A well-balanced beer with a marked floral fruitiness coming through from the aromatic yeasts used in its production. 11.8P

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.

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 (3605) - 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.

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)

Sigmund (5566) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2005
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.

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2005
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.
