COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet, caramel aroma. Clean, crisp taste, and an almost dry aftertaste. Interesting and complex. Very flavorful with strong malt presence.

I think the commercial description is pretty accurate. Deep copper color. Definate sweetness. Smooth finish. Not a huge fan though. Something just didn’t work for me.

Very light aroma, sweetness and not much else discernible. Sweet flavor, hints of oak and malt, but pretty light for a winter. Not bad, but nothing special.

Gr0ve (2115) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2006
330 ml bottle. Clear dark brown. Well carbonated. Throws an average head. Pleasant aroma, but could have had much more hops and more malt sweetness. Lacking in body, which makes the beer taste watery. Some mellow notes of roasted malts. Disappointing.

Can (courtesy KnutAlbert I think), May 2008. 4.7% according to my notes. Copper colour. Chocolate malt aroma. Some cardboard notes. Relatively dry. Rather thin mouthfeel. Not entirely unpleasant but nothing special.

A brown coulored beer Aroma; Some corn on the nose, maybe some caramell? Flavour; Same as the aromas, with some hops and caramell. Too high carbonation

"2010 edition", bottle from local store. Pours a brown brew with an off-white head which quickly disappears. Nose is sweet. Aroma has hints of licorice, dark sweet fruits, malt. Good mouthfeel, but slightly watery. Nice balance, not sickeningly sweet. Pretty good "grocery store juleĝl", but not very exciting.
