Furseth (1985) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2007

Gr0ve (2156) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2007
500 ml bottle. Copper colour. Crystal clear. Medium-sized off-white fine-laced head that clings to the glass. Sweetish nutty and malty aroma with clean earthy hops. Crisp hop flavours. Mouthfeel is light and crisp, but also watery. Finishes somewhat empty because of the water. Drying grassy hops in the finish.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2007
Bottled. Clear copper colour. Frothy head. Subtle notes of sweet caramel and Kentish hops in aroma, but not much malt profile. Watery with bit of butterscotch, bit of toast malts and UK hops. Flavourwise very nice but oh so lacking in body. Nice light bitterness.

ekstedt (5630) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2007
Bottle. Clear copper colour, with a thin off-white head. Really not much malt aroma, just some burnt sugar notes, and grassy hops. Thin and watery, very bitter finish. The full strenght version is much better.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2007
Bottled. An amber beer with a thick white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with light notes of caramel, and so is the flavor. The body is thin (no woder).

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, amber golden with a dense, off-white head leaving some lacework. Vague aroma of caramel. Thin body with a dry nuttiness and some dry hops in the finish. Quenching but watery. 040307

gnoff (7979) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2007
(50 cl bottle from Coop) Clear walnut brown color with a big lasting tan head. Fruity, malty and hoppy scent in a good balanced, but unfortunately rather weak, way. Also some almond paste hiding beneath the rest. Metallic taste with a slightly roasted aftertaste. Hard to overlook the dominating metal and find anything else. Low bitterness. Acidic and spritzy mouthfeel.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - FEB 2, 2007
Despite the low alc, this is very tasty, Nice dry bittery taste. Bottled has much bigger carbonation than the one on tap.
