   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 1, 2014
Sampled from a 0.33l bottle @ the brewery. This is a kinda blurry, perhaps light cloudy deep amber almost bronze colored and it has a nice medium sized soft beige top. On the nose it had bit a sweetness and a clear fruitiness. Almost honey-melon sweetness with dark candied sugar and some caramel. Smells quite nice, gentle and nice. This one also has a really round and balanced flavor. It’s somewhat dark caramel infused in the taste with subtle hints of dark fruits and malt drops. Yeah, quite a good one! 15.02.2014

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle at Fastelavn Smagning 2014 @ J&C’s beer palace, Jutland 28/02/14. Hazed dark orange amber with moderate beige spotting/edgework. Nose is over ripened fruit, toffee, spice, straw. Taste comprises brown sugars, dark fruits, toffee, light spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so, doesn’t offer much but isn’t offensive either!

visionthing (2398) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014
Sample from a 33cl bottle at Gjerberg Bryggeri. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Sweet malty and caramelly with hints of dried fruits, vanilla and spices. Some mild, yeasty notes and a hint of alcohol. Medium sweet with some dryness and bitterness in the finish. Quite decent, but a bit to sweet for my taste. (2014-02-15)

Rune (7356) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
Shared 330ml bottles visiting Gjerberg Gårdsbryggeri. Spotty lacing from a large beige head. Close to clear, amber coloured body. Malt-fruity taste with a touch of dark spices. Spiced caramel flavours. Mid-sweet ending, moderate roastiness to it. Dominated by malty sweetness. Alright in smaller amounts (Tour de Østfold, RBNG 15.02.2014).
