AndresTM (322) - Vienna, - MAY 26, 2014
Cerealy aroma with slightly piney, slightly fruity hops in the background. Carbonation is medium and the body is medium to light. The taste is medium bitter, with the grainy malts making the biggest impression.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2014
0.5l bottle. This is one of those crystal clear golden looking ones with a nice, really nice big lacing almost a little fluffy white head on top. Looks nice, smells like butter. A little bit of wet dog also here, but this is a butter bomb in the aroma. Pale sweet malts and butter caramel. A mild hints of something that could be hops. It’s by all means not a horrible aroma, but way to much of the butter. It tastes surprisingly OK. Easy to drink. A mild grassy bitterness combined with thin caramel and again, butter and wet dog. Drinkable, but not something I will be having again. 25.10.2014

StilleStorm (892) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2014
DAA; Bottle 50cl. Pours large, frothy, clear golden with moderate lasting and lacing white head. Nose is shy, pale malt, caramel and hay with a citrus touch. Taste is light sweet and bitter. Body is light to medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

Sigmund (5317) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2014
500 ml bottle, from SPAR Hana. ABV is 4.5%. Brewed with Amarillo hops. Clear golden colour, moderate white head. Moderate aroma of fruity hops, some earthy notes too. Light bodied. Medium dry flavour, bland start, a little fruit, tolerable hops in the finish. Very little complexity. Not really bad, but there are better ales out there. Won’t spend money on more of this one.

turbothy (1120) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2014
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 (8493) - 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).
