0,33 liter flaske 4,7 prosent. Fin farge og god smak. Kan anbefales til personer som liker brown ale, samt personer som ikke har prøvd det ennå. Ikke verdens beste øl men vel verd et forsøk, samt et øl man kan drikke etter en pilsner eller lignende øl med "lett smak".

Bottle in Grebbestad. Clear dar amber beer with a small white head. Dried dark fruits, malty aroma with some nice leather notes. Hoppy, malty flavour, a bit bitter. Nice beer :-)

gunnar (5267) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2011
Bottle from Vaaland, Bryne. Pours clear deep nutty brown with a big off-white creamy head. Aroma of dark caramel, earthy malts and light hops. Taste is surprisingly bitter, but with a good malty base to support it well, lingering bitter aftertaste, this is a new hit from Lervig, this is not too extreme for the ordinary lager consumer. Very refreshing and moreish.

Never tried a Norweign beer and in the oil town of stravanger - I also purchased at @ Irma, close to Nørreport, in Kobenhaven. Pours rich chestnut brown. Aroma has caramel, mocha, some almond. Good carbonation, fair dry and a little bite mouthfeel. Flavour has light watery notes, leaving some metallic notes. Good nuttiness with toffee malts. Light hops with firm bitterness. I like this brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Unde (351) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2013
Mahogany brown and small head but leaves some lacing as descending. Some roasted flavors coming to my nose with nuts and sweet chocolate. Taste has some rye bread type of flavor and sweet chocolate and nuts. Surprisingly good especially after having warmed up a little.

abemorsten (2746) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2011
Shared bottles 21st of July at the beer release on Gladmat 2011. Clear, deep mahogany red with a creamy, capuccino colored head, two fingers thick and leaving a fair lacing. Herbs, barn yard, malty notes and caramel on the nose. Bitter, toasted, sweet mouth with light chocolate, caramel and notes of hay. Heavily hopped with a long, bitter finish leaving a dry tongue. Medium to full body. Smooth.

Sigmund (5089) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2011 Shared bottles at the release, Lervig’s tent at Gladmatfestivalen, Stavanger. Dark brown colour, creamy beige head. Moderate aroma, notes of malts and chocolate. The flavour has strong notes of chocolate malts, also hints of caramel and nuts, but is never too sweet. Balanced by distinct notes of NZ Pacific Gem hops, which, with their blackberry-like character, is an interesting choice for a brown ale. As Betty Brown is very flavourful and has a decent mouthfeel, you’d easily believe it was stronger than it actually is. This is definitely a beer I’ll buy frequently. In Norway, only Nøgne Ø Brown Ale can compete.

Bottle donated by Mike @ Lervig. Pours dark brown with beige head. A somewhat strong flavor of dark malts with hints of coffee, chocolate and toffee. The Pacific Gems hops really shine in this beer and makes it unique. Personally I lean more towards American Brown Ales, but this is one interesting brew. Lervig does it again.
