Rune (7346) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
330ml bottle, L-292/13, ordered from Vinmonopolet bestillingsutvalget, picked up at the Langnes store. Clear golden-brown body, very hazy last pour with sediments. Off-white head, loose glass-lacing. Mild fruity aroma, mandarin and grapefruit, semi-dry. Moderate taste profile containing juicy malts with a twist of herbal hops. Bittersweet endnotes. Medium bodied. Quite smooth and clean in the mouth. Fair enough (TromsÝ 11.04.2014).

Bottle. It takes a lot of nerve to claim ALWAYS FRESH on the bottle. This was not very fresh. Unfiltered with lots of residue. Hazy brsss, lively carbonation. Dust, flowers, sweet caramel malt. A bit yeasty. Dull. I wonder why they bother to import this. I assume is sounded like a good idea on a sunny day in Greece.

Palme (2988) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2014
0.33l bottle. This is a really cloudy orange almost honey looking one, filled with a ton of floaters swirling in the body and a medium sized to small just off white top thatís leaving some small lacings down the sides of the glass. What to say about the aroma? Well, itís not to hoppy. More yeast melony with a fruitiness, light spicy tones and a little bit of herbal banana. Strange and not completely mine thing. It feels light oily in the mouth and it has a below average carbonation level. Have to admit that I donít really fancy the way this tastes either. Itís straight from the fridge, but it still tastes like the bottle has been standing open in room temperature for several days. Eastery yeasty flavors, peppery and just old in the taste. Itís definitely not a bad bottle, itís just not completely mine kind of beer this. 21.12.2013

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Netshop
Rusty red hazy, beige head. Smells of ripe fruits, malts, faint hops. Moderate sweet, nice malts, some fruity notes. Moderate bitter finish, faint hops. Quite ok

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. An almost clear one, some microfloaties, and golden in color. An off-white finger thick head sits on top. Candy and earthy hints on the nose. The flavor has overripe fruits, some sweetness and malty hints. Medium body, with a nice carbonation and itís quite dry. A decent bitterness in the end. Sort of nice, but too boring for my liking. Would be sort of interesting to have the beers from this brewery fresh. 140110

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2013
Bottle. A Greek craft beer? Interesting. Pours a clear amber body with a small off-white head. Nose is banana esters, fruity Belgian yeast, caramel and hints of grains. Taste is sweet Belgian yeast, red fruits, raisins and hints of caramel and grains. Medium body and carbonation. Boring but decent enough.
