Beer testing at Amundsens

At Amundsen Bryggeri & Spiseri we was invited to a beer test on Friday. 10 cl x 4. (and more if you want to find out more of the intriguing selection of beer).
I tested 4 of the recommended draft beers.
From left:
Nøgne Ø´s Saison 5.2% with 10% weat grain: Nice
Amundsen´s Ocean with taste of Greapfruit. Strange.
Ægir´s Rallar Amble Ale 4,7%. The best in test.
Haandbryggeriet´s Norwegian Wood 6.5% with juniper which tasted like burnt wood or smoke. Very strange.

Usuallly I drink a Hansa Bayer, but the quality Rallar Ale may lead to a change when ordering next time I make a visit to Amundsen.
The restaurant has a good kitchen and I can recommend:

Chicken drumsticks with
blue cheese dressing

A herring plate: blend of heering and egg,
onion, cheese and two types of herring.
Rye bread on the side.

500 grams of mussels steamed in
Gueze beer, served with French fries
and rouille on the side.

Klipfish-loins served with cherry tomatoes, French
beans, potatoes, chorizo and beer based gravy.

Beer braised chicken served with creamy asparagus,
carrots cocked in beer, potatoes and veal gravy.
