2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home
Amber red, big offwhite head. Smells of elderflower, almost like perfume, burned malts, bread and some citrus hops. Light to moderate sweet, bread or biscuit, medium bitter, some earthy and citrus hops. Quite odd experience this. The elderflower is fuzzing it all up; not a good idea in my book. Without it it could easily gain a higher score

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Drukket hjemme 9 Des 12. Lys gylden. Litt uklar. Brukbart tett skum som varer en stund og fester seg litt til glasset. God fruktig aroma. Minner om overmoden aprikos. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken i samme retning som smake. Blir etterhvert litt syrlig. Godt øl men litt uvariert.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5l bottle. I worked with a guy caller Urban once, but no time to dwell about that: This is a light blurry nutty-bronze one with a medium sized light bubbly off-white top. On the nose I get some traces of broccoli, earth, urine, pale malts, raw metal and some floral tones. Non extreme. The taste has some sweetness in it. Corn-like sweetness actually. It’s thin oily to watery on the mouthfeel with a average carbonation level. More earthy, some buttery tones in the taste also, a soft bitterness appears in the finish and aftertaste next side with something floral and almost herbal. All in all this was in my opinion not much more than a dull lager added some herbal flowers. Not to memorable, and I don’t feel the need to stock up with this one. 16.11.2012

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with ClubGonzo. Has a dark hazy amber colour, pretty murky, and a medium light beige head. A special aroma of sweet flowers (the elderflower?), and is else fruity with lots of malt, along with sweet berries and spices. Feels fresh. In the flavour I sence again the nice mix of flowers and fruit with a touch of cardboard, forest and ripe gooseberries. The mouthfeel is creamy and rich, and has a very light bitterness. An interesting and easy-drinking beer.
