COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Norwegian: Rundt og balansert, mørkt raudt øl med eit preg av nøtter, sjokolade og toffee. Smaken kjem fra seks ulike malttyper, og ølet er overraskande lett å drikke. Passer bra til grillmat og oster.

English: Mellow and balanced, dark red beer with a character of nuts, chocolate and toffee. The taste comes from six different kinds of malt, and the beer is surprisingly easy to drink. Goes well with barbeque and cheeses.

When I tasted this for the first time some years ago, it was at the same time my very first encounter with amber ale as a style. So now I’m meeting an old friend again, after a loong brake... Amber they say, amber it is in colour, with a thin beige head, no carbonation visible in the slightly hazy beverage in the glass, but a nice lacing. CO2 hits your mouth instantly, almost burning on the tongue. Next comes the lovely taste of light caramel and a hint of vanilla and smooths it all out in a pleasant aftertaste, in which the bittering hops enter the stage and introduce themselves. Conclusion: I still love this beer, and if this is what brewmaster Ægir brewed for the old nordic gods Odin, Thor and all the others, I want to go to Valhalla... Now!!

KrzysztofZ (322) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Barwa miedziana, średnia drobnopęcherzykowa piana, nieco krążkująca. Aromat słodowo-karmelowy, lekki diacetyl. Smak wpadający w wodnistość, karmelowy, lekki, goryczki praktycznie brak. Raczej słabo ale da się pić.

Gurthnar (3170) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 27, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2015 Bottle. Aroma caramel, estery, fruity. Light clove. Hazy amber colour. Taste quite thin bodied, with paradoxically lots of caramel, mostly in the finish. Otherwise estery, fruity. Good, but nothing special.

500 ml bottle - Dark ruby red colour, somewhat unusual taste. Not one of the better Ægir range!

On tap at Ægir, pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out crisp bready malt and a slight smokiness. Flavour brings out a slightly smoky bready malt, with a dry crispness. Balanced and has some character with the smokiness. Nice one.

tmrmwel (1316) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 4, 2015
Bottle, as Ægir Onkel Lauritz. Pours amber,with a receding rocky head. Aroma is dark malts, with roasted bread and toffee, as well as some notes of kandi, cocoa and coffee. Light to medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is roasted malts with biscuits and bread, as well as notes of nuts, coffee and wood. Pretty boring.
