2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2010 A bit dissapointing beer. Amber colour with a slight tan head, almost no aroma. Malty, yeastie, bit fresh, some light watery/bitter taste but drinkable in small quantities, lightly sour. Average norwegian "bayer øl". oily feel, average carbonation, kind of sour after taste.

33cl bottle from Meny. It poured a dark amber colour with a big white creamy head that settles down slowly in the glass. The aroma smells of malts and caramel. It has a sweet flavour that tastes of malts and water. It has a short and bitter aftertaste.

Courtesy of Yngwie. It’s a red-brown beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt and nuts. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of roasted malt, nuts and hints of licorice. It’s a nice surprise – it’s a nice Bayer!
