3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Wonderful, almost opaque, copper-ish chestnut-amber colour with ruby red glimmer and small, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Fruity hoppy and slightly nuttily caramalt aroma, hints of red berries, a touch of marzipan. Taste is dry, fruity hoppy, minimally piney, hints of red berries, mandarine, orange zest, slightly nuttily caramel malty background; light and slightly watery. Very nice Amber Ale; one of the few marking a fix to manifest the originality of the style.

Ok på smak, men for dominerende, bitter humlesmak. Ingen vinner, men et helt greit øl.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Red amber body, small head. Aroma has sweet caramel, some flower shampoo and red apple skin. Simple caramelly taste with red apples. Not bad but a rather boring beer. Why is there a fish on the label? Is there as story behind this like the legend of Orval, only instead of a ring somebody dropped their pipe in the well?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Speakeasy by Põhjala. Coppery amber colour. Head big, good lacing. Body light, carbonation average. Soapy and perfumey on the nose, also grainy and grassy, with more pleasant fruity notes in the background. Taste likewise. Finish somewhat grainy and metallic, not exactly pleasant. Not bad but I did not enjoy it too much...
