3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33l bottle. This one pours a near clear, quite good looking I have to say, warm and almost glowing amber colored body with a small quickly lacing off-white top. On the nose it’s not as interesting as the looks to be honest. A bit boring. Sugary sweet with traces of nuts, red fruits some green apples, quite a fair amount of dust and dry hay. Well, it’s not horrible but a but a bit meh. In the mouth this one has a quite lively carbonation level wrapped in a light oily mouthfeel and it’s tasting a lot better than what I was expecting based on the nose. A good amount of interesting red fruits, lingon berries and papaya. A malty light caramel sweetness makes it a tad sweet perhaps. It has also something light roasted over it. Ends with butter and butter caramel on the tongue. Well, it’s drinkable, not very good smelling and definitely not something I need to have again. 21.03.2014

On bottle from Vinmonopolet ( on order). Copper colored, good foam. Aromas of malt, drid fruits: medium intensity- also light hop notes. Medium body & complexity. Ok bitterness & balance. Enjoyable

Guère plus intéressante que sa petite sœur blonde. Bière de soif sans intérêt particulier.
