3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle at the oslo øl og mat fest.
i am sooooo used to drinking shitty lagers from norway. mostly because i cant afford anything right now and beer is way to expensive in this country. so now when i experience what might appear to be an average beer on rate beer, it turns into this great experience in beer drinking nirvana for me.
I thought this beer was quite exeptional.
it lacked a creamy mouthfeel expected with the style, however the coffee taste, the slightly tart black currant flavour the esthery yeast flavours really gave this beer character. I think it is much more then the rating on here, especially if you drink dritøl once a week as a treat.
