All ratings displayed on this site are personal opinions, and are not neccesarily to be seen as professional reviews. Some of these beers have been drank in conditions that were far from optimal. If you'd like a professional review of your beer, please contact me. Always interested in meeting up/sharing beers / trading beer . Next to beer, I have a big passion for Ice cider, Mead, and Sherry. Exploring the wine and spirit world asside of this all. Allow me to explain a bit on how I score. These are based on personal enjoyment. Quality & 'in style' are part of that enjoyment, but won't totally make or break a drink, if I myself have a different opinion. Whiskey : Rated on the website 'whiskeybase' ( account Kraddell ) Wine : Rated on the App / Site 'Vivino' ( Account named Kraddel . ) <-- with the dot. Still searching a medium for other spirits, so those aren't online for now. If you know anything, let me know ;) For all mediums, the score is decided like this : 100 : Absolute perfection. Must have sampled it at least twice, and be mindblown twice. 90 - 100 : absolutely amazing. I'd like a drink like this anytime, even if it ain't the cheapest. 80-90 : Very damn good. It'll depend a bit more on the price - but this is probably one to seek out. 70-80 : better than average . Will likely enjoy again if it's priced compeditive. 70 : Average score for anything with alcohol . // 50 : The absolute middlepoint ( pure H2O ) Anything with alcohol beneath 50 is simply not worth drinking (seriously, concider your liver) // 05 : The absolute, final downpoint . Songs shall be written about how this attack to the tastebuds has started a rage within, killing inocent bystanders for no apparent reason - other than the fact my life is ruined by drinking this. On the other hand, it's kinda interesting to try something THIS bad, so you should probably seek it out ! As you can see, I use the FULL scale , and a rating of 70 by myself isn't bad at all !

Pours a fairly unclear blonde. Medium large to large white head. Scent is hoppy, with some passion fruit and citrus taking the top spots. Kveik provides the spicyness underneath. Minor maltyness (white bread). Taste is sharp, intense bitterness (far more intense than expected) , sharp mouthfeel, malty base. Unexpectedly WC like, and still quite balanced. Medium carbo. Kveik doesn't overpower by it's spicyness. No real pine character, but all and all, way different than expected and reminding of a westcoast, if anything. Pleasant surprise !

Pours near-black dark brown. Large off white head. Scent is roasty, chocolate, mild ashy. hops are fairly silent, but provide a herbal character under the roast. Taste is full, roasty but not super smooth, feels a bit ... Weird. Unfresh, somehow. Hops remain mild, green and herbal if anything, with minor bitterness. Just something about the roast / malts that makes me think of aged coockies - which i'm not particularly liking. It's OK I guess, but not convincing. Fairly full bodied and a mild sweetness.

Pours very unclear, warm blonde. Medium to medium small white head. Scent is creamy, but much more sharp and rough than usual in a weizen. hops don't come trough as much as anticipated, and banana (isoamylacetate) is surprisingly mild. Maltyness (breadyness) takes the upperhand, with wheat in the lead. Taste is full, fairly bitter. Banana shines trough, but 'only' at a tripel-level. Wheat is present, but not as OP as anticipated. Not as creamy - but certainly not thin - as other weisses. Hopfen / hops only shine trough in the bitterness, not so much in the aroma. Enjoyable, creative, but not super style technical - if that was even the aim.

Appearance - 7 | Aroma - 7 | Flavor - 6 | Texture - 6 | Overall - 6

Pours unclear blonde, medium small white head. Scent is fairly peach forward, but well mixed in with the hops, and their green, almost vegetal / herbal spicy scent. Taste is full, fairly bitter, lots of peaches, malty backbone isn't lost. Almost a tad acidic (not a sour beer though) Bit sweet. It does seem to match somehow, but it's not really my kinda IPA / fruitbeer. OK for me, but better than OK technically.

6.8
Appearance - 7 | Aroma - 6 | Flavor - 7 | Texture - 7 | Overall - 7

Pours a very hazed, dark amberblonde. Medium sized, fairly creamy white head. Scent is fairly mild, especially for an IPA. Bit malty, traces of hops. Taste is full, very bitter, crispy malts, tad green and herbal - definately not as fruity as NEIPA, or Piney as West Coast. Definately ampes up though, but still very enjoyable, and by no means off. I would have enjoyed more aroma though, this feels rather blend at first, but finishes off with a good bitterness.

Pours a bit hazy blonde. Medium to medium small white head. Scent is light and vibrant citrus, mild maltyness. Not very yeastforward at all. Taste is rather sharp, bit bitter, malty, touch cheesy (isovaleric?) Decent pale ale, but nothing i'd choose again out of a selection.

6.6
Appearance - 7 | Aroma - 6.5 | Flavor - 7 | Texture - 6 | Overall - 6.5

Pours clear (cristal clear) blonde. Medium sized white head. Scent is fatiguingly cloying, sweet, generic industrial NA. maltsyrup, tad hoppy perhaps - but not in an IPA way, only compared to the standards of it's category. Taste is mildly bitter, which gives a fresh idea, but it's fairly sweet towards the back, still - making it cloying, but indeed less cloying than most industrial NA's. Maltyness (syrup) is fairly loud. Medium to medium high carbo over a medium thin body. OK, not competition for the craftbeer NA's, but one of the better industrial ones.

Pours black, no real head. Scent is juicy, full , chocolate, vanilla. Syrup ! roasty JWB goodness. Taste is full, intense chocolate, syrupy. Mild boozyness (better balanced than the base, to me). Vanilla shines trough nicely, but isn't OP . lovely beer indeed, I liked it just a pinch more than the base.
