Frode (383) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2014 Bottle 50 cl.
Pours nicely, with a fizzy, beige diminishing head. Dark brown colour, with nice red tint. Decent lacing. Lightly roasted malts, some citrus. A bit disappointing finish, and thinner palate than expected from a porter.
Yesterday saw a CAP Black Celebration, which probably puts this one in an undeserving bad light.

Tap at Defectors Weld, Shepherds Bush. Pours a coca cola colour with an off white head. Aroma is pretty toasty, with coffee and dark fruit. Medium to light body. It's lemony, a bit toasty, with a bitter finish. Not much to this, really. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
