enough.
