3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle, best before 09/07/13. Pours a slightly cloudy deep amber with a small off-white head. Nose is caramel, biscuit, citrus and grapefruit with a slight tropical fruit note as well. Taste is hoppy with notes of citrus, grapefruit and pine. Medium to high carbonation. Mouthfeel is a little light but crisp. Not bad, could do with a little more malt to balance the hops.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Bergen Ølfestival. Clear deep caramel-brown in color and it has a small quickly sidesticking light beige head. Smells a bit anonymous at first, but there is a light fruitiness over the aroma. Light hoppy (da-aa), thin strawberries. Soft gentle oily mouthfeel and it has a nice prickling carbonation level. Much the same in taste. Light hoppy, some fruity tones, some clear zesty tones with a hint of something burned in the finish. Easy, actually really easy drinking’. Look out for this at your grocery.

Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Hazy amber color, small creamy head. Some aroma of caramel and mushrooms. Dry mouthfeel, dry caramel and toffee flavor with a nice biscuity character; strong bitterness, correctly it doesn’t provide evident resins and fruits, but a light earthy touch. Interesting, well brewed.

Lovely glowing ruby. Inviting fruity aroma. Soft, round, malty body, pine, grass, a little citrus. Perfect balance, on the top shelf of Norwegian beers below 4.7%. Not extreme, this is for the BBQ, after beach or apre ski.
