3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, at RBNAG -09, courtesy of Sigmund. A clear, dark amber beer topped by a small, off-white head. Butterscotch, caramel and fruity notes on the nose, quite pleasant considering the butterscotch. The flavor has caramel and some butterscotch, lower levels than in the aroma. Fruity flavors balance the whole thing. Medium body feeling a bit watery, quite dry. Caramel finish. A decent beer, nothing more. 091107

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from bottle@RBNAG 2009 in Vatlandsvåg. A finger of lightly tanned bubbles upon a hazed, reddish amber body. Toffee-ish malts and red fruits on the nose. Clean and rounded malt flavor, on the drier side, with a note of toffee, all-spice and mild bittering hops. Smooth and slick in the mouth. Clean malty, light fruity finish. Well-made, good drinkabilty.
