Medium yellowish beige head. Clear deep dark red body with
carbonation. Roasty earthy crisp bread aroma with cereal and
flowers notes. Dry-sweet earthy roasty toffee taste with grainy
rye crisp bread notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel.
Dryish earthy roasty grainy aftertaste with dusty wooden burnt

highly drinkable. (0.5l bottle, Meny StrÝmmen Storsenter.)

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared with ClubGonzo. Has a clear reddish brown colour, and a small off-white head. Fine roasted notes in the aroma along with nuts, coffee, leather and some cocoa. The flavour stands out like a light version of the same with a small dose of vanilla. Mouth feel is watery and light, with a light bitterness. An approved bitter, but perhaps a little too light.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light brown medium head, smells of thin coffee and caramel. Taste is like a light brown ale with sweet notes of vanilla and caramel. Aftertaste of coffee grounds. Not a bad beer considering it is a store bought beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Meny Manglerud enjoyed at home
Pours brown, quite dark brown in glass, beige head. Smells of roast, dark fruits, nuts and some hops. Moderate sweet, quite fruity, some yeast and dark fruits, a touch of roast as well. Moderate bitter, earthy hops. A nice ale, i like the roasty touch and the fruity aroma. High drinkability factor too; but a bitter? not sure about that

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle. This is a crystal clear deep amber-red one with a small quite disappointing off-white bubbly top that quickly sticks to the sides of the glass. The aroma has tones of bitter cocoa, sweet malts, red fruits and some dark caramel. It smells quite alright this. Itís average on the carbonation and the mouthfeel is quite thin and watery. Nutty-bitter flavors with more dry cocoa powder, some watery sweet fruits and a soft earthy bitterness towards the finish. Not to impressed to be honest, but it does not taste bad in any way. Wish it was a bit more challenging. 21.02.2013
