Can at home. Pours dark brown with small to medium white head. Aroma is quite bland... mainly sugar and hint of roasted malts. Overtly sweet for my liking and watery, but still quite drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Look; tan-fawn head and dark brown body. Aroma; malted candies, sweet brown bread, kvassy notes, berries, actually some hops too. Taste; dark malts, dark caramel, raisins, berries, grassy hops - leading to a fruity malty dark finish. On palate soft. Overall; alright, not bad at all.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Boks 0,5l fra Kilpishalli. Dyp mørkebrun. Lavt skum med litt lacing. Beskjeden maltaroma. Smaken har antydning til røstet malt men ualminnelig kjedelig.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma is not much really. A bit of dark maltiness. Taste is very bland too, like carbonated water with a bit of maltiness. Inoffensive. Alright palate. Funny how flavorless it is.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can 50 cl. Pours brown dark with big brown white head. Really metallic taste at start, probably from the can and the coldness. Not a good start one might say. Notes of roasted malts, caramel, bread. Pretty bland taste. Needs much more character.
