3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
on tap at Grunerløkka Brygghus. Pours mellow golden color, bittersweet hops, decent malty taste with a good citrus finish. Not as good as NØ’s contribution to GB, but still a very enjoable beer

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Grünerløkka Brygghus.
Well hopped, full maly beer, yet smooth enough to be a session beer. Easy drinking, but there is enough flavour here to lift it way above, say, the Kilkenny league. I’d call this a bitter rather than a steamer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big beige lasting head leaves coarse lacing. Hazy amber body. Mild caramelly papery aroma. Dry-sweet roasty papery floral taste with caramelly notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel, a bit mealy. Bitter citric floral aftertaste with burnt rye crisp bread notes. Nice, but a bit sharp and harsh. (0.33l draft at Grünerløkka Bryghus, Oslo.)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the grunerløkka brygghus. Pours a deep amber with a nice foamy head. Looks damn inviting. Nose is malty with notes of bread, yeast, and some slight toasty nuttyness. Taste is a long the same lines with strong malty accents balanced with a fair amount of anonymous hop bitterness. A good session beer.
