This English Session Beer has a delicious floral hop aroma and flavor. A heaping helping of organic caramel malt and touch of organic chocolate malt give this beer its beautiful mahogany color while organic oats from Bob’s Red Mill velvetize the texture. Smoother than an infomertial host at half the price! 13.5°, 30 IBU

On tap @ Henrik. This is a near clear looking one deep and amber bronze in color while on top, a hefty lacing beige head. It smells like soft red berries, mild English pub and a hint of some sweet malts. Not utterly exciting perhaps, but still quite nice. Tastes nice - and balanced. It has a good oily texture in the mouth and it’s almost creamy on the carbonation. Like the taste. It has a nice sweetness, really mellow and balanced, but not your typical ESB at all. Stronger and more mighty, quite nutty. There’s even a trace of something licoricy. It’s surprisingly tasty this. 23.03.2016

Tap @ Patricks. Unclear amber body with a small off-white head. A bit light in aroma, malt, caramel and hint of berries. Flavor is medium sweet malty, caramel, decent bitterness and hint of some kind of berry like sourness. Medium body and moderate aftertaste. Nothing really outstanding, but rather pleasant and well made.

On tap at Kick. A hazy amber colored beer with a small, dense, beige head. The aroma is on the malty side, with a pleasant piney, grassy touch. Dark bread, caramel and a touch of dried fruits. It’s full bodied and quite dry on the palate, with a soft carbonation. Caramel, bread and some coffee in the flavor, backed by a nice bitterness, some grass and pine cones. Lasting bitter finish. Pleasant and easy drinkable, although not very exciting. 160305

Fra fat på Bøker & børst (planke på krankupp med Ovesen 01.02.16): klar rødlig mahogny med ok skum. De har spart på aromahumlen, men jeg aner noe blomsteraktig og karamell. Veldig god og typeriktig smak med blomster/urter, karamell og en kjeks eller to. Flott balansert bitterhet med lang og fruktig ettersmak. En meget bra start på kvelden.

From tap at Bøker & Børst with JMD 01.02.16. Clear golden amber. Off-white head. Moderate aroma, with caramel, syrup, fine hos and flowers. Similar, but more pronounced taste. Medium bitterness and caramel sweetness is lingering on. Well-balanced with good drinkability.
