Furseth (1955) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2010
Bottle: Clear golden colour, nice creamy head. Aroma is sweet,malty, bread, some caramely and fruits in the end. Flavor is sweet, maltynes, a bit creamy mouth feeling, and the body is surpicly thin to medium(with a alc on 4,0%) easy to drink, fresh. In the end there was a nice hopynes, not to long but enough to say it was a nice blond ale this one.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2010
0.5 L bottle from Systembolaget. Solid white head. Near-clear, brass colored body. Nice minty hop aroma. Same for the flavor, minty and leafy hops. Also a fine malt profile, fairly dry and rounded with a refreshing sourness beneath. Impressively full considering the low alcohol strenght. Sourish malts, and an earthy and minty bitterness in the end. Not as sweet as they claim, but utterly refreshing.

KnutAlbert (6078) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2010
Bottel from Systembolaget. Crisp and clean, lots of ripe fruit, including apricots and dry grapes. More refreshing than most British golden ales, as there is a fine hoppy crisp feeling cutting through.
