Bottle from Meny Oslo City enjoyed at home
Dark amber, big tanned head. Smell of light roast, hints of toast, smoke and fruity hops. Moderate sweet, quite fruity, dark fruits, plums, hint of citrus, toast, hints of smoke. Quite complex body, and at the same time refreshing. Finishes off with a moderate bitterness. Nice stuff

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2014
A tall lacing tanned top, on a deep reddish-amber body. Pleasant aroma of red berries and biscuity malts. Light to medium full. Clean and fresh sourish-bready malt flavor. A good dose of herbal and earthy bittering hops here. Mouth-drying herbal-bitter finish. Very likeable this one, with its fresh malty sourness. [0.5 l bottle purchased at Meny Oslo City]

visionthing (3614) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2014
50cl bottle from Meny Bjølsen, Oslo. Pours hazy dark amber with a tan head. Medium malty aroma with some roasty notes, quite strong hop presence with fruity, citrusy and lightly piney notes. Caramel, herbs and just a hint of smoke. Moderate to medium sweet with a fairly dry and bitter finish with note of citrus. Nice, flavourfull and sessionable.

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This distinctly herbal Amber Ale works in tandem with rye spiciness, leading to earthy bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam laces around the cloudy amber.
-Effervescence is higher than expected.
-Mouthfeel is also drier than usual for the style (which is a good thing, in this case).
-Mild fruitiness is tasted underneath the herbal dominance.
-This is an Amber Ale that is not dialed in, which is nice for a change!
