EchoShine (32) - Athens, - DEC 19, 2012
Popped off the cap and picked up some green grass notes that surprised me at first, but they quickly faded into some funk barnyard notes. Then I start looking up to the light .... seeing a thin cloud with in the body that feels thin on the palate because of some candy sweetness. Appearance is a bit mind boggling to the taste so extra points for that. Otherwise if filtered it may look and smell a bit like a wine cooler (ducks) Just a bit too candy sweet. thinnly sticky. dry finish. The unfiltered is nice and the funk makes up for any lameness. As it warms up to the ending nice little sips of complexity between malts and hops taking over the sweet.

floydslip (160) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Hazy light amber beer with a medium foamy white head that has pretty good retention. Somewhat mild nose of sour yeast, a bit of citrus, and some pine resin. Flavor is crisp with a bracing bitterness counterbalanced by some sweet malt with woody undertones. Refreshing, drinkable beer that doesn’t stand out as unique, but is good quality.

Nordcore (1009) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Brown, hazy with a short-lived white head. Fruity aroma, grapes, yeast and malt. Light bitter, medium sweet with a soft fruity end. Ok

giorgos_gtc (35) - GREECE - JUN 15, 2014
A mid range beer. Good to be combined with the start of a Friday’s night trekking. Its taste is something like a bitter orange or better grapefruit. Fairly good enough effort..

Armadill0 (260) - FINLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle. Yellow-brown, cloudy with a thick light brown head. Aroma has pine and ripe fruit. Taste has pine, citrus, orange and some wood. Oddly plastic on the aftertaste, turns properly bitter afterwards. Palate is just a bit too watery.

MarcoMignola (1) - Ravenna, ITALY - MAY 16, 2014 does not count
Appearance: Persistent, foamy offwhite head. The body is deep orange colored but brilliant, with a not eccesive carbonation. Smell: it faint even if you can smell a bit of grapefruit. Taste: Fruity aroma, not so persistent, mandarin and grapefruit. The herbal hops made it semi-dry but not bitter. Medium body. Fresh and certainly highly drinkable. If you go to Santorini is a must! (Better for sure than wine) Serving type: bottle

0,3l Flasche. Rötlich-orangenes Bier, kaum Schaum. Es riecht sehr fruchtig. Es schmeckt malzig mit starken Fruchtaromen nach Papaya und Rosinen. Gut gehopft.

Flaske 0,33l. Gave fra Rune. Drukket på RV124 12 Mar 14. Mørk gyldenbrun. Litt uklar. Høyt kremaktig skum som varer. Bra lacing. Aroma av aprikos & rosiner. Smaken litt tynn. Gress & litt frukt. Avslutter tørt & syrlig. Litt sedimenter igjen i flaska.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, 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 (Tromsø 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.
