Skinnyviking (7069) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2009
Bottle. Low but lasting white fluffy head. Clear golden body. Mild sweet weak fruity barley malt aroma. The hops bitterness of this beer is better than expected. The malt flavor is at the front. Low carbonation and a long bitter aftertaste.

FatPhil (9362) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 7, 2009
Cask (Kuikka, Helsinki)
Pale hazy orange, large frothy head. Sweet fruity and pungently hopped aroma - definitely new world hops. Refreshing palate. Simple malty body, and fairly agressive, but well balanced hops. Finish is milky malts and resiny hops. Aroma too pungent, but otherwise a very tasty beer.

Rune (8066) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2009
Half pint served at the right drinking temperature from well-kept cask at The White Star, Stoke on Trent. Slightly hazy, golden body with a skinny strip of white foam that left great lacing on the glass. Sweet smell of dry fruity hops. Fusion of citrus hops in flavour with herbal and spicy undertones. Rounded bitter finish. A bit too smooth on the swallow, perhaps (02.05.2009).
