3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a ruddy yellow-orange, with some nice white head. Effervescent and moderately clear, has a light fruit aroma, apples, pears, brown sugar and malt. Wonderful clear and crisp flavor. Dosent water down, improves as it warms and has a nice soft malt flavor with lots of grains. Mildly spiced, no alcohol present. Probably one of the best light beers I've had. Subtle, well balanced, no earth shattering flavors, but hey it's a low gravity, low abv vienna.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Lerĝy Mat, Bergen. Pours a clear, bronze body with a small, quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is caramel and slightly roasted malts with some faint sour notes. Taste is mildly roasted malts with hints of caramel and grassy hops. Some metallic hints. Well balanced, but ultimately a pretty boring Christmas beer in my opinion.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super malty flavor and aroma. Grainy tasting after you get through the malt shock, then sort of molasses-y and woody. Grainy palate. Decent, but Im not overly impressed.

Bottle @ Scooper Tasting in Ulfborg. Pours clear darkish amber with airy off-white head. Dusty aroma with notes of hops and malt. Rough, estery, and sweetish, malty flavour. Sourish overtones. Hoppy notes. Rather unbalanced and not very interesting.
