4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample from bottle. Deep reddish brown colour, moderate off-white head. Okay beer, mildly roasty character in both aroma and flavour, but nothing to "elevate" it much above average.
