2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma has caramel and slight herbal or grassy hoppiness. The flavor has caramel, bread and a nice floral note. The beer is heavily carbonated though, maybe a tad too much, to be honest. Bitterness and a slight sweetness from the malt rounds this beer off.

Kommentar: Dette bryggeriet er blandt Norges kjedeligste når det gjelder ettikett valg, ser ut som alle andre. Nesten umulig å se forskjell på de forskjellige øllene. Huff og huff, en kan begynne å drikke av mindre.

500 ml bottle sampled in 2009. Slightly hazy, dark golden body with big creamy off-white head. Quite strong aroma of malt and yeast. Flavor is sweet malt, toast, some fruit and grassy hops. Medium body and medium lasting aftertaste. Decent and a bit original, still not the best balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle from Fenaknoken, Oslo. This English style pale ale has a dark unclear copper colored body with a nice medium off-white head. Aroma is light fruity and malty with notes of peaches and some fruity hops. Lively carbonation, medium to light-bodied and it has a light oily mouthfeeling. Tastes quite malty with a really nice, yet surprisingly, licorice flavor in the end. Hints of fruits and some yeast. Ends light watery with a mild little bitterness. Yeah, this was really a nice little surprise.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vaaland Spesialbutikken, Bryne. Body is slightly hazy orange, with a big, cloudy white head. Nose is grass, hay and wet leaves. Taste is floral grassy notes with some sweet malts. A bit bland. Inderøy Soddøl is a nice enough farmstead/traditional Norwegian home brew, but not really exciting at all.
