AWS9 (549) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2014
Tap. Mediocre golden pour. Kind of plain hop, wheat, cereal nose, but smells enough like beer. Has some crisp honey in the initial taste and a clean finish that doesn’t fight, so it’s refreshing to start, but seemed to get stale rather quickly and was a bit of a chore by the end of it. Not terrible, but disappointing.

IPAgutten79 (770) - Skui, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2014
Lys oransje med lavt skum. Helt gjennomsiktig. Frisk aroma av blomster, sitrus og malt. Smaken er noe metallisk, med en anelse bitterhet. I tillegg malt og noe karamell. Tynn konsistens.

Foffern (1431) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a golden orange color. The beer is topped with an off-white colored solid foam. The aroma is sweet with notes of biscuit, orange, lemon, light malt, jelly candy, and the hops is lurking in the background. Light and comfortable. In the flavor I find hay and more pale malt and a little fudge in an otherwise dry finish. Mouth feel is smooth, and the beer has a moderate bitterness. This is an easy-drinking, balanced and classic English pale ale.

50 cl bottle from Coop Extra. Pours clear golden with a big soon fading white head. Aromas of hops and citrus. Medium carbonation and slightly bitter taste. Good ale.

ERB92 (509) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2014
Bread, grains, fruits, caramel and faint citrus in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light to medium body with a average carbonation. Overall a nice fruity Irish Ale.

ClubGonzo (4725) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear dark golden body with a large creamy white head of considerable longevity. Aroma is mellow raisin tones, caramel, straw, grains and bready malts with hints of herbs. Taste is watery grains, caramel, almonds and hints of bread. Light, near-watery body, medium to soft carbonation. Horribly boring, but still quite quaffable.

Hallstein (277) - Skogn, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2014
Nice dark golden color with aromas of grapefruity hops and a nice bready malt. Flavor is perfectly balanced. Not too hoppy, not too bitter, and with a nice malty sweetness that is not overpowering. Overall a good beer, easily quaffable!

Vighals (1983) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2014
Gylden brun klar med høyt hvitt skum som ligger godt. Honning, karamell i starten, så malt og korn. Medium fyldig bittersøt smak av sitrus, karamell og humle. Medium kullsyre. Medium lang ettersmak.

Draught, small stable creamy head, quite clear light orange colour with yellow taints, aroma of bread and grains, flavour of of citrus and tropical fruits with a light bready backbone, pleasant and not too strong citrusy herbal bitterness. Suprisingly hoppy and really good.
