Bottle, trade with Cunningham, huge thanx maaan!!
Very nice bottle design. Pours dark amber colored with flat off-white head. Smells malty-sweet, sugary and slight artificial. Starts artificial sweet and musty malty, very sugary sweet and watery. Middle part is watery and very artificial sweet, paired with some caramel. Goes into a caramelly sweetish finish with some musty malts.

Gyllen, mørk farge med et tynt lag med hvitt skum. Lettdrikkelig øl med lite smak, heller ingen framtredende ettersmak

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
0,5L tall brown bottle, bottled late July 2013, bought at Rema1000.
Head caramel-white vanishing fast, body amber copper.
Scents of toffee, sweet malts, and I read caramel malts on the label and understand that’s it, a very sweet smell.
Mild taste of grains, corn, malts, metal, not very similar to the scents.
A smooth and watery mouthfeel. Aftertaste sort of just disappears, with notes of butter. It seems to me, that the brewery has not spent enough attention to all aspects of process, when they are making this dark beer. It is not enough dark, not enough taste, so overall it is like a "polotmawy" that has left the brewery too early.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Was expecting a much darker colour, considering the name of the beer; it’s clear and amber coloured. A fluffy head forms quickly, and dissipates just as fast. It smells of caramel and I’m getting some odd hints of wintergreen and button mushrooms too. The taste is quite sweet ’first impression’ and has a somewhat bitter finish, a lingering nutty aftertaste too. The mouthfeel is a bit oily, and the carbonation is average-to-soft.
This is a macro disguised as a micro, so it doesn’t have the ’crafty feel’ to it, but it’s definitely Grans’s best beer.

Lukter greit, men smaken skuffer. Tynn og tam på smak. Skummet blir borte med en gang. Rødbrun farge.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle. BB 03/12/13. (Rema 1000) Kirkenes, Norway.
Clear dark amber colour with a big fluffy off-white head.
Caramel and toffee sweetness, dryish maltiness, mild nutty dryness and even a touch of hops in the aroma. Surprising balanced and tempting. The flavour is a total disappointment. Blah... Watery. Some dry malt, mild nutty dryness and mild dark chocolatey notes and some sweetness. Very watery. It’s a shame... the aroma was very promising.

Flaske fra rema. Beste ølen fra grans selv om det står lade gaard på etiketten. En helt grei butikkøl
