yngwie (16535) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 26, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear, golden body with a small white head. Malty on the nose, with a pleasant fruity touch. Some metallic notes pulling in the wrong direction. Rather boring. Malty flavor as well, but with the same fruity and slightly metallic touch found in the aroma. Caramel and bread as well. Medium body, and a fruity finish with bread, toffee amd a metallic note in the background. There isnít anything wrong with this one, except itís boring. It is quite weak on aroma and flavor, unoffensive and easy to drink. (080426)

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2007
Dark amber with a moderate head. Itís like all the beers from IBS are built in the same boring way with a few small variations. This one has a malty aroma and flavour with weak notes of fruit and a moderate bitter finish. Itís just plain boring - but the name is funny...

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2007
500 ml bottle. Light copper colour. Medium-sized off-white coarse head. Apple aroma and a little sourish nutty malts. Grapefruit-like flavours. Quite sour actually, and with a light and sharp bitterness. Slightly medicinal. Lightbodied. Refreshing. Not really very nice, but drinkable it is. Could have done without the medicinal and sourish character.

Rune (11372) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2007
500ml bottle. Clear, deep amber body that brings a slightly malty aroma and ditto taste mixed with hoppy softness and bitter fruits towards the finish. Low-level foam. Funny illustration on the label (Oslo, 21.08.2007).

KnutAlbert (6713) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2007
Red/brown clear ale. Lots of caramel, some boiled sweets, a hint of smoke, perhaps. A bit thin, too one-dimensional, but all right for everyday sipping.

larsga (7316) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2007
Medium offwhite head. Reddish brown body. Faint wooden fruity aroma, very weak. Dry, wooden roasty caramelly taste with floral strawberry notes. Some sweetness as well. Watery. Resiny notes. Dry wooden tobaccoish papery roasty caramel aftertaste. Overall impression is watery roasty caramel. (0.5l bottle from Centra.)
