yngwie (13194) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle. A clear, dark amber colored beer with a small, off-white head that lasts. The aroma has a pleasant roasted touch, with caramel, or maybe rather toffee, and a balancing citrusy, flowery touch. The flavor is balanced and smooth, not intense in any way, with lightly roasted maltyness, borderline coffee, and resiny hintes and some lemon peel. Medium to full body, dry and softly carbonated. Roasted finish. A tasteful beer that I bet would be nice with some BBQ. 120326

TBone (12469) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2012
Bottled 500ml (PBF, brewed 130412, patch #91)
Deep amber color, small beige head. Caramel, yeast, some hops in the aroma. Light-bodied. Sweetish caramel, toffee, lingering hoppyness in the aftertaste. Light but well-brewed. Very similar to other Norwegian good micros from Nogne O etc.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2014
500ml bottle, brygg #148, 4.7 % abv, beer gift from Ellen. Huge off-white head reduced to a remaining layer. Solid lacework. Near-clear, amber coloured body. Caramel malts and citrus on the nose, mid-dry. Red orange flavours mingled with caramel malts. Roasted bittersweet ending. Medium bodied. Fresh and soft in the mouth. Nice (Shared with Finn, Tromsø 06.02.2014).

MartinT (7746) - 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!

Bottle.

Deep amber color, malty aroma. Bittersweet, nutty. The rather sharp bitterness creeps in, leaving a long hoppy tail. Excellent.
