OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2012
0.33 L bottle picked up @Utobeer, London. Hazy dark amber body. Medium yellow-blond head. Nice hop nose, oranges and apricot. Substantially fruity-bitter flavor. Floral and grassy notes. Light, restrained, dryish malt body. Medium to light in body. Quite rough on the palate. A true quencher, not fully balanced though.

larsga (7313) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2012
Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body. Deep tropical fruit and catnip aroma with orangey notes. Dry-bitter dandelion and chalk taste with tropical fruit notes. Mid-to-light body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dryish mealy orangey aftertaste with resiny notes. Nice, but a bit lacking in body for all that bitterness. (0.33l bottle shared by Ole_R.)

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 24, 2012
330 ml bottle. Red copper colour. Hazy. Tall creamy light beige head. Yeasty aroma at first, then orange zest. Grainy malts. Surprisingly bitter. Salty ashy flavours. Light, which the bitterness does not quite balance. But it sort of works.

ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Clear amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Light palate - pretty dry. Nice malt underneath, trace of toffee. Fairly hoppy but astringent hops. Juicy marmalade. Dry finish. Alright!

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s Easter tasting 2012. It pours amber, with a thick white head. The nose is floral, jasmine, honey suckle and spice. The taste is spice, hay, floral (in particular jasmine) and quite a bit of soap, with a bitter-dry finish. Light-medium body and lowish carbonation. Good, but a bit too much soap.
