2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaske på Cardinal: skal visstnok være en dubbel, men for bitter. Bitterappelsin kan bare anes. Ineressant, kanskje verdt å prøve på nytt.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Botella after a 10 km little ride, time for a beer: Unclear deep golden colour, huge white head, well lasting. Quite sweet aroma with fruit, yeast, caramel, spice and malt. Good mouthfeel. Sweet fruity and yeasty flavour with orange and malt, good bitterness. Sweet finish. Bit too sweet for me at the time of drinking it in the forest but good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Deep copper, moderate to large foamy sandy head, nice lacing. Malty start, pale toasted malts, has a very minor over ripened dark pitted fruit aspect. Pomegranate and orange peel seem to be minor or non-existant. Light sweetness, a touch salty. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Dusty stale dark pitted fruit like fiish, albeit very muted. Not bad, but very average in my book.

Amber color, no aroma, a bit fruity in flavor and overcarbed.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured dark amber, really no head. Nose is malty, brown sugar, and pomegranate. Really bitter, malty, brown sugar is prime, just a hint of fruits. Good for a brown ale, but was hoping for a little more of the fruit to show. Not bad.
