Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2014
0.5l bottle from #177. Looks quite good in the glass with a deep blurry really dark amber red body under a medium sized light bubbly but lasting beige head. On the nose I get a nice sweet caramel and fruit sweetness. Red apples with a faint darkness in the back. It’s father fruitiness that dominates this and I’m liking it. It has a thin oily feeling in the mouth while it’s soft on the bubbles. Really soft. Nothing to say on the flavors here. Fruity caramel with a good hoppy kick. Red berries and traces of something slightly roasted before its giving me licorice. Dried licorice. Lots of flavor and IMO a really successful amber. It’s really lightdrinkable this. I’m so impressed that I can honestly say that this is something I want to have again. Not often that happens in these kinds of beers. 29.03.2014

MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This distinctly herbal Amber Ale works in tandem with rye spiciness, leading to earthy bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam laces around the cloudy amber.
-Effervescence is higher than expected.
-Mouthfeel is also drier than usual for the style (which is a good thing, in this case).
-Mild fruitiness is tasted underneath the herbal dominance.
-This is an Amber Ale that is not dialed in, which is nice for a change!

visionthing (5528) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 24, 2014
50cl bottle from Meny Bjølsen, Oslo. Pours hazy dark amber with a tan head. Medium malty aroma with some roasty notes, quite strong hop presence with fruity, citrusy and lightly piney notes. Caramel, herbs and just a hint of smoke. Moderate to medium sweet with a fairly dry and bitter finish with note of citrus. Nice, flavourfull and sessionable.

OleR (4849) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2014
A tall lacing tanned top, on a deep reddish-amber body. Pleasant aroma of red berries and biscuity malts. Light to medium full. Clean and fresh sourish-bready malt flavor. A good dose of herbal and earthy bittering hops here. Mouth-drying herbal-bitter finish. Very likeable this one, with its fresh malty sourness. [0.5 l bottle purchased at Meny Oslo City]

ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 25, 2014
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a deep slightly hazy amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is nuts, nougat, peachy red fruit tones and hints of grains and herbs. Taste is bitter herbs, nutty grain tones and hints of chocolate, grapefruit and mild red berries. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. A quite straightforward yet balanced and tasty amber ale from Klostergården.

larsga (7656) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2015
Big beige head. Clear deep dark red body with carbonation. Dusty earthy roasty aroma with rye crisp bread notes. Sweetish roasty dusty rye crisp bread taste with earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Sweetish syrupy rye crisp bread aftertaste with dusty roasty notes. Very nice. Highly drinkable, full of flavour, clean and fresh. (0.5l bottle, from Meny Oslo City, probably. Batch #206.)

yngwie (17233) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle. A clear, dark amber colored beer with a small, off-white head that lasts. The aroma has a pleasant roasted touch, with caramel, or maybe rather toffee, and a balancing citrusy, flowery touch. The flavor is balanced and smooth, not intense in any way, with lightly roasted maltyness, borderline coffee, and resiny hintes and some lemon peel. Medium to full body, dry and softly carbonated. Roasted finish. A tasteful beer that I bet would be nice with some BBQ. 120326

Bottled. Amber colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is caramel, some floral notes as well as some spices. Flavour is mild toasted notes, some hops, spices and some slight herbal notes. Quite refreshing. Strong crystal notes.

bergstaden (3180) - Røros, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2014
Amber with off white head - good malty aroma with some hints of hops in the back - Nice malt body with some notes of caramel and some hints of piney hops in the back, with a nice bitterness to og along - Finish is malty and piney hops that leaves an olmost dry end - This was nice

Foffern (1982) - Bodø, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a beige head. Malty aroma of bread, oak and some forest floor and dried fruit. The flavour is similar but is sweet at first with bread, caramel and grass and hops in the end. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a light to medium bitterness. A malty and nice ale. Little hops though.
