3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale brown in colour. Aromas are light malty and sweet with some sulphur. Flavours are fruity, nutty and "Burton" like. Has a touch of the homebrew about it (chemical taste). Not bad though really. "Its all going on!".

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber/copper colour. Fruity and quite heavily hopped, leading to a spicy, tangy character. But its also distinctly sweet and has a sort of stewed, sticky feel that grates a bit and compromises the balance. Plus it has the telltale metallic edge of a pasteurised beer. OK, but could be better. 500ml bottle from Tesco.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle picked up at Centra, Oslo. Dark amber body under a slightly off-white head, mostly lasting with lots of small bubbles and great lacing on the glass. Moderate and rounded aroma of floral hops. Light caramel and fruits in flavour offset by a touch of bitter malts towards the end. A bit watered palate (14.06.2007).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber pour. Nose initially very metallic but opens up with some resiny hop, whiskeyish malt and a sniff of Tripelish fruitiness. Chalky smooth with a hint of chocolatey malt, an abrupt hop bitterness in the finish and a fresh bread afternose. Pretty decent if you give it a chance to warm up a bit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge coarse white head collapses quickly into dark bronze body. Sweet harmonic malty pine needle aroma with roasty metal notes. Taste is sweetish pine needles and resin with dark malty notes, and some metal. Aftertaste is dry resin. Quite good, but nothing spectacular. (0.5l bottle.)

Suprizingly good for tesco, bottled ales. Apperance is better than expected with good lacing, aroma and taste are both reasonably sweet, and found the alcohol noticeable too. alround not to bad, go for it again if theres nothign else.
