3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared by deanso in the train on the trip back from the monthly 2nd Tuesday tasting @ De Molen, hosted by dEnk. We can’t decide on this brew being murky, cloudy or hazy. Aroma is very grainy, wort and some slightly spicy hops. Flavor is quite sweet, watery and grainy. Quite boring brew

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5l bottle. This is a light blurry golden one packed with microscopic particles floating about and a small, bubbly and light side clinching off-white top. Smells light floral with traces of caramel and pale malts. A bit on the sweet side. It’s average on the carbonation level with a light oily mouthfeel. More floral on the flavor, light thin sweet caramel-graininess and flower water. Then there is a decent grassy bitterness that’s lasting before I get tones of wet cardboard. A bit almost metallic in the aftertaste. Not a favorite, but it’s definitely drinkable. 28.11.2012

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a dark golden body with a small white head. Nose is grass, heather, herbs and wet leaves with hints of baker’s yeast and grains. Taste is floral honey tones, grains, wheat tones, citric peel and hints of herbs and grass. Medium body and carbonation. Refreshing enough, but nothing spectacular. A nice session ale, on the other hand, is never wrong.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Pours amber with a small long lasing white head. Aroma of orange, citrus and hops. Quite thin but with a good balance of bitterness and sweetness. Ok beer on a hot day.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours orangey golden with a little off white head. Diffuse malty aroma. But the taste is all fresh malt, with some good cereal and biscuit notes, with some floral overtones and maybe a bit of herbaceousness from the hops. I kind of agree with the brewery’s description- this is not an extreme beer by any means, just good raw ingredients, nice and drinkable. I like this style - it makes a nice break from hopmonsters.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Sample at Amager Bryghus, thanks!) Pours a clear golden with little, off-white head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is wheaty/grainy with barnyard notes. Oily texture, medium body with soft carbonation and a slightly tart finish. Taste is malty with tart and straw notes. Not really my style.

Hazy gold - amber beer. Neutral to slightly soft palate. Aromatic malt with butter and caramel. A little fruity hop coming through. Minerally crisp and semi dry finish. Hangs together reasonably well.
