Nice amber pour. Nose had slight caramel. Taste is almost pure malt. Too much of it to discern much else. Rated 6/23/02

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2009
Bottles. Actually, several. Pours dark reddish brown with a finger of light tan head that fades fast. Some lace. Aroma is sweet, caramel and roasted notes, some burnt sugar. A metallic bitterness saves it from being overly sweet. Body is quite light, a bit too thin. Carbonation a bit too sparkly. Otherwise, it’s not bad. Tasty, but plain.

Beer4000 (4440) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2009
330 ml bottle (2008 4,7%). Clear, dark amber body with a big, foamy beige head. Aroma is light roasted malt and caramel. Flavor is sweet, slightly roasted malt, caramel and a balanced bitterness. Quite light and a short aftertaste, but definitively tasty and nice balanced. This is the best Norwegian wannabe Christmas beer.
