3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle, bought at Lørenskog Brus-shop. ABV is 4.7%. Golden brown colour, slightly hazy when the yeast is poured in, moderate off-white head. Nice fruity aroma of yeasty esters and American hops (Admiral and Amarillo). Soft mouthfeel. The flavour is fresh and fruity, notes of citrus, hints of caramel malts. I did not have the beer with "rakfisk" (= half-fermented trout) like the brewers intended, but can imagine that this beer is well suited to accompany that traditional Norwegian dish. Also highly drinkable on its own.

Bottle. Copper hazy, thick white head. Smells of citrus, flowers and malts. Taste is malty but not with much sweetness. Feel is quite dry. Finish is super hoppy and bitter. Very nice! The american hops work very well here.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium offwhite head. Muddy darkish brown body. Roasty spicy herbal aroma with rye crisp bread notes. Harmonic, clear, and distinct. Dry-sweetish spicy roasty rye crisp bread taste with floral grassy notes. Mild mouthfeel. Clean, fresh palate. Mid-bodied. Dry grassy floral milky aftertaste with spicy notes. Bitter grassy taste lingers. Very nice, not least because of the hops. Highly drinkable. (0.33l bottle, Centra, Oslo.)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Fenakroken. Pours ruddy brown, quite hazy. Interesting milk chocolate caramel aroma. Complex ginger bread and chocolate flavours matched by grassy hops. A slight hint of metal. Difficult to place style-wise. A dry dunkel, maybe? Abolutely worth trying even without rakfisk.

Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet and a mild bitterness. Average carbonation. Dry texture.
Taste: Caramel malty, yeasty and herbal.

Flaske 0,33l mottatt som gave fra Rune. Takker. Gylden på farge. Litt uklart. Pent kremaktig skum som varer en stund. Aromaen er svakt syrlig med innslag av krydder og frukt. Innbydende. Smaken er svakt krydert med overgang til en behagelig fruktig bitterhet. God!
