OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2010
0.5L bottle from Systembolaget. Reddish amber body with good clarity. Two fingers of foamy beige head. Leafy and light resinous hop aroma with notes og grapefruit and red berries. Taste is dry, restrained malty and hop driven. Faint caramel, and a generous amounts of both bittering and flavoring (tropical, resin and red berries) hops. Quite light in body. Crisp and clean in the mouth. Lingering hop bitterness in the ending. Good stuff, almost sessionable.

Bottle. Dark amber with a large head. Nice aroma of fruits, citrus, caramel, grass and pine. Fruity taste with caramel and some burnt notes. Medium body, long aftertaste. Very drinbkable but the aroma was better than the taste.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2010
Bottled. Pours out in clear deep burgundy amber colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, berries, pine, fudge and grass. Medium-bodied with hoppy notes of grass and and blonde grapefruit on a malty foundation of caramel and fudge. Blond grapefruit, grass and salt in the long bitter aftertaste. Tasty stuff, especially for being an American amber style ale but it’s not as mind-blowing as their Easter Ale.

olsvammel (3066) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2010
Appearance: 4/5 It had a clear amber liquid with a fluffy dirty beige head that left allot of foam on the side of the glass. Smell: 6/10 Grassy hops, citrus, malt and some fruitiness. Do I smell oranges? Taste: 6/10 Grassy hops, malt, some fruits and flowers and that orange flavour is there again. Some spiciness but not enough to say what it is. Mouthfeel: 3/5 Medium smooth with a bit of sting to it. Medium body. Comment: Even though the description says American style ale my first thought was British. It’s moderately hopped with a fruity and flowery flavour. But not fruity like many American hops, more like some of the British hops. Anyway, leaving that subject. I think this is a drinkable ale but it feels like it’s missing something, the flavours aren’t really mixing as well as I would have liked. There is some spices here but not sure if it’s from hops, yeast or malt or if it’s actually added spices. Either way it’s not distinct enough so that I can put my finger on it. But that’s not a complaint as I like beers like that, a bit mysterious. Now to the question of what to eat with this. I reckon it’s intended for the Easter feast but I can’t say for sure if it would work. Will have to try during Easter holiday.

Marsiblursi (3005) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2010
(Bottle) Pours copper red with a small, creamy off-white head. The aroma holds notes of floral, fruity, mild piny and tangerine/grapefruit citric hops. The malt is cookie roasted, bready and light caramelly. Some burned toffee. Maybe some strawberries and crisp bread as well. The flavour is dry, medium bitter and light (coffee) acidic. Citric, mild floral and mild piny hops. The malt brings tones of dry caramel and burned crisp bread. Herbal, light resinous and acidic finish. The mouthfeel is clean and medium carbonated. Near medium bodied.

pilsnerrogge (2500) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2010
Bottled:
Reddish amber colour, small but dense head. Aroma is cookie dough, green bananas and hops. Flavour is all about hops. The bitterness is a little bit too sharp and unbalanced; gets a little bit too much in the long run.
