gunnar (5128) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 14, 2013
500 ml bottle from Beermerchants, enjoyed in Panormo. Pours almost clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of canned peach, light fruity hops. Taste is smooth malty, lots of citrussy and grassy crisp hops playing against it, dry mouthfeel and finish. Not as hop forward as normal from Kernel, still a decent brew.

Osprey87 (1383) - WALES - MAR 20, 2013
Oct 2012 - chunky bits of sediment, some surprising flavours here. Not much bitterness at all. Chemically taste. Very mild floralness. Flavour of synthetic sweets - millions and millions? Not bad.

Rune (7776) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2012
330ml bottle, drink-in at the microbrewery. White layer, a few spots to the glassware. Clear amber coloured body. Modest aroma of fresh and dried fruits. Juicy malts in flavour with herbal hops added by a spicy touch. Semi-dry ending. Easy to quaff. Likable (London, 03.11.2012).

deyholla (6503) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a near white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a nice pine hop note with light citrus and backing light grains. Flavor starts with slightly dank pine with some grapefruit and underlying with a hint of earthy grain.

_angst_ (2583) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2012
500 ml bottle bought @ Beermerchants.com. Pours hazy reddish golden with a rather thin frothy offwhite head that leaves a thick lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity and earthy with crackers, yellow kiwi fruit, gooseberries, passion fruit, mandarin oranges, grapefruit rinds, pine needles and grass. Taste is is tiny sweet, vegetal and herbal with crackers, sweet peas, moist soil, green herbs, grass, pine needles, gooseberries and grapefruit rinds. Mouthfeel is soft, round, astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter and herbal with crackers, grapefruit rinds, green peas, lemon balm, lemon grass and gooseberries. Nah... Very strange hop character on this one...

Marsiblursi (2993) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2012
(Bottle) Pours cloudy dark golden with an off-white head. The aroma holds ginger, apples, arm sweat, lemon, gooseberries, kiwi, wood, bread and hay. Undertones of canned peaches, incense and floral tea. Maybe a touch of phenols. The flavour is light sweet to dry, near medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of tart citrus, ginger, wood, grass and light bready malt. Whisper of honey. The mouthfeel is soft and light tart with a light to medium carbonation. Light astringent finish. Light to medium bodied.

Bottle from Nina’s. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of oranges, apricots, pine and caramel. Similar flavours with a pithy finish. Moderate carbonation and decent bitterness. Nice and dry to finish and a foamy mouth-feel.
