Bottle from the brewery. Pretty amber-orange, cloudy, lovely head. Caramel, peaches, dried fruit aromas. Fruity and somewhat ale-like, nice bitterness, hops present, more than usual. A bit light. Not a big, thick doppelbock, but a nice new take on the style that is quite enjoyable. Fun beer.

Sample at Haand Festival 2014. Dark copper body with a moderate offwhite head. Grassy aroma with toast notes and flowers. Taste of caramel, bread, faint hops. Sweet malty finish. I find the taste a bit weak for a doppelbock.

750ml bottle, 8.6 % abv, bought at Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo, shared with friends. Fair off-white head leaving spotty lacing on the glass. Clear copper coloured body. Smell of herbal hops, pale malts and dried fruits. Balanced taste of cocoa, juicy malts and dried fruits. Hidden alcohol. Soft carbonated. Fine bodied. Pleasant lager, indeed (Tromsø 23.08.2014).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.75l corked bottle. Pouring this in the glass it quickly tells me that this is quite a malty one based on the aroma. Fills the area with a not excactly unrecognizable malty sweet caramel aroma. It looks nice with a deep amber almost bronze looking cloudy body and it has a good looking really lacing beige lasting head. Nutty and really super malty nose. A ton of caramel with red berries and some ripe fruits. It smells quite good this. Tastes alright as well. It’s a bit lighter in the mouth than what I was expecting/hoping, the carbonation is just above average. Again quite Mallard nutty flavors. Slightly sticky and even a little alcoholic or boozy if you’d like. Malt drops and bread with hints of metal and licorice. Boozy burp on this one. Yeah, it’s a decent one, but still not completely what I want in these kind of beers. 16.04.2014
