3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Batch #620, ABV is 5.5%. Brown colour, large beige head. Strong aroma of moderately roasted malts, brown bread and chocolate, hints of fruity hops. The flavour is both smooth and full of character at the same time: brown malts, lightly roasted malts, caramel and chocolate without being very sweet, all balanced by just the right amount of hops. One of the best brown ales I’ve had.
