3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick, fluffy off white head, golden body, Hoppy aroma of grass and pine needle. Taste of bitter fruit and some caramel. Crisp. Maybe too much carbonation for some.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale Ale stile inglese. Colore ambrato aranciato con schiuma pannosa. Al naso profuma di malto ed un leggerissimo sentore di carruba. In bocca bilanciata verso l’amaro con sensazioni di miele, dattero e pompelmo amaro. Il corpo medio e la bassa gradazione alcolica la rendono molto beverina. Non stanca. Il finale è secco ed aromaticamente persistente. Bevuta in bottiglia.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lyst, bittert uten å miste "rundheten", mye humle, og typisk engelsk malt.
Mye smak pakket i en flaske!

Meget god sammensetning av malt. En anelse mye humle. Alt i alt ett friskt øl som man kan kose seg med:-)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Amundsen in Oslo. Mostly clear amber copper with a soft white head. While the hops have some resin and fruit (orange and peach and such), the malt is grainy and coarse and has a smell of both fried breaking and ketchup / tomatoes, and there’s also a faint bit of metal / copper pennies in there. Vegetables and a bit of metal and some strange graininess. It has medium sweetness level, lingering hop oils and a sourish old toaster bread crumb finish. I feel bad rating this given Haand’s usually high quality, meaning I want to believe this is off, but it’s on tap and is seemingly fresh, just not to my tastes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle, batch 646, brewed 2nd Sept. 2013, 4.5% abv. Bought at Eurospar Langnes, Tromsø.
Pine, peaches and grapefruit peel to the nose.
Off-white moderate head on an hazy dark amber body (ironically pale ale).
Tastes hops with malts and bread-like, with a little dry or mealy feel, and underlying bitterness. Some lemon hints too. Ends with roast, ash, pine, dark dark malt, a little half dry. Overall interesting and fresh, reminds me a little about english bitters.
