On tap @ Amundsen. Copper hazy, thin white head. Smells of banana, bread and malts. Taste of banana and malts - much sweetness, some citrus, zest and acids. Feel is a bit sticky, carbonation is pricky and tickles the mouth. Nice finish with some hops. Smaskifa (136) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2011
Tap @ Hånderkerstuene. Pours a dark reddish brown colour with a decent slightly beige head. Quite fruity and malty aroma, hints of acid and spices. It has a taste I’ve never before experienced, much like the stuff mentioned in the aroma. Kinda full palate, nice carbonation and hops. All over a very intersting beer I’m pleased to have tasted.

330 ml draught at Håndverkerstuene. Deep reddish espenra (1016) - Kurland, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2011
copper colour. Hazy. Tall off-white fine-laced head that clings to the
glass. Bready rich aroma with yeasty banana notes. Lots of
caramel. Full-bodied, but still refreshing. Sparkling carbonation and
a light sour edge. Hops are fresh and invigorating. Overall a very
nice roggenbier. Well balanced and very drinkable.
On tap at Håndverkerstuene. Amber colour with a minimal head. Aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, malts, syrup and bananas. Flavour is sweet as well. Notes of caramel malts, syrup, barley, bananas and sone wheat. The darker bigger brother of a hefeweissen. Medium long aftertaste. OleR (4849) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2011

åndtverkerstuene, Oslo. Hazy nut-brown with a reddish hue, topped by medium, mostly lasting sand-colored head. Pleasantly sharp aroma of bread-crust and husky grains. Also a banana-fruitiness and notes of mild spices. Full-flavored. Caramelly and sharp grainy malts. Medium sweet with a note sourish rye-bread. Pepper tones. Properly hopped. Grassy and earthy hop flavor with a solid bitterness underneath. Healthy body. Fresh and crisp on the palate. Nice sourish malty endnotes. Tasty and well-crafted.
On tap at Amundsen. Dark red/brown color, white inch thick head. Sweet aroma with grain, spice and caramel. Sweet taste that’s very close to the aroma, but with more sweetness. Bitterness is ok, a nice different beer from Ægir chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2011

Smooth beer, fine rye bread flavour, sweet malt, rather dry oaky finish. Not a challenging beer, but it’s nice that they seek out new styles and recipes.
Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body. Spicy banana and wild berry aroma, very rounded and balanced, with smoky mealy notes. Dry earthy fruity stale taste with rye and banana notes. Fizzy mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry resiny earthy smoky aftertaste with roasty chalky notes. Good and interesting, but not great. (0.4l draft at Håndverkerstuene, Oslo.)

On tap at @ Håndverkerstuene. Murky brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma is mild bready and fruity, with a hint of acidity in the background. Flavor is moderate malty, quite fruity, bread, some caramel, yeast and ester. Medium body. There is something here, but all in all quite subdued flavors. After the first few sips this beer becomes more neutral and average. Interesting and easy to drink, but not my favorite.
