There is a huge amount of excitement in BeerNorway HQ today. A short while back This Beer Blog and myself decided to trade some “local” craft beers. I sent him some Norwegian beers, and he sent me some Scottish ones in return.

I haven’t had any of these beers before, so I’m really excited to start the reviews! The five beers in the photo above are, from left to right:

- Cromarty Red Rocker
- Fyne Ales Hurricane Jack
- Tryst Carronade Pale Ale (Sorry about the bottle facing the wrong direction)
I will review all these beers in the days to come!
