500ml see-through bottle bought from bestillingsutvalget, Systembolaget.. Firm, off-white head, slowly vanishing over a bright, copper-amber body. Spotty lacework on the glass. Smell of caramel malts along with dry hops. Fine transition from aroma to the flavours of plain bready malts and delicate hops. Smooth and long-lived bitter tail. Should make a great session beer (The Elvis memorial day, Tromsø 08.01.2010).

Old rating. 500ml bottle. Smooth malty. Easy to drink with a nice grainy round smooth Ale body. Easy to drink, not too much bitterness, nice.

Backlog...................... @ Havregatan 20121028. Bottle from Systembolaget.

Hermod (8517) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2015
50cl bottle. Deep mahogany color, thin white head. Nutty, almonds, marzipan notes in aroma. Flavor has caramel, nutty notes, mild bready notes and biscuits. Sweet, but drinkable.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2015 Possibly the worst IPA in the world. They shouldn’t even be allowed to call this IPA. No aroma, plain caramel taste on water, no hops detectable. Terrible.

Naiwny ten, który myśli, że do czynienia ma z India Pale Ale. Przychylam się do oceniających z ratebeer, że to raczej bitter. I do tego podły... Szybko znikająca piana na miedzianym piwie już mnie zdenerwowała. Zapach jak w kiepskim lagerze, bez wyrazu zupełnie. W smaku bardzo wodniste, metaliczne. Chmielowych nut nie uświadczyłem, słód też gdzieś się ulotnił. Piłem już piwa z krótkim terminem ważności albo wręcz przeterminowane i to takie, których się raczej nie leżakuje. Nie mogę więc w tym przypadku tłumaczyć kiepskiej jakości IPA Export tym, że się zestarzało... Pierwsze znane mi piwo z zaburzeniem tożsamości: IPA, lager to, czy bitter.

Bottle at home from 07 notes picked up at River’s Bend at the time. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale bready malts, light fruit, light florals, mild bitterness, this was really pretty boring. The aroma was almost nonexistent.

vinivini (3147) - Gomel, BELARUS - OCT 27, 2014
Reddish to brown colour, tall head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, grass. Medium body. The taste is well balanced betweem malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness. Grassy note at finish. Not a complex but decent beer.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 500ml bottle poured in a chalice Delicious AND well done BRITISH beer. Nice Art, beautiful color, smell and taste. Not actually an IPA but an authentic British ale. A: First of all: Beautiful bottle art. The beer itself has an attractive and clear reddish color. When poured it has this british thin white to yellow head which dissipates quite quickly due to the characteristic medium-to-low carbonation S: Sweet malts, basically and a nice perfume of hops in the end. Also a bit fruity. Pleasant. T: Pretty much the expected by the nose: Sweet malts and hops. M: Very light body with a delicious bitter end. Medium carbonation D: High. Authentic British ale. Made to be drunk in gallons... :) [ BA Review @ 6/25/2010 ]
