2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. There’s lots of microfloaties in this one, it’s hazy and dark orange in color. A small, dense, light beige head sits on top. The aroma is fruity and lighlty smoked, ham notes and some bread. Caramel hints in the flavor, along with smoked ham, some bread and tropical fruits. Lacks on bitterness I think, but as it’s brewed to be a beer drank with food, I guess it’s ok. Medium body, rather sweetish. Fruity and smoked finish. Drinking it without food isn’t much interesting, never tried it with food. 121110

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle from #411. It’s a gusher! Saved by my kitchen sink. It has a nice deep peachy amber body packed with microscopic floaters floating about and a big, lasting light khaki-colored top. The smell has a smoky sweetness with caramel, red amber malts and a soft fruity touch as well. Not bad. It’s average to softly carbonated with a slick mouthfeel. Oh, really drinkable this. Soft red berries with a gentle caramel sweetness before a swiff of smoke finishes it off. There is also a hint of something acidic hidden in between the other flavors, and it also has something that reminds me of chocolate paper. A nice gentle tasty Italian. 19.10.2012

Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Deep murky orange body, massive cloudy off-white head. Nose is caramel, molasses, hints of nuts and banana. Taste is mild caramel, grains, chocolate and not much else. Smooth mouthfeel. And very, very boring.
