500 ml bottle sampled in 2011. Hazy orange body with a small, dense beige head. Slightly acidic aroma with caramel malt. Flavor is caramel malt, toast and signs of infection. Not totally unpleasant but this will probably turn bad in a short time. Promising, but not right.

500ml bottle shared by Rune@Summertime Beer Session 5.Jul.2011 Hazy amber body with frothy head. The smell make you think of overripe orange, solvent, compost and rotten eggs. Tastes like mouldy orange juice with a dash of vinegar in it. Sour and astringent. Drain pour!

Bottle An almost clear one, dark golden, spakling, and topped by a dense, off-white head. The aroma is slightly roasted and nutty, a touch of pepper chimes in, but most of all it’s sourish, in a pleasant, bretty way I’m certain isn’t intended. Later tastings reveal it’s gone even more sour, then in an unpleasant way. The flavor is lightly sourish and milky, in a quite pleasant way, but it’s not much of a brown ale flavor. Medium body, quite dry, and pleasantly carbonated. Milky and lemony finish with a touch of roasted malts and nuts. Anyway, it was a quite pleasant experience at this time, it certainly wasn’t later on. 110916

Flaske 0,5l. Denne er vanskelig. Har drukket den ved flere anledninger - første gang på Ølhallen 31 Mai 11. Fikk da mistanke om infeksjon og ville gi den en ny sjanse. Noen uker senere: En i heimen. Infeksjonen mer tydelig. Ytterligere en (denne gang til mat), men den var på linje med den forrige. 30 Jun var Rune og undertegnede på Ølhallen for å få stadfestet elendigheta - men da var det ingen tegn til infeksjon? To batcher? Neppe. Dårlig flaskerengjøring i en periode? Nok om det. Ølet var i alle fall “i ratebar stand”. Dyp rødbrun på farge. Litt uklar. Flott luftig skum. Forsiktig aroma av malt. Smaken litt tørr & maltig med innslag av frukt. Bra - men anonym.

Bottle. Pours golden orange with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of red berries, sourness, funk and malt. Flavor is sweet and sour with some funk and malt. Medium body,average carbonation. Kinda nice, but not the way the brewer intended.
