Holmen1 (6472) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2013
Flaske på Kanal Bodega, etter Tannhäuser mai-13: først en flaske Chrisitanhavns pa, så denne. En perfekt avslutning på en stor kulturopplevelse i operaen. En overraskelse å finne så gode øl på et såpass snusket og bråkete sted. Kanskje det er bedre her på formiddagstid? Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2013
A golden amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a grassy malt aroma with vinous notes, honey, oxidized. In mouth, a smooth biscuit malt with light maderization. probstblueribbon (4088) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle shared by Lubiere, cool, tulip. Deep orange amber with lots of floaties and no head. Lots of oxidized fruits, very old and tired. Medium body, flaccid. Oxidized fruit, old and tired; dry, limited bitterness, tired fruit finish. Probably nice fresh. MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle at NS tasting. Blond hazy pour, white head. Aroma is yeasty, malty, not so interesting I’m afraid. Flavour is also quite dusty, yeasty and grainy. It drinks quite smooth tough, but overall a quite boring brew. Well made.. but boring.. deanso (10101) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - MAR 12, 2013
50cl bottle shared in the train home.
Hazy blond pour. Some honey. Nice brew.
kermis (14553) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle shared as a road soda after the De Molen tasting. Pours cloudy golden with a tan head. Aroma of malt, grain, wort, oats and light caramel. Flavour is light moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle, shared by deanso in the train on the trip back from the monthly 2nd Tuesday tasting @ De Molen, hosted by dEnk. We can’t decide on this brew being murky, cloudy or hazy. Aroma is very grainy, wort and some slightly spicy hops. Flavor is quite sweet, watery and grainy. Quite boring brew Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2013
0.5l bottle. This is a light blurry golden one packed with microscopic particles floating about and a small, bubbly and light side clinching off-white top. Smells light floral with traces of caramel and pale malts. A bit on the sweet side. It’s average on the carbonation level with a light oily mouthfeel. More floral on the flavor, light thin sweet caramel-graininess and flower water. Then there is a decent grassy bitterness that’s lasting before I get tones of wet cardboard. A bit almost metallic in the aftertaste. Not a favorite, but it’s definitely drinkable. 28.11.2012 ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a dark golden body with a small white head. Nose is grass, heather, herbs and wet leaves with hints of baker’s yeast and grains. Taste is floral honey tones, grains, wheat tones, citric peel and hints of herbs and grass. Medium body and carbonation. Refreshing enough, but nothing spectacular. A nice session ale, on the other hand, is never wrong. LarsEngen (367) - Sandvika, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2012
50 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Pours amber with a small long lasing white head. Aroma of orange, citrus and hops. Quite thin but with a good balance of bitterness and sweetness. Ok beer on a hot day.
