is an independent informal site for beer enthusiasts, providing information on specific beer brands tested by guitarist Archaon of the Norwegian black metal band 1349.


The beers reviewed are rated on a scale ranging from 1 to 6 based on the following parameters:

  • Color
  • Consistency/texture
  • Fragrance
  • Elements of taste and aftertaste
  1. Disgusting (rather drink water)
  2. Poor/boring (somewhat drinkable, but nothing more than that)
  3. Ok (meets expectations)
  4. Good (above average and high quality in terms of taste)
  5. Splendid (top notch; a joy to consume every drop)
  6. Out-of-body experience (absolutely supreme taste and presentation)

GalaxyIPAWith it’s deep mature aroma and eye-catching golden colour, this seems promising from the start. A mild hint of bitterness is present throughout, from the very beginning- but in a subtle way that in no way is percieved disturbing in any way. Under this layer, you’re granted a classic great IPA with an even balance of the ingredients. This gives plenty of room for both the fruit as well as the hops featured. Nothing but great.
