3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Two 500ml bottles (batch 141) bought at Fenaknoken in Oslo and shared with some friends in Tromsø watching Spain vs Italy in Euro2008 on TV-HD. Bubbly, off-white head topping a slightly hazy, orange coloured body. Bready malt aroma with hops behind. Caramel malts in flavour mixed with hints of apples and citric hops. Dry bitter ending. A bit watered mouthfeel, but still a pleasure to drink (22.06.2008).

The aroma has a good malty and hopy flavour, maybe some hints of caramel.
The color is amber, but its a litle unclear.
Litle foam, that disapeared fast.
The taste was a litle disapointing after the wonderfull aroma that it had. But it wasnt bad.
Overall it vas a good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unclear amber of color with a off-white head. An aroma of pine, citrus note and malty - not that bitter aroma. The flavor is with malty notes, bitter hops, grapefruit. Very light APA to me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dark amber color. Hoppy aroma, earthy; leafy and fruity later; very nice. Thin (really too much) but smooth mouthfeel, dry caramel flavor and strong bitterness, a bit too astringent. The final is a bit harsh and dry as well.
