Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2013
From a 0.75l bottle @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a near clear dark brown one with a not so good looking beige islandy top. The nose is light acidic and sweet. Some red sour berries, licorice and dark malts. Somehow Iím really liking this aroma. Great drinkability. Lovely flavors, light acidic with both dry licorice, red wine barred notes and some chocolate paper. Acidic and lasting finish here. Itís not sour, but woody acidic with a strong sweetness thatís balancing it. 03.05.2013

Poured a amber color with khaki head. Aroma of malt, smoke, maple. Flavors match the aromas, with a slightly smokey aftertaste. Intriguing beer...
