stouby (3510) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle, at DBF (040515). Red with off-white head. Light malty aroma (caramel) and a light hoppyness. OK.

An extremely malty taste (almost a slight taste of bread :o) ). Well, the corn probably enhances that taste. Otherwise, it’s not particularly hoppy, but still rather fresh.

CamdenD (1056) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 17, 2005
I thought this was a very drinkable beer; especially in 1.2L servings and in twos. In any other fashion, this straight-forward beer is nothing.

Habanero (2154) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2005
Off-white and fully lasting head. Deep amber colour with corners of bronze. Malty with notes of corn, Maerzen hops and some caramel. Round and full bodiet. Long and slightly bitter finish.

Beer4000 (4322) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2005
Nice medium brown colour with a nice head. Actually quite good and refreshing, reminds me about the Norwegian low alcohol (4,7%) Christmas beer, moderate malty and some caramel. Not outstanding in any way, just a nice average beer. A bit short on aftertaste.

HenrikSoegaard (10090) - Randers, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2005
Bottle 0,66 L. Creamy white head. Good fully lastiong. Ok malty aroma. Heavy malty and bitter flavour. A nice italian beer.

thebeertourist (4654) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2005
Deep amber with a a nice head that left decent lacing. Exciting, spicy hop aroma. Malty caramel sweetness offset by good bitterness. Slightly watery, good carbonation.

FrankJohansen (3600) - Sabro, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2005
Light brown colour with a decent white, somewhat lasting head. Very fruity taste, but a bit too sweet for me. I would only drink one of these. A bit watery body with a smooth finish.

KnutAlbert (5758) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2005
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.

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)
