BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012
June 2009: Another Spendrup beer available from IKEA in the UK. It is sold here in a 33cl brown bottle (5%). Poured into a stemmed Veltins Pilsner tulip it looked very impressive: A lovely crisp white head sat on top of a mid-range golden lager yellow body. A clean looking beer, carbonisation clearly visible rising to replenish the head. Aroma was barely of anything, some cereal notes, gets my standard score of 3 for a lager. Dry and hoppy at first, then the dryness really kicks in and the hops lose their way. The dryness took over completely and ruined the beer for me. No malts to be found either, a disappointing beer apart from its looks.

Geokkjer (6679) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours straw yellow with a white head. Aroma of fruitiness, some corn, malt and herbs. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some bitterness and herbs. Thin body, lively carbonation.

Linnet (1324) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2012
Run of the mill pilsener, bigger bitterness and crisper malt profile than the standard macro, in no way an interesting beer though.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2012
0.33l bottle shared with the tasting crew. This one pours a clear golden body with a small bubbly - almost transparent little head. The aroma is pale malty with some soft and low fruity yeasty hints. Thin and watery texture in the mouth with a medium carbonation level. It starts off pungent muddy with a yeasty-cheese like yeastiness before it ends in a watery and almost sour finish and aftertaste. Forgettable. 30.01.2012

tmrmwel (1316) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours light golden, with a nice but small head. Aroma is roasted malts, and notes of a zesty hoppines. Flavour is a pleasant roasted malt, with a nice sweetness of toffee and bread. There’s a presence of zesty hops, giving a fairly bitter and long after taste.

MrHangover (3300) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2012
Bottle. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of malts and grains. Bit sweet aroma too. Flavour is bitter, full bitterness. Good pilsener. full bodied.

ClubGonzo (4752) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle from Centra Colosseum, Oslo, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Light golden body, tiny white head. Aroma is light malty tones with hints of dry hops. Taste is astringent hops, honey, cellar must. Too old, probably (expiration date a few months back). Will re-rate on occasion. Oh wait; no - can’t be bothered with this one. :-P

Kristall-König (2498) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2011
Nur leicht hopfiger Geruch, besetzt mit Fehlaromen von Zigarrenasche. Startet getreidig. Mitte flacht süßlich ab, wirkt wässrig. Mehliger, ganz spät abbitternder Ausklang. Schwaches Bier.

Clear and golden yellow with a huge white head. Hoppy and herbs with malty notes. Good carbon, light body. Malty and some fruits on palate. Again hoppy and bitter aftertaste. B@H
