Clear orange, very small off white head. Aroma a little fruity, with some grainy malt. Medium body. Not much alcohol. Flavor is sweet but not too syrupy. At first some malt, a tad bland but brightens up with a crisp hoppy finish. Not bad. What’s next, double light lagers?

berlinoise2go (669) - NORWAY - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Clear copper colour. Half-inch white head, reduces fairly quickly, but leaves a nice band of lacing. Aroma of almonds, oxidized butter, caramel, pineapple, wood. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice mouthfeel, refreshing without being watery. Taste is semisweet, gradually turning into dusty bitterness, well-balanced. Long, almondy bittersweet aftertaste.

Simonsen (866) - NORWAY - MAR 15, 2014
Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Mørk kobber, klar, liten hvit skumtopp. Lite/medium karbonert. Smaker malt, karamell, honning, rosin, jord, korn. En fornøyelig øl.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Copper clear, white head. Smells of honey, resins, wood, hops and malt. Moderate sweet, sirupy, honey,resins and wood. Quite typical malt and hop bill for Southern Tier beers. Quite clean flavor, medium bitter which is quite woody. Very nice stuff

beerbill (3573) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a murky gold with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Mild aroma of malt with a few weak bready notes. The flavor is malt, somewhat grainy, with some light caramel sweetness followed by some mild lemon. Mild bitterness at the finish.

ClubGonzo (4752) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a light amber body with a large creamy white head. Nose is pale malts, red berries, straw and hints of corn, apricot and a faint trace of sulfur. Taste is caramel, alcohol, straw, nut and hints of red fruits and herbs. Medium to full body, soft to medium carbonation. Semi-dry finish with quite a bit of booze in the aftertaste. Decent enough, but I’d rather enjoy a nice "single" steam beer; this is not the best of genres to pump up IMO.

RoOMyhr (4) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014 does not count
Golden color, small head. Low carb. Nose;caramel, fruit like apple and pear, wood. Taste; at first it feel like you’re having a cider until the oakwood kicks in. Decent bitterness well integrated. Abv feel high, would have guessed higher that 8, but its not unpleasant in any way. Unusual beer, but interesting.
