Our newest beer is a darker, warmer, smoother mouthfeel beer than the other two. It has a red tinge to the colour and is relatively well hopped.

Erzengel (7889) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 11, 2016
Many thanks to thirstybird for this bottle! Smooth and slightly grainy nose. Nice intense bitter beginning. Fresh caramel, the bitterness gets more intense to the middle, refreshing with caramelly hints in the aftertaste. Full-bodied, round and great!

Navigation Tavern Spring Beer Festival 2016. Clear chestnut coloured ale with a thick creamy head. Light tasting and smooth, with a mild nutty flavour that lingers. It’s more malty in its nose, but the nut influence is still here.

Rune (11341) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2016
500ml bottle bought at Kjeller 5 and shared with Finn Arvid at his place. Rocky beige head that stayed for a while over a close to clear mahogany coloured body. Fair lacing. Roasted malty aroma with fruity hints. Rich taste profile of nuts and dark caramel nicely blended with roasted malty bitterness to a rather long-lived ending. Medium bodied. Brit bitter at its best (Tromsø 28.01.2016).
