Hazy red-amber color with small head. Mild but nice hoppy aroma. The body is quite weak, with caramel flavor, the mouthfeel is very dry, it has medium to strong bitterness and a light puckery feeling.
Mediocre Amber Ale.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2012
0.5 L bottle from Centra Colosseum, Oslo. A firm, lightly tanned head, on a crystal clear reddish amber body. Sweet-scented nutty and spiced caramelly malts. A whiff of currants and citrus fruits. Quite light in body, slick mouthfeel. Nutty and peppery caramel malts in the flavor. Gentle bitterness. Mild berry-fruity hop flavor. Light watered down malty ending. Lacks some fullness, but overall a pretty decent ale.

ClubGonzo (4024) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle from Centra Colosseum, Oslo. Pours a rather amber body (for a "red ale") with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is toffee, hints of burnt sugar and citrus fruits. Taste is toffee malty tones with hints of citrus and some burnt sugar, pretty much as the aroma promised. Creamy mouthfeel. An OK bitter, but not quite to my liking.
