3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Uklar gylden brun med lite beige skum, søtlig litt surøllukt. Smaker også litt surt og søtt. Lite kullsyre og bitterhet. Mulig feil på flasken, men jeg er glad i surøl så det slår eventuelt ut positivt.

Flaske på Cardinaltreff april-13: bjørnen er i vinterdvale. En tynn og intetsigende dnukel. Savner innsatsvilje her.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy, dirty-looking, medium brown body with a frothy, short-lived, light-brown head, some lacing. Moderate to faint roasted aroma with traces of caramel and fruits, but there are also some unpleasant yeasty hints. Light sweet taste with a very light bitter finish. The most obvious taste however is a misplaced light sourness and a disturbing metallic mouthfeel. The flavours are pretty faint: lightly roasted notes, caramel, yeast and tin can. The body is light and watery, quite lively carbonation. Some nice flavours, but they are too faint, making this a pretty boring and rather unpleasant brew.
