A good beer, though not a great beer. Lots of fruit, both orange and more sweet apricot, which is balanced by some hops in the aftertaste. Some info on their web site, but more on their history than on their beers.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2006 Bottle. Dark golden with large, dense head. Quite ordinary beer. It is available in the Norwegian Wine Monopoly stores (Vinmonopolet), but I can’t understand why they sell so much average and below average beer when there is so much good beer to import. Well, back to Menabrea. The nose and flavour is mostly malt, and unfortunately some "can-taste" along with a little hops in the end. (050906)

330 ml bottle, now available in Norway (Vinmonopolet). Amber colour, large white head. Moderate malty aroma with notes of toffee and some fruity hops. Flavour is moderately malty with some caramel and tolerable hops, but this is really not much more than "average" beer. Some metallic notes in the aftertaste.

Bottle; Pours a reddish golden with a nice lasting head. Aromas of roasted malts, rye bread and a slightly sweet note. Mediumbodied and tasting like freshly baked rye bread. Very malty. A delicious beer. And great as a session beer.

Other than the light amber color body and good white foamy head nothing out of the ordinary for this beer. Had a medium malty aroma and flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber golden lager with a light foamy head.
Impressive maltiness (for a lager beer) with hints of toffee and caramel, as well as a nice bitterness, that lingers in the mouth for quite a bit.

Light and sweet, bready which I like, decent body, some sweet malts with a little fruity body to it. Clean and dry finish, refreshing, quenching, makes you drink it quickly.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark Amber color. Small sized white foamy head, strong lacing. Aroma is bready and sweet. Medium bodied Vienna. Malts are fruity and sweet. Slightly spicy hops. Rather pleasant tasting yet slightly sweet Vienna. A little thin and watery perhaps and it a little sweet for my taste. But it is a nice drinkable beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is sweet.
