2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sweet malt aroma with mild citrus notes. Golden with white head that looks like it will stay frothy, but dissapates after a couple of moments. Sweet malt, corn, and mild salt flavour. Light body with mild carbonation and mild bitterness. Drinkable.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
660 ml can sampled@RBNAG 2009, Vatlandsvåg. Golden body with a fast disappearing white head. Light aroma of sweetish fruit and iron. Flavor has a light fruitiness with a metallic bitterness. Drinkable, but boring. Remember this beer as a bit more decent during my holiday in Bali, but it’s amazing what the environment can do with you’re senses.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle. Looks thin and watery when poured with a skidmark of white foam atop a golden amber coloured base. Aromas of soap and hops with some hidden zestiness trying to break through. Thin and watery to taste wiith no real substance or complexity. Might be okay on a surfing safari around Indonesia if there was nothing else to chhose from.
