3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 8C. Amber with a large dense cream head that lasts. Aroma of lemon zest, grass, nectarines. Taste has some caramel sweetness, almonds, flowers and lemon. Clean bitter finish doesn’t hang around. Hop aromatics are fresh but simple and the beer is tasty but rather anonymous.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home from Barley Wine, Copenhagen. Dark amber pour with a small white head. Plenty of fruity, piney hops and sweet malt character in the nose. Fairly robust earthy hop bitterness in the flavour that dominated proceedings somewhat. Caramel malt presence was rather smothered meaning that the balance was a bit skew whiff. Drinkable enough stuff, just not earth shattering.

On tap at Olympen. Dark golden color, white head that sticks to the glass. Fruity aroma, plenty of hops, grassy taste with citrus and some malt. The end is as bitter as it gets without going extreme. One to enjoy!
