HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Tap at Uerige. Et leckere droepje. Typical Alt bier that is overrated inmy opinion.Aroma is ok, you have predominatly malt, flavors are complemnetd by hops that leads to a bitter finish. A session beer for sure, but nothing spectacular.

frizzzzle (76) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 30, 2006
Pours a brown-ish color, with a medium head. The smell is slightly funky, and I can’t place it very well.. Leather, maybe? The flavor makes less of an impression than the smell. It’s dry overall, but doesn’t have a very powerful flavor at all. Mouthfeel is slightly watery, and the finish is dry. I’m not entirely impressed by this one, but the flip-top bottle is cool as heck.

Bov (10454) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 21, 2006
courtesy of Laurent Mousson - clear amber colour with a fine beige head and a nice lace; peppery and earthy aroma, light notes of cherry in the background; some tartness, medium-bodied, slightly oily and with a solid bitterness; very dry fruity and nutty finish - this is a damned good altbier !

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle at The St Albans Beer Festival 28 Sep 06. Dark golden coloured. Yellowish head. Unclear. A bitter overall impression developing over a long period.

Rune (9319) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2006
Swing-top bottle that gives a shot and smoke when opened. Light yellow, creamy head over an orange coloured head. Plain hoppy to the nose. Has got some sweet caramel quality and a touch of lightly honeyed malt. Dry finish with a bitter touch at the end (Sampled at The St Albans Beer Festival, 28.09.2006).

Quickly becoming a fan of this brewer. Aroma of leather and hints of grass with malty bitterness. Flavor is good without being overly bitter. A great session beer.

henrikb (1260) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2006
UPDATED: APR 17, 2007 Gravity - Red copper body with a creamy off white head not lasting; Very elegant nose with a great balance of noble hop and malt with the malt aromas on the strong side; Full and bitter body with a superb balance; Long evolving finish lasting forever, very balanced aromas and feel. Great beer!..........Bottle (6-4-5-3-14=3.2) - Dark amber to brown body, thick off-white head, lacing; Malty bitter and caramel notes in nose; Bitter to harsh, thin body; Quite long bitter caramel like finish, watery textured. Generally quite unbalanced.

Tmoney99 (11900) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Bottle. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate caramel malty smoke aroma. Light to medium bosy with a slick texture. Medium balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. Interesting drinkable beer.

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Cloudy amber pour. Very light tan head that was small and didn’t last long. Sweet aroma. Caramel. The flavor was different - didn’t expect it. Hints of smoke - burnt wood chips, ash - roasted chicken. Then hop bitterness. Felt thin going in but after a swallow it feels waxy on the tongue. Bottle is cool. Love the swing top.
