Flaske hos Ole Anders des-12: det virker som det er brukt mye bitterhumle men lite aromahumle. God, men ikke minneverdig.

bottle, from pivni rozmanitost. lightly hazy amber with a steady head; aroma of crushed gingernut biscuits and some tropical fruit; chewy texture with some lychee and grapefruit and a strange lurking salty oily quality which i couldn’t quite put my finger on but made me think of pancetta. a bit underwhelming but

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - Incredible aroma considering the age of at least 1 year. Pine and earthy hops with a bit of sweetness. Cloudy orange with a thick head. Very mellow and sweet, orange and flowers, with just a hint of bitterness. Alcohol is very deceptive. Very creamy on the tongue, and so mild I could drink it all day. Not sure if it is because of the age, will rate again with a new one if I can get it.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark maroon with light white head.
Aroma: Aroma of light caramel.
Taste: Nice amount of bitterness, lots of caramel malt, faint pine.
Palate:Medium body, slightly sticky, faint carbonation, lingering aftertaste.
Summary: Almost reads more like a "imperial red" IPA than an IPA. Which is okay, cause I enjoy that.
