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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium tan head. Amber body with carbonation and little
particles. Light earthy perfumy eldeberry aroma with spicy
notes. Dry-sweetish mealy elderberry taste with spicy notes.
Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish minty elderberry
aftertaste with spicy gooseberry notes. It’s OK, but lacking in
complexity. (0.5l bottle, wine monopoly, web order.)
