onystrom (1333) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, - JAN 2, 2012
Clear light golden color with okay head. Smokey bread flavor. Slight bitterness, and quite exciting. From my Backlog.

thmsboyd (198) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - OCT 24, 2015
Bottle BBE: 20 Aug 2016. Lightly chilled. Pours a clear gold-amber with medium, quickly-dissipating, loose and patchy off-white head. Medium-low intensity nose with peat smoke, soda bread and a little plasticine, with a slightly metallic tinge. To taste: a light biscuity sweetness is enveloped by a medium smokiness on the top of the tongue, which complements an overall medium-light bitterness. Light-medium bodied with quite a thin, foamy texture. Carbonation is medium-low and the finish is short and gently bitter. A nice peaty smokiness is let down by the bitter base, which is watery and insipid.

gunnar (8404) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle at Busta House Hotel, Shetland. Pours clear straw coloured with a small white head. Grassy hops aroma. Taste is light crisp, moderate dry with some herbal and minty notes, finishes light dry, lingering herbal bitter.

Finn (6824) - Troms, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
Fra kran p Schouskjelleren 12 Apr 13. Lys aprikosfarget. Uklar. Lavt skum. Svak fjsaroma. Smaken blir enda mere fjs. Bare sorgen. Har en flelse av at denne ikke var helt frisk.

allmyvinyl (9808) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2014
500ml bottle from Alesela. With a name like something youd find in a long-unwashed pair of pants. Fortunately, it doesnt look or smell like that. Clear pale gold, short-lived white head. Aromas are grainy and lemony. Taste brings an earthy note. Bit odd this one. Watery finish.

Cask by handpump at Pot Still, Glasgow - clear golden yellow, very thin white head, moderate carbonation, mild malty, bit of fruit, rather unusual, easy to drink

Foffern (1713) - Bod, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2013
On tap at Henriks, Bergen. Has a clear and golden dark straw colour and a small off-white head. Aroma of bubble gum, sweet corn, tropical fruits and caramel. Much of the same in the flavour but is more fruity with hay, pale malt and some hops. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light to medium bitterness. An okay and fruity bitter.

larsga (7375) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2013
Medium offwhite shiny head. Clear yellow body with carbonation. Very light floral aroma with earthy notes. Dry-sweet smoky peaty grainy taste with earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy peaty smoky aftertaste with vinous notes. Weird. Did not really enjoy. (0.2l draft at Schouskjelleren, Oslo.)

Dendroid (6) - Bawtry, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2013 does not count
From a bottle with no best before date. Slightly hazy pale gold, white head. Very slight aroma - can only just pick up a note of heather. Could do with being slightly fizzier. First taste is quite sweet and fruity - black currant. Almost immediately superceded by smokiness. Watery finish. Pleasant but underwhelming - by no means puts me off trying Valhallas other beers.
