GusL (15) - DENMARK - AUG 10, 2012
Sweden, Scania, ICA (local supermarket). Pours amber coulered, small amount of white(ish) foam, slowly fading. Slightly malty nose. A somewhat watery taste, followed by a quite pleasant hopiness, which fades a bit too fast in my opinion - although, the mixture of spicy hopiness and lightly malted palate is rather satisfying even though it leaves you with a watery sense of longing for more (alcohol?). If you’re too lazy to go to "the system," this is quite a fitting alternative, I’d say.

mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Swedish supermarket: Pours amber with a slightly creamy head. Aroma is pale, slightly sugary malt, with barely a hop or two. Taste has some slightly roasted malt flavour in there. The body is, however, somewhat watery. Slightly interesting, but not very good.

Borup (5620) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle from ICA, Ystad. Clear amber colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, fruit and hops.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2012
330ml bottle bought at Coop Forum Kiruna. Shared with Finn. Clear, amber coloured body. Diminishing white head. Modest, plain malty smell, semi-sweet. Malt-fruity taste with a careful roastiness. Discreet bitter endnotes. Thin and rather diluted, but quite possible to drink and like (Tromsø, 30.05.2012).

nazzty (881) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2012
The foam will disappear pretty quickly. Good bitterness and smooth malt flavor. I miss, however, toffee flavor that is normally found in the English ales.

Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2012
Flaske 0,5l kjøpt inn av Rune på Coop Forum, Kiruna. Delt med ham under rateseanse i WC-veien 30 Mai 12. Gyldenbrun. Middels luftig skum. Forsiktig maltaroma. Smaken svakt fruktig med en undertone av røstet malt. En utvannet utgave av originalen - men gjenkjennelig,

finol (2098) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2012
Bottle from ICA Maxi Lindhagen. Pours amber with a firm white head. Light aroma of malt and a hint of hops. Taste of malt, orange cest and metall.

Linnet (1088) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2012
Ar: Fruity hops, earthy, perfume, good aroma, but rather faint. Ap: Amber colour, medium off-white head. F: Perfumy, almost artificial, rather bitter, fruity, metallic, and a funky finish. M: Watery. T: This was not to my liking.

Cunningham (4303) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle from MaxiMat at Svinesund, Sweden. Light amber colour with an off white head. Caramel and light fruity aroma. Light malt caramel flavour. An unusual nice beer located in a swedish grocery store.

LoFi (1550) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle. Quick rating. Amber, off-white head. Fruity, sweet and grainy malt, not that high bitterness. Light-bodied. Not bad for a low ABV beer, but probably won’t buy it again.
