4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very clear, light gold color. Solid and lasting head of two fingers. I pick up three rings of laces from the first three sips; some chunky spots in between.
I can smell the raw hop immediately upon opening the can. I’m shocked to get mostly caramel malt and cream on the initial smell from the glass. A third whiff brings a nice balance between the two, but it still leans to the malt.
Smooth round start of crystal and caramel (pils?) malts. The hop is mostly bitter and is light in the swallow but lingers well in the aftertaste. This is a very easy beer to drink with full flavors and nothing extreme. The body is rich, particularly for what I’d expect from a lager. This is exaggerated by the low carbonation level.

Dark golden color. Surprisingly little aroma compared to their ales. Rich flavor profile...with nice bitter finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour on tap at HopCat, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big orange, booze, some butter, slight spice, touch of grass. Taste was a mix of grass, biscuit, orange into a bit of booze, butter, slight grain, finishing slightly bitter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A good bear, but has a few weaknessess.
It’s light gold in colour and the beer generates a fine withe foamhat when poured.
The taste is nice, but nothing special. It does have some hits of metall in the aftertaste.
Medium bitter, medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish.
I must say i was quite dissapointed with this beer. my expectations might have been too high after drinking the sculpin IPA the other night.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Chemical and soap-like taste. Maybe the weaker body of a lager is not strong enough to carry heavy and hoppy flavors.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours clear golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, with piney and minty hops. Taste is light sweet initially, with honeyish and caramelly malts, soon turning dry, weak crisp fruity hops, dry medicinal finish, strange beer.

Can 35,5 cl. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Nice citrusy aroma, minty even. But also a strange chemical off-note. Medium body, fruity, oxidized, really chemical and unpleasant in the finish. 301115
