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 (3564) - 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 (4435) - 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 Id 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 youre 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.

Theydon_Bois (11079) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2014
Tap at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell, 17/02/14. Lightly hazed golden with a moderate off white cover. Nose is a lightly bittered fruit mish mash, bread dough, orange peel, caramel, ripe orchards. Taste comprises caramel malt, vanilla fudge, candied orange peel, soft bread dough. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Ok easy drinker but falls way short on the flavour front for 8% ABV!

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2014
On tap @ Schouskjelleren. As good as crystal clear in the glass this one with a deep golden color and a nice big really dense and creamy off-white head. The aroma has a nice sweet fruitiness with lots of caramel and wood juices. Its above average on the carbonation and light oily in the mouth. Taste like an imperial pilsner. It definitely has some alcohol, but its in no way disturbing. Lots of more fruity flavors here. Old ripe bananas and apples. Its quite malty and perhaps a bit sweet at times but its still quite drinkable for a beer of this caliber. Ends with traces of sweet biscuit and sweet malts. All in all not bad at all. 15.10.2013

tectactoe (2851) - Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle: pours a shiny amber color with good clarity all around, slight copper tones here & there, capped with a weak, off-white, big-bubbled head. Aroma full of very faint floral perfume, sweet biscuit malts, mild cornbread, some steel-y grain notes, & perhaps a kiss of DMS in the back-end. Taste has more of that sweet, almost cornbread-like flavor, pale malt, toasted biscuits, a dash of honey that leads into a mildly bitter, finishing bite. Hops seem somewhat floral mid-palate but finish more earthy & spicy, similar to Saaz. Body is a little slick with a lightly wet finish... This was much better than expected, & drinkable for 8% ABV. Surprised by some of the harsh ratings... what did you expect from a "double" steam beer? I thought it was actually pretty tasty.
