Fra fat på Cardinaltreff juni-13: lett og kort,med lite smak. Kveldens andre skuffelse fra Ægir (den første var Kvase Kölsch). Første gang at jeg ikke er begeistret for øl fra Ægir - de har til nå alltid levert i øvre skikt.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Clear reddish amber color with a big off-white head that quickly settles. The nose is very fruity, loads of red apple, sweet malts, orchard fruity notes. The taste is quite sweet and simple, malt-focussed. The palate is light, but quite creamy. The carbonation’s quite soft. Overall, a really nice, orchard lager. Simple, tasty.

7th November 2011
On tap at Cask Pub & Kitchens Norwegian Beer Festival. Clear amber beer, not much of a head. Crispish palate but it turns much softer and creamier. Minerals and super mild hop finish things up. Decent but very much like the Raller but without the apple.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle and tap. Pours with a relatively transparent amber color, culminating in a medium-sized, well-retained light tan head. The lacing is sticky and fairly tight. The nose is mostly malts with hints of citrus. The taste is malty and sweet, with a transition to a lightly hoppy bitterness in the finish. Certainly not the best from Ægir, but it’s worth a try and I’d probably try it again.
