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

Shared 500 ml bottle at local tasting. ABV is 4.5%. Dark amber to red colour, moderate off-white head. Pleasant aroma of fruity and piney American hops, also notes of woodwork and lightly roasted malts. The flavour is not too sweet and not too dry, moderately roasted malts dominate, but fruity and piney American hops are also present. Roasty and dry aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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]

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle from #177. Looks quite good in the glass with a deep blurry really dark amber red body under a medium sized light bubbly but lasting beige head. On the nose I get a nice sweet caramel and fruit sweetness. Red apples with a faint darkness in the back. It’s father fruitiness that dominates this and I’m liking it. It has a thin oily feeling in the mouth while it’s soft on the bubbles. Really soft. Nothing to say on the flavors here. Fruity caramel with a good hoppy kick. Red berries and traces of something slightly roasted before its giving me licorice. Dried licorice. Lots of flavor and IMO a really successful amber. It’s really lightdrinkable this. I’m so impressed that I can honestly say that this is something I want to have again. Not often that happens in these kinds of beers. 29.03.2014
