Deep amber with off white head - Nice malt aroma with some nice hops as well - Some roasted malt notes in the body with some weak hop in the back - thin and a little bit weak in the finish - this was ok

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle sample @ Bryggerifestivalen i Trøndelag. Dark brown body, small white head. Nose is grains, brown malts, hints of nuts. OK, but far too faint. 4
Taste is brown malts, grains and hints of nuts; also a bit wishy-washy and faint. Light body and an overtly fizzy carbonation. Almost half-decent, but...not really.

0,5 l bottle kindly provided by a beer label collector. He got it at the brewery. Clear and sparkling deep ruby-mahogany colored body with a fingerthick frothy cappucino head. Toasted tobacco, leather, molasses and light coffee on the nose. Medium bodied and plentyfully carbonated. Mellow flavors of toasted caramel, light acidic tobacco. Good drinnkability.

500 ml bottle @ home.June 03,2013
Beer from "Meny Oslo City"
Label says best before May 2014.
Beer from a pint glass on my balcony

Aroma is roasted malt,some hop and spices
Descent brown ale, but a bit to thin and weak due to 4,5 ABV i think.

Glowing brown. Properly balanced maltiness, just the right amount of bitter and aromatic hops. Grain, grass and pleasant carbonation. Harmonious, elegant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle bought at Meny Oslo City, shared with Finn back home. Deep dark brown body covered by an off-white head that stays well. Grainy chocolate nose. Taste of chocolate malts, quite nicely balanced by a semi-tart touch that lingers for a while. Smooth in the mouth. Decent brown ale. My rating no. 600 of a Norwegian beer (Tromsø, 13.02.2013).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium beige head. Clear deep dark red body with strong
carbonation. Earthy caramelly roasted sugar aroma with spicy pea
notes. Dry-sweetish earthy roasty caramelly taste with dry cocoa
notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish roasted sugar
and caramel aftertaste with spicy dusty earthy notes. Really
nice and highly distinctive, although very similar to the
rakfiskøl. (0.5l bottle, Meny Oslo City.)

0.5 L bottle, picked up @Meny Oslo City. A finger of coarse tan head, upon a clear ruby brown body. Nice and clean, nutty and light caramelly malt aroma. A whiff a perfumey fruits. Soft malt flavor. Clean, light caramelly, with a fruity-acidic touch. Weak bitterness, not really enough for balancing. Slick mouthfeel. Not very filling. Finishes dry malty with a fine fruit tone. Overall, a pretty decent brown.
