1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, 65cl. Thx a lot for bringing me this one Trond! It pours a more or less clear body, yellow in color and with a small, white head. Some, fruity, lemony notes in the aroma, and some cooked vegetables. The flavor is fruity with a little maltyness and some hints of cooked vegetables. Medium to thin on the palate, and lacking big time on bitterness. Well, won’t be a favorite of mine, but it’s not all bad either. BTW, I find it hard to believe it’s really 8%. 110401

Bottled@Mes & Sim’s Wedding (thanks KnutAlbert!). Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grainy, earthy, mildly "sugary" notes (maybe sugar from some vegetable/plant). Flavour is grainy, toffeeish, earthy and quite grassy. Could have been a lot worse.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of KnutAlbert at Mes&Sims wedding. A great moment with Knut booming out: "Come, come - it’s a new country!", which only a beer collector would understand. The beer was extra-ordinary in the way that only lager brewed in a third world country can be. Flavours of pineapple and corn syrup with a dead hedgehog aroma. Fascinating and much more enjoyable than it sounds.

Bottle courtesy of KnutAlbert at Mes&Sims wedding - Cheers Knut!! Pale gold beer, little white head. Crisp semi dry palate. Ridiculous amounts of cardboard with some totally off the wall pineapple cubes. Finishes papery and dry. Laughably bad but also bizzarely drinkable!!

Very pale, low carbonation. No taste at all at first, then the cardboard creeps in. Then a little perfumed sweetness and an edge of alcohol.
