COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Also known as Skarven Jubileumsøl Extra Special Bitter. Anniversary brew for the bar/pub/restaurant called Skarven in Tromsø. Norwegian description: Ølet har en meget aromaisk duft av engelsk humle. Man får assosiasjoner til ferske urter og nyslått høy. Litt karamelduft fra karamellmalten. Lite restsødme. Meget lang ettersmak, hvor den aromatiske engelske humlen dominerer bakerst på tungen.

Medium offwhite head. Clear dark brown body. Earthy caramelly perfumy aroma with sugary notes. Dry-sweet earthy caramelly fruity taste with dusty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry, and faintly acidic, earthy perfumy caramel aftertaste with dusty fruity buttery notes. Nice. Highly drinkable. (0.25l draft at Skarven, Tromsø.)

12.03.2012. On tap at Vertshuset Skarven, Tromsø. Dark brown to black colour. Thin layered tan head. Aroma of dark malts very similar to the Mack Juleporter. Dryer with more bitter tones of dark bitter chokolate. Fruity notes. Very nice lasting dry bitter mouthfeel and aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2012 Fra kran på Vertshuset Skarven i Tromsø. Dyp rød/orange på farge. Medium høyt skum med litt farge. Skummet setter nivåmerker på glasset. Nydelig fruktig aroma. Fersken. Innholdsrik smak. Ananas, fersken & annen frukt. God balanse. Pikant bitter vri etter hvert. Nydelig fruktig ettersmak som varer en god stund. Får mer assosiasjon av en Pale ale enn en ESB. Utmerket øl er det uansett. Tilføyelse 17 Mar 12: Omsider var den på kran igjen. Den kan nok dukke opp med jevne mellomrom da Skarven har flere fat stående på lager. Ølet har endret litt karakter: Nå var det blitt ørlite fyldigere og framstår nå som en skikkelig ESB.

500ml on tap, pre-release at Ølhallen in Tromsø. Initial huge, off-white, whipped egg foam, slowly disappearing. Unclear, dark orange coloured body. Attractive aroma of citrus hops and fresh flowers. Citrus and herbal hops in flavour on a restrained, mid-sweet, malty backbone. Delicious, long-lived, dry bitter ending. A well made, living product (Tromsø, 01.12.2011).
