3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 mil bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Clear deep ruby-copper with a nice light tan head. Meat smoke that is kept in check by rich, caramel/toffee maltiness, some nice fruitiness, not getting any juniper, campfire, I like it. Medium+ body with soft, somewhat sparse effervescence. Less smoke than the nose, more frity and less caramel/toffee, a bit of old apple juice, not quite as interesting as the aroma; dry with limited bitterness and a fairly long, kinda fruity and slightly weak finish with only a touch of smoke. Strong start, less strong finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle in English pint glass. Poured with decent head that settled quickly. Juniper berries contribute nicely to nose and complement the smokey notes for a broad taste. Stirred my Norwegian genes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours chestnut brown with a finger of thin head. The aroma has an immediately obvious smoky touch to it, but not as dominant as in a typical Bamberg Rauchbier. It does smell old wood, like in a traditional woodburning sauna with wooden furnishings, walls and inner roof which has been subject to intense heat and moisture for decades. There's also a hint of herbs, licorice and roasted whole grains. The palate is almost more smoky than the nose. Medium bodied, fairly well balanced with a touch of sweetness and acidity. Lingering wood smoke and smoked fish on the finish.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Floral fragrance. The flavor is floral, wood and bitter. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. Mediocre beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
