Kestral (506) - Årnes, - JUN 22, 2012
Tap at Olympen. Deep, slightly hazy amber with a fat, creamy tan head. Aroma is slightly skunky, floral, a bit fruity, some clean bready malts, a little grassy and citric.. Feels like there are british hops in this one, I’m thinking EKG. Well balanced, solid bitter finish that leads to a semidry finish. Nice length. Light bodied, medium carbonation. This is good, but definitely straightforward stuff. A nice thirst quencher, probably good with food aswell, but it’s not a brew to sit down to sip and analyze for half an hour. Clean and well brewed though.

Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 8, 2012
In short: A caramelized citrusy IPA with a superb freshness character. Highly refreshing
How: Tap at Olympen, Oslo Norway
The look: Partly cloudy amber body topped by a large dense beige head with good retention and leaving an enormous amount of lacings on the glass. Good looking beer
In long: Nose is fresh citrusy hops (oranges come out strong) with strong grassy notes. Taste has toasted biscuity malts, crisp tasty caramel, assertive citrusy hops (oranges and bitter grapefruits), a nice tartness coming from the grapefruit flavor as well as some lemony/citric notes. Overall freshness sensation, bright and vibrant. Refreshing like a blond IPA but as nourishing as a caramelized golden IPA. Another superior offering by Schouskjelleren, definitely my favorite Norwegian brewery. And once again I’m rating a Schouskjelleren higher than everybody else, maybe I’m overrating this brewpub, just because I’m perfect doesn’t mean I never make mistakes... actually it does… ho well, so I guess this means you guys suck ass at reviewing beers. Sorry.

Hazy amber. Aroma is sweet, malty and spicy. Flavour has slightly roasted malts and is peppery and yeasty. A full hoppy, bitter finish and a hint of smoke.

visionthing (2673) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2012
Sampler on tap at Schouskjelleren. Pours slightly hazy light amber with a white head. Aroma of citrus and malt with lots of hops. Nice and fruity and more hoppy than expected. Reminds me of pale ale. Quite dry and slightly bitter finish.
