Bottle 0,5l. Cloudy, red/brown colored beer. Aroma is low intensity, but very nice, sweet, tones of honey, forest berries, needle-leaves, citrus and dark malt. Quite full bodied, but silky, light sweet, fruity sour, delicate bitterness. Flavors of needle-leaves, dark malt, cranberries, pink grapefruit, chocolate, slightly coffee. Well balanced, drinkable, tasteful, simply great ale!

0,5 flaske delt med Holmens importavdeling p vr siste aktivititetsdag i 2014: mrk brunlig rubin med gardinskum. Mrk aroma og smak med kaffe, br, sjokolade og furunl. Brown ale er som oftest kjedelig, men denne synes jeg er godt balansert, har lett men atletisk kropp oger meget drikkbar.

Gurthnar (5003) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 11, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2014 Tap at Le Senk. Aroma pine, caramel, lots of spices, indistiguishable. Clear amber to brown colour. Taste is sweetish, caramel, also lots of piney earthy hoppiness, almost to the point of sourness. Gets better with less CO2, and higher temperature. Good, but difficult.
