3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml rather expensive bottle from Meny Oslo City. Fair amount of bubbly, fawn-coloured head. Clear red-brown body colour. On the nose I got spices, herbal hops and caramel malts. Almond, anise, and earth malty flavours. Roasted malty ending, mid-sweet and mid-dry. Medium to thin bodied. Quite drinkable with seasonal qualities (hotel room, Oslo 12.12.2013).

Red-brown clear pour. Small tan head. (very) Sweet cereal maltyness in the aroma. Some light spices as well. Palate is on the low spectrum of lively, with a medium/light body. One of the better 4,7 ABV beers in Norway.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Dark amber in colorwith a small tan head. Aromas of pellet fodder for animals and some faint toasted malts in the background.
Flavors of green apples and malts. The beer has clear signs of stressed yeast during fermentation. Lindesnes still has a lot to learn...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 L bottle purchased @Varnaveien Mineralvann, Moss. A slow gusher, leaving a massive lightly tanned head, atop a translucent deep ruby brown body. Weak but clean aroma of cocoa and milk chocolate. Dry cocoa-accented malt flavor. Some pretty nice milky/yoghurty tones. Mild peppery bitterness. Light to medium full. Sparkling choco-malty finish. A good one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle from Varnaveien mineralvann, Moss. Pours clear dark brown with a reddish hue and an off-white head. Spicy and malty aroma with some roasty notes. Medium sweet with flavour of malt, caramel and spices and a lightly bitter and spicy finish. Anise seems to be the most easy recognizable spice and it fits quite well. Balanced and easy to drink with more flavour and not so much carbonated caramel water with alcohol feel that some of the Norwegian industrial Christmas brews give.
