Palme (3605) - Bergen, - OCT 2, 2012
0.4l can @ Bergen Airport. Clear caramel-brown with a really creamy off-white head. Smells light sweet, mild ashy, some faint fruity tones. Not horrible, but not fantastic. Itís soft on the carbonation and it has a mild oily mouthfeel. Light sweet caramel flavors also, some faint cigarette tones with a soft bitter and quite smooth finish and a flour-ish both semi dry aftertaste and really watery and thin. Easy drinking, but flavor wise this has never been a favorite of mine. Nor this time. 05.08.2012

Ikke nogen særlig god oplevelse. Heller ikke dårlig - men troede måske den havde mere karakter. Meget let krydret pilsner...

rayaron (530) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - APR 18, 2015
Draught at Porter & Sons, Tel Aviv. Clear copper with small creamy off-white head. Light aroma of caramel, some fruitiness with hints of milk chocolate and butterscotch. Flavor of fruity hops, some graininess with hint of caramel and butterscotch. Soft carbonation, light to medium-bodied. Quite easy and fun to drink.

Pounder Nitro can picked as part of the Guinness Winter 8-pack. Pours clear amber with creamy tannish head. English yeasty fruitiness with good dark toast. Okay... Just not my cup of tea.

sudomorph (806) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
440ml can from the back of the fridge. 130412. Pours a clear caramel with a one finger, white head that lasts forever. Aroma has smooth notes of caramel, bread, cereal grains, and traditional mild hops. Taste is balanced but probably faded. Hints of grain, caramel, and faint hops. Low-medium body with a low, nitro can carbonation. Clean and a bit watery in the mouth. Overall, considering I don?t know how long it has been in the fridge, not bad. Mild caramel and grains.

tbonde (100) - DENMARK - MAR 27, 2015
Draught@Oslo airport bar. Pours a lovely clear dark amber with a finger of thick, creamy head. Very slight aroma of malt and winegum. Low to no carbonation. The head is all this beer has as I tried to find some kind of tast in the watery texture. A little bit of sweetness and hardly any taste of neither malt nor hops. Havenít had this beer for years and now I remember why. For poseurs who want to be seen drinking beer but actually donít like malt and hops.

On tap. Pours brown with a head that only slowly gets to the surface. Very sticky. Gives a creamy texture to the beer. Taste is watered down, almost nothing left. Bitter. Disappointing.
