Pours clear golden with small head. Sweet aroma. The flavour straight out of the fridge is pleasantly hopyy and bitter, but as the beer warms just a little, a wet cardboard taste permeates the brew. Uh. Average, I guess.

Rune (8348) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2014
500ml bottle picked up at my local Prix store. Loose white head to a clear amber coloured body. Mild malt-fruity aroma. Brown malty flavours alongside moments of ginger and leafy hops. Restrained bittersweet tail. Medium to thin bodied. Soft on the swallow. Satisfying (shared with fiends, Tromsø 08.11.2014).

Draught at McGann’s, Doolin. Clear amber with a white head. Straw and malt aroma, classic pot of piss. Mild flavour of light malts, weak citrus--where are the hops at?

Holmen1 (2716) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2014
Flaske fra Obs, Mariero: klar dypgylden med fint hvitt gardinskum. Forsiktig aroma (av amarillo iflg. etiketten), og smaken er også tilbakeholden. Mild bitterhet i avslutningen. Egentlig ingenting feil med denne, men den er bare anonym.

djoeye (1725) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2014
Clear golden somewhat yellow-toned body, good bright off white head, a bit lacings. Aroma; hay’ish hops, pale malts, faint faint fruits. Taste; caramel pale malts, hops, hay, dust, mild fruit peels, mild grains. Clean on palate, somewhat thin bodied. Finishes with notes of bread, mild peels. When I saw the groovy label and bottle, I’d hoped there would be more into it. [500ml brown bottle, abv4.5%, #L4234, BB21.06.15, B@EideHandel, 5€, T@höme]

Purchased a Centra in Northern Ireland. The 500 mil bottle pours a golden color with a white head. Medium body, Smooth Mouth feel. Flavor is caramel malts and a touch of light fruit. Light bitter finish. Decent.
