2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle, L-292/13, from Vinmonopolet Bestillingsutvalget. Two-finger sized white head slowly fading over a partially hazy golden body. Fragile lacing. Fruity aroma, grass and peach. Mid sweet pale malty flavours joined by peach and notes of yeasty fruitiness. Dry ending. Medium bodied. Okay, standard stuff (shared with friends at Finns place, Tromsø 09.04.2014).

Not bad for golden ale. Even though I am not a big fan of this type, this beer is not so bad. the extra hops saved the day...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Lambertseter. Pours slightly hazy golden with a lasting white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma with notes of soap, perfume and flowers. A bit yeasty and mildly hoppy with hints of citrus an tropical fruits. Medium sweet with soapy and candy like flavours and a fairly light bitterness. Not quite my cup of tea. Would actually prefer tea instead...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Clear golden color with a white head. Fine lacing.
Aroma: Yeast, citric and fruity.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet, and a moderate bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Mild farmhouse yeast, citric and fruity.
Overall impression: Well I do not think the brett a like taste was intended. Maybe some infection going on. But they were lucky. It made this beer quite interesting and tasty. The bottle had a lot of sediments in the bottom. I avoided them, and I think you should do also!
Personal stats: Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Ski, Norway

Flaske 0,33l. Gave fra Rune. Batch 292/13. Drukket på RV124 16 Feb 14. Gyldenbrun. Litt uklar. Litt skum som forsvinner nesten helt. Bra sitrusaroma med innslag av krydder. Sprudler litt på tunga. Smaken er sitrusfrukter med underliggende gjær. Bra tørsteslukker som ikke blir for søt. Litt bunnfall. KI=1

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33l bottle. Leaving it alone on the kitchen table after popping the cap is dangerous. It wants out of the bottle after a while and then you have to use the good old vaskeklut. Anyhow, it pours a cloudy orange looking one with a small lightly lacing just off-white top. On the nose I get a little bit of sweet fruits blended with dry clementine zest, light citrus and grapefruit bitterness. Definitely not extreme but it smells alright I have to say. Tastes alright as well. Feels soft oily in the mouth and it has a big bubbled average carbonation level. Soft grassy and zesty flavors. This and a little bit of hay dryness going on. Mellow and gentle bitterness all the way before it goes a light mouthdrying finish and aftertaste that also has hints of yeasty melon. Doesn’t taste directly bad or unexciting at all, but it’s still a beer I know that I won’t be purchasing again. 20.12.2013

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy blonde body with a small white head. Nose is soapy floral tones, pale malts and hints of straw. Taste is soapy herb notes, pale malts and hints of hay. Light body, soft carbonation. Not good, the beers from Santorini gave a good impression in the beginning but the last two has been really bad.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, 33 cl. It pours almost clear, with micro sized floaties. Golden in color, with a dense off-white head leaving lacings. Milky sour aroma with yeast and fruityness. The flavor more or less the same, with less milky sourness, and with some bitterness. Fizzy on the palate, medium body fullness. Some bitterness in the end. Seems to have been quite nice when fresh, but it certainly isn’t now. 140110
