2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. First rating from Meantime coming up; this is a brewery that seems to be "craft-oriented" but is listed as "commercial brewery" here on RB so I’m kinda curious to make my own opinion about the level of craft represented. :-) Pours a deep, near-brown orange body with a small white head. Aroma is extremely faint, with only a few malty tones barely making it into my nostrils. Taste is slightly better; roasted malts, hints of caramel and toffee. Still weak. All in all a pleasant but mediocre vienna-style lager. Oh well, for this one my expectations were rather low.

Bottle 33cl, a clear amber beer with good creamy head. Nose is very malty, toasted with acrid notes. Aroma is caramel like, dry, malty, quite hopy for the style, lot of vienna malt a bit acrid notes, not bad but less round to be really great.

Tap. Clear redish amber color. Medium size, thick white head, stays. Looks fizzy, but I suspect dirty glass. Hops, malty, sweet and faint iron, jam and apples in aroma. Caramel, apples, hops, hay, strudel, sweetish taste. Short buttery bitterness in aftertaste. I like it.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Easy drinking deep amber beer the colour of an aged whisky. Gentle carbonation with no head whatsoever. Sweet smelling with a slight hint of soap, this does not follow through into the flavour. Contrary to the description above, this beer does contain cascade hops, though there is very little bitterness, just a slight pepperiness in the finish. Predominant flavours are a light caramel with some bready undertones. Very light and understated complemented well by a light cheese such as gouda.
