On tap at the brewpub. Itís a clear, amber colored beer with a dense, finger-thick beige head leaving curtains. Cloves, caramel maltyness and dark dried fruits in the aroma. Far from super-complex, but nice indeed, which goes for the flavor too. Itís semi-sweet on the palate, with a balancing bitterness and the same dried fruits, clove-like spice and caramel malts found in the nose. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. A nice one, with too much cloves, but itís quite smooth anyway. 141127

Clear mahogny colored body. Small blond top. Prominent tea aroma with a whiff of ginger and toasted malts. Light to medium body. Taste is mild caramel malts, lots of tea, spices in general with ginger in the lead. Spicy, lingering bitter aftertaste. Good stuff. [Draft at Crowbar, 07.02.14]

On tap at Crowbar. January 28th 2014. Amber body with a near white head. Aroma of spices, chai tea, flowers. Taste of malt, tea, fruity hops, ginger. Discreet bitterness, spices and tea dominates. Good usage of the tea, I sometimes find Crowbars beers spice additions a bit careful, thatís not a problem here. Quite nice!

Palme (4120) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 14, 2014
On tap @ Crowbar. A cloudy dark amber almost Cola looking one, only a soft lacing white little head on top. On the nose I get nice tones of cardamom, lavender and tea. It has quite a comfortable and nice nose this. In the mouth itís mild oily with a soft prickling carbonation level. Again the lavender and cardamom sticks in the taste. I get some cinnamon with traces of licorice and heather. Lots and lots of spices that all cooperate in harmony. Really good. Would not mind more of this. 14.02.2014
