Bell’s brewery – Oberon Ale

Larry Bell founded The Kalamazoo Brewing Company, Inc. in 1983, but first started selling beer in 1985. The company is based in Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA. The company expanded in 2003 and 2012, and in 2006 they changed their name to Bell’s Brewery. The brewery is today run by Larry’s daughter, Laura Bell.

I bought this beer from a wine shop in Odense, Denmark at the price of 3 Euro for a 1 pint / 16 fl.oz. bottle at 5,8%

Yellow and orange in the colour with a heavy sediment.

Medium sized head that quickly disappears.

Fresh, sweet and flowery hops aroma.

Medium CO2, hoppy taste with a sharp citrus sweetness to it. After taste ends in bitterness. Good balance between sweet and sour.

Unpasteurized and unfiltered. Let it stand for a while before pouring it to avoid large chunks of sediment.

Overall rating 81 / 100

GB – Hvede Ale

The Gourmet Brewery was founded in 2005 in Denmark, today the two originally owners are no longer a part of the brewery and it is owned by the Harboe brewery group.

I bought this large wheat ale from a supermarket in Denmark, it is a 750 ml bottle at 5,0% that cost 4 Euro.

Good looking yellow colour with a bright and white shine to it.

Grand big head with a rough structure and a fine foam on the top.

Perfumed in the aroma, almost too much, slightly wheated tones.

Powerful CO2 along with sweet flower and wheat notes are the first impressions this presents, easy to drink, fresh but with a short finish.

Overall rating 76 / 100

Einstök Ölgerd – Icelandic White Ale

GS6A8636

Einstok brewery opened in 2010 and is located 100 kilometers south of the Arctic circle in the fishing port of Akureyri, Iceland.

I bought this beer at the Salling store in Aarhus, Denmark at the price of 3 Euro for a 330 ml bottle at 5,2%.

Beautiful light yellow and white in the colour.

Medium head with a fine top that stays on the beer.

Sourish and sweet fruit aroma coming off with a medium strength.

Good CO2, fresh and fruity with sweet and light hops in the after taste.
