Sigmund (5991) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2012
330 ml bottle, as Gotlands Red October (Wisby is not mentioned on the label), from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 6.0%. Pale brown to copper colour, large off-white head. Pleasant malty aroma with hints of caramel and brown bread, also some hints of over-ripe red fruits. The flavour is also malty with distinct notes of caramel, but is not too sweet. Decent hops in the finish, medium bitter aftertaste. A nice beer which i might well buy again.

yngwie (15764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. A clear, dark amber to copper coloured beer topped by a small, beige head. The aroma had toffee, bread and some roasted hints. The flavour is pretty much the same, with a little bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Lasting bready finish. A decent beer, but I’m not impressed, and can’t see myself having more bottles. 121222

ElDesmadre (2507) - Mikołów, POLAND - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle from a trade with Cunningham. Lots of grassy Saaz hops in the aroma, with a subtle addition of Amarillo citrus. There is some toasted malt in here but Saaz hops reigns supreme. Same goes for the flavour - while the body is robust in a marzen manner, the finish is very bitter, with an aftertaste of grass and hay. Saaz marzen? I like that!

teddybeer (2932) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 29, 2012
[Thanks to Cunningham]. 33cl bottle. Orangish colour with a nice beige head, creamy, good lasting and nice lacework. Aroma is hoppy, orange, fresh and malty. Flavour has a good maltiness, bittery at the beginning with citrus and orange notes, and a final maintaining a decent bitterness. Carbonation and body are medium.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo enjoyed at home
Amber red, tanned head. Smells of dust, caramel, hints of other hops. Light sweet, quite dry and crisp. Moderate bitter finish, some dust and grass. Totally my opinion of this beer can be described as this.... Where the f%#%& is the amarillo?

Foffern (1499) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle at home. The colour is golden amber with a medium off-white head. Aromas of leather, wood, wild berries and caramel. More leather in the flavour along with oak, sweet malt and grass. Reminds me a bit of a pilsener. Has a soft and rich mouthfeel, and a medium bitterness. Easy-drinking and tasteful, and quite bitter beer.

tfredvik (1505) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2012
Clear copper body with a quite large, creamy, off-white head that is very long-lived: it takes a long time before the head settles as a thick layer that laces the glass well. Moderate aroma that is mainly malty and sweet with caramel and pale malts. According to the label this is supposed to be hopped with Saaz and Amarillo (is this another version than the test brew from 2009?), but I don’t get any US hops notes. I hardly get any hop notes at all, to be honest. Some faint sweet fruity notes with hints of citrus, perhaps. Light sweet taste with a moderate but quite sharp bitter finish. The caramel sweetness partially tames the sharpness. In addition to the caramel, the flavours include fruits and some metal. Medium body, moderate to soft carbonation. Not that interesting.
[33 cl bottle, 6% ABV, enjoyed 9 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål, Oslo]
