Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff des-12: som en golden ale med litt krydder. Kort ettersmak. Et typisk session beer, men allikevel bedre enn standard pøseøl.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Copper colour with average white head. Nutmeg and other spices in the aroma but very subtle. Some spiced flavour at first but after it gets watery and unpleasant. Light sweetness and lightly bitter. Light body, oily feel, soft carbonation and a water malt flavoured finish. Did not like it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5 L bottle, purchased @Lørenskog Brusshop. Body is clear deep gold, covered by a low creamy off-white head. Not mush for the nose here, a faint whiff of creamed caramel and some dusty hops. Light malt body. Fairly dry, and not very flavorfull. Lively carbonation, watered down mouthfeel. SOm bittering hopdcan be noticed in the finish. No offs, but utterly unexciting. Probably far better from a well kept cask.
