2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. Clear amber body with a small off-white head. Light aroma of pale malt with a hint of fruit and caramel. Flavor is sweet light malt, a hint of toast and low bitterness. Medium body and moderate aftertaste. Drinkable, but taste likes very typical like any other average English session ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A clear dark amber to brown beer topped by a small beige head. Malty nose with toffee and some fruity hints. Pretty boring, and that goes for the flavor too. Toffee, some dried fruits and a little touch of fresh fruits. Medium body, dry and softly carbonated. Some bitterness in the end. Overall, pretty boring, but not bad in any way. 131019

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 l bottle, brewed somewhere in England. Body is clear, deep golden brown. Mid-sized beige head fading to a ring of bubbles. Creamed caramel and candied fruits to the nose. HInt of earthy, and gently spiced hops. Healthy body. Fairly dry and fresh malt flavor. Creamed caramel again, backed by a prominent peppery, earthy and light spicy hop bitterness. Fruit tones in a lively, light bitter finish. A decent and drinkable Bitter. Would love to taste it unpasturized from the source.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium amber body with a small white head that laces the glass well. Too sweet butter-ish aroma with caramel in the back. Quite much sweetness in the taste as well, with a light bitter finish. The flavours are far more pleasant than the aroma, with caramel, lightly roasted notes and burnt sugar. I don’t get much of the butter I found in the aroma. Medium to thin body, quite dry.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big beige head. Clear deep dark brownish red body. Roasty
perfumy toffee aroma with peppery caramel notes. Dry-sweet
caramelly toffee taste with perfumy earthy notes. Mid-bodied.
Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish perfumy caramelly roasted almonds
aftertaste with metallic toffee and spice notes. Really nice.
Still has that basic perfumy character, but this one is richer
and sweeter than the others. (0.5l bottle, Meny Strømmen
