Dark gold beer, armoatic, fine malty body supplemented with hops giving flowers and bitterness.Fine carbonation. A pleasant beer, not extreme, but just the well crafted stuff you’d want with food.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2010
Medium offwhite head. Hazy pale amber body with carbonation. Earthy floral peas aroma with mealy resiny notes. Dry-sweet earthy papery taste with strawy resiny notes. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry resiny peas aftertaste with mealy metallic wooden earthy notes. Nice and highly drinkable. Quite a bit of flavour for 4.7%, but could use more flavour. (0.5l bottle, Meny Grønlands Torg, Oslo.)

Bottle at Cardinal. It’s an unclear, golden-orange beer with a small, dense, off-white head leaving lacings. Judging from the aroma, there’s certainly some Brett here. I am sure it is not intended, but it suits the beer. Fruity, citrusy and spiced. Some pale malts. The flavor is orangey sour and slightly orangey sweet, with a touch of pale malts and spices. Medium to thin body. Sourish, fruity finish with a pleasant bitterness, although I would like more of it. Well, I can’t imagine the Brett is intended, but it sure works out well. Probably nice when not off as well. 101113

Clear light golden yellow colour. Aroma; Good maltprofile, yeast notes - freshly baked bread. And some licorice aswell. Flavour; On the nose it´s alittle sour in the start, but it finishes good with a little bitternes. It got a nice maltprofile here aswell, not a whole lot of hoptones though. Summary; A good beer, I just wish there was more to it!

Holmen1 (2275) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2014
Flaske fra Matkroken Stokka (Stavanger): imponernede høyt&flott skum som varer. Snev av røykmalt (?) både i aroma og smak. Mer personlighet enn mange av de engelske golden ales jeg har prøvd. Minner faktisk mer om en farmhouse eller saison. Interessant, lurer på hva slags gjær og gjæringstemperatur de har brukt for å få til dette. Tørr og forfrisikende sommerdrikk med fin tørrhet og lett bitterhet i ettersmaken. Må nok en ny tur opp til Stokka.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2011
Bottle from Vaaland Spesialbutikken, Bryne. Hazy orange with a massive, foamy head, vaguely resembling that of a fire extinguisher in density and shape. :-P Aroma is mild grassy hops and hints of baker’s yeast. Taste is pale malts, hints of earth and some floral hops. This seems like another "home brew" from a farm in Norway, nice enough but not very true to the (otherwise refreshing) style of "golden/blonde" ale in my opinion. Pretty OK, but nothing impressive.

berlinoise2go (604) - NORWAY - JUN 4, 2011
Bottle (50cl) from Fenaknoken, Oslo. Batch 40. Hazy, light amber colour. Inch-thick offwhite head, good retention, scattered lacing. Aroma of mild hops, yeast. Fruity with hint of honey and caramel. Light/medium body, watery. A bit flat carbonation, but refreshing. Fruity aftertaste with mild bitterness. Good with chicken burger.
