Palme (3335) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2011
0.5l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen shared with ClubGonzo. This one pours a pale golden body with a heavy lacing, sidesticking white head. Aroma is mild with some light grassy notes, watery fruits and hints of hops. Average carbonation, quite light-bodied and it has a thin and watery mouthfeel. Flavors are quite bland, but you can sense some mild malts and weak hops. Ends with a nice light malty finish and aftertaste. Mild is the keyword on this one.

Svesse (6080) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2011
(Bottle, Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm, 16 Sep 2011) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, peaches and biscuity malt. Fruity, slightly malty taste with citrus, peaches, biscuits and a mild citrussy bitterness in the finish. Light body, fairly dry. Tasty, refreshing and very drinkable. Nice one.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear darkish golden, good white head. Grassy hops, hint of something earthy on the nose. Clean, dry grassy palate with some hints of zesty hop. Nice refreshing summer brew, but nothing exciting.

BeerCast_Rich (1869) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 25, 2011
[500ml bottle, Peckhams Stockbridge, Edinburgh] Extremely clear golden beer with a decent white head, which reduces pretty quickly. Aromas are quite subtle, some malt and a touch of grassy hop. Very drinkable, as the palate is clean, with a lemony citrus component. Bitter, slightly dry aftertaste [09072007]

DruncanVeasey (7160) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2011
Bottle from Booth’s, Ilkley. Brilliant orange gold, almost Lucozade with a strong lacing head. Mandarin cheesecake and violets aroma. Tangerine and cream, lively (not itchy )carbonation beading until the glass is drained; some cherry and lemon and honey cough sweet. Dry closing rasp of soapy hop and husky malt. Well put together like most of The Brothers’ stuff. Ideal lunchtime BBQ refreshment.
