Foffern (1595) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 22, 2016
Bottle at home. Slightly hazy mahogany colour with a beige head. Aroma of leather, toffee, spices, brown sugar, bread, dried fruit and some cardboard. Hints of acetone and cooked vegetables. Surprisingly fruity flavour with peaches and sweet berries at first, then more dry with wood, bread, heather and leather. Short aftertaste. Has a slick mouth feel that feels a bit fatty on the tongue in the end. Medium body and light bitterness. An okay amber lager. A bit light but quite fruity.

djoeye (3078) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 Amber clear body, good dark off-white head, lacings here and there. Aroma; dusty hops, caramel malts, leaves, faint fruits. Taste; dusty mild hops, caramellish earthy malts, floral notes, plum peel, berry peel. Normal on palate, alright carbonation, pilsner’ish body. Finishes still fruity, dusty, earthy, small brown bready malts. I think about amber lager / vienna, tasting this, and it was :-) . [33cl brown bottle, 4.7%abv, BB28.02.15, B@Kjeller5 (7€, 8$50c) T@home]
