Brown with off white head - aroma of malts with some caramel and some fruity hop aromas as well - Malt body with some caramel, hops in the back with fruity notes and some bitterness as well - malts in the finish with some bitterness from the hops - This was ok

Holmen1 (2376) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2014
Flaske fra polets nettbutikk: fint skum og rødlig ravfarge, ikke særlig brown. "Brygget som en klassisk engelske ale" står det på etiketten, og stort rundere går det vel ikke an å formulere seg (bortsett fra "brygget i regnet", brygget på de fineste ingredienser" osv...). Men den smaker faktisk ganske bra, med tydelig preg av karamellmalt. Har de også brukt krystallmalt? En behagelig humleprofil (de 45 IBU virker svært så diskrete), men jeg savner noe i munnfylden og ettersmaken.

Finn (4141) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
Fra flaske 0,5l på ølhallen 27 Sep 13. Mørkebrun. Uklar. Nesten ikke skum. Ikke pent å se på! Svakt syrlig aroma. Innholdsrik smak med dominans av karamell. Tilløp til fruktsmak. Avslutter litt tørt. Drukket stand alone, men har tro på dette som et matøl.

yngwie (13350) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle. Lots of microfloaties in this one, the body is amber to brown colored and mostly clear. A small, off-white to beige head on top. The aroma is lightly milkysourish, with caramel hints and some berries. The flavor is faintly roasted, with some berries and a touch of lemony sourness. Some bitterness too, coming stronger towards the finish. Medium body, quite dry. There’s not much brown ale-ish over this one, and it’s not very well brewed either. 140118

Vestjysk Vinter Vanvid januar 2014. Hazy amber with a small white head. Malty aroma with a fruity touch. Sweetish malty flavour with caramel, cardboard and a hint of fruit
