Amber with off white head - malty aroma - Good malt body with some roasted malt and some bitterness - Lasting roasted malt finish that is a little bit thin - this was nice

500ml Bottle (Thanks Cunningham) - Dark brown with red tinges. Malt, marzipan, raisins and caramel in the aroma. Caramel popcorn, walnuts, dried fruit, malt and some metallic hints all feature in the taste. Enjoyable and perfectly drinkable, but I am not really detecting the Cascade hops.

I’m not all into this over-caramelled, malty beers. This one smells great, but the taste is not well-balanced in my eyes. The bitterness has lost the battle with the Malt Army - sadly...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle sampled in 2009. Clear amber body with a nice beige head. Nice aroma of citric fruit and caramel malt. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, citric fruit, toast and balanced bitterness. Medium body and decent aftertaste. Naturally a bit lighter in body than the original 5,5 % ABV version, but they manage to capture most of the profile here. A nice beer for the Norwegian grocery marked.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep amber brownish body with a light-brown head that leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma is lightly toasted with dark caramel, mild coffee, tin can and fruits in the back. Moderate to light sweet taste with a sharp metallic moderate bitter finish with faint stale coffee and some unfitting acidic citric notes. Dry and metallic mouthfeel. Nah, not that good.

Flaske innkjøpt på Helgø, Mariero. Etter Sorte Får er det Berentsens beste butikkøl, men polutgaven var bedre. Minner i smak om Hoppy Joe, men HJ scorer høyere med en mer kompleks humlesmak og mer akseptabel pris. Et godt øl som jeg gjerne unner meg av og til.
