3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml draught at the brewpub, fine partner with the freshly made kebab. Crystal clear amber body, bubbly head, good lacing. Smoked malty nose, semi-sweet. Bit of cocoa powder flavours, nicely smoked, leading to a rather sharp, malt bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pleasing (Oslo 02.09.2013).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub.
Glowing amber. Nice hybrid. The hoppy pale ale intervowen with smoke malt. Like a wood on fire. Fruit, bacon, grass, resin. Fine, but this is a beer where you enjoy one glass and then move on to somethibg else.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
5.2% 40 NOK for 0.2cl at the brewpub. An orange gold pour with a slight beige head bodes well for a pale ale. The smell is sweet citrus, the taste is pretty good a sweet, slightly spicy, citrus, fruity flavor. I am getting a candy vibe from it, maybe a Christmas feel... I like it.
