Serious and persistent foam. The aroma is very enticing aroma hops with citrus touch and light chocolate notes. Taste-wise you have to be a little quick with the taste to capture the underlying flavor notes. It is very intrusive with its citrus hops, and only later in its taste course you sense a lovely caramel malt and a little taste of dark sweet chocolate. But it is its hopping that you will remember. Type wise is the misguided as brown ale, but the label promises a hoppy brown, so it apologize to my mind that it might not hold quite what one expects from a brown ale. I think it is right on the edge of what a beer enthusiast like, then I will be glad to read others’ reviews of this somewhat special brown ale. I think it is excellent, but personally I am inclined probably best for a sweet malt heavy brown ale.

Bottle. An unclear, brown beer topped by a dense, two-finger beige head. There’s a nice grassy, piney hoppyness in the aroma, with a light roasted maltyness. Roasted, grassy and piney flavor with some bitterness. Medium to full body, a bit too carbonated I think. Baking chocolate and some roasted malt in the quite hopppy finish. Well, it’s a decent beer, but it’s far from impressive anyway. 130607

NosirIwont (2186) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle. 5.0%. Best before 18.03.14. Pours a cloudy to murky amber/light brown with a fluffy light tan head. Great lacing. If not for the murky colour, this would be a 5. Citrus and pine hop aroma, a bit candy-like and with a light old hops cheese note; increasing as it warms. Warming also brings out a light malt note, mucking about in the background. Flavour is sweetish and hoppy. Light cardboard note as it warms. Bitter hop finish, lingering light bitter malt note, which takes on a fledgling liquorice note as it warms. Grassy note as well. Palate feels a bit thin and metallic, and there’s too much carbonation for comfort. Overall okay, but the bitterness feels a bit unbalanced, the old hops cheese note is misplaced, and the palate could be better. Also, not very brown ale-like; too much citrus and pine hops and too little malt for the style ...not to mention the name. Fortunately I like a hop profile better than a malt one. 07.11.13.

PapaVillum (734) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2013
50 cl flaske, 5 %, 4. juni 2013. Mørk brun uklar øl møder én med tykt beige skum, som falder nogle cm efter et par minutter. Duftaroma af chokolade og brændte malte; efter nogen tid i glasset kommer en en duft præget af citrus. En rund bitterhed i smagspaletten med lette syrlige noter. Bitterheden præger eftersmagen. En udmærket Brown Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
