2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at brewpub, december 14th 2012. Brown body, tiny beige head. Malty aroma, sweet, diacetyl? Sweet grainy taste, spice, but again Iím thinking diacetyl. It may still be a bit young. Ok bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From tap @Crowbar, Oslo. Pours a clear reddish-brown body, under a medium greyish blond head. Malt drops, biscuits and a candy-like fruitiness to the nose. Notes of Christmassy spices. Light and clean. Fairly sweet and biscuity. Light soapy on the palate. A mouth-drying spiciness linger in the finish. [13.12.12]

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small offwhite head. Clear brown body with light carbonation. Light floral caramelly aroma with perfumy spicy notes. Dry-sweet perfumy fruity soft drink taste with herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, lightly fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish strongly spicy cinnamon aftertaste with dusty roasty rye crisp bread notes. Nice, but a bit artificial and strange. (0.2l draft at brewpub.)

Pours amber with a beige head. Smells of malt, grain and diacetyl, maybe some oxidation as well. Moderate sweet, not at all hoppy, i guess the diacetyl has mascated the hops for now. Moderate bitter finish
