3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big slightly coarse beige head rises out of the glass. Clear
red-amber body with strong carbonation. Dusty wooden roasty
aroma is very weak, with resiny notes. Dry-sweet resiny citric
taste with metallic notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel with
slight astringence. Dryish minty resiny roasty aftertaste with
wooden spicy notes. It’s OK, but a bit harsh while the flavours
are rather subdued. I doubt this is what they tried to do. (0.5l
bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark copper with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows nutty malt, caramel, golden syrup, soft spicy hops and brown sugar. Pretty rich and moreish.
Similar rich flavours, lots of nutty malt and caramel followed by spicy hops and an assertive bitterness.
Body seems a bit thick, and there’s not enough carbonation.
Not too much of a hop presence, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Bottle. Copper with a large beige head. Gentle aroma is bready with light toffee, blackberries, grapefruit. Sweet with caramel, berries, pears. Dryish at the end with a little bitterness. Would have guessed this a 5.5% ESB, but it’s tasty enough.
