Into a taster showing tea brown and a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows tea. The palate is light bodied and lightly carbonated. Slightly sweet tea with a barley wine flavor.

Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Interesting. Nice malty taste, little roast, little spice. Light fruitiness. Impressed with the taste and body considering the %. Easy drinking as you’d expect. Bit of caramel.

Lilja (2185) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2015
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av malt, choklad, karamell, humle, trä, vört, brunt socker med toner av svagdricka. Lagom sötma, lätt kropp, fin beska. Förvånansvärt bra öl med tanke med den låga alkoholhalten. Ett ok julöl om du är bilföraren mellan släktkalasen. B

erickok (4322) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 8, 2015
Brown body and flisy head. Dusty dark malts, watery, herbal tea. Ehm, no. But its the taste that is worst. Like bitter cold tea with dishwashing water. And way bitter. Hopelessly failed experiment. Did somebody even try this before puttin it on the market? (Who am I kidding, of course not.) (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - APR 3, 2015
The head is ok, nthe colour brown. It smells sweet, worty, grain. The tasten is very worthy, barley, thin, almost no hops. Medium for a low alcoholic beer ok!

tfredvik (1435) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2015
Deep brown to copper body with a beige, very long-lived head that reduces to a layer that laces the glass well. A strange and fairly strong aroma of tobacco, yeast and coffee, and fruits and wort in the back. The quite strong flavour is even stranger: pear soft drink, tobacco, artificial candy-like strawberries, sugar, coffee and caramel. An utterly confusing mix of elements. However, the strangeness makes it a bit interesting. Mid-bodied with a moderate carbonation. Moderate sweet taste with hints of bitterness in the finish. Strange, strange, strange.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 7 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål, Oslo]

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Sørlandssenteret. Murky brown colour. Average amount of tan head. Wort, caramel, chocolate and roasted malt nose. Thin body, low carbonation. Sweet. Lacks bitterness. Caramel, sugar, wort and some malt flavour.

Alengrin (3396) - BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2015
Low alcohol beer from Mikkeller, made with different barley malts, wheat, orange peel and coriander - seems like a lot of ingredients for something best compared with a brown table beer. Rocky, off-white, dense and moussy, extremely stable head, colour dark chestnut brown with ruby hue, as good as clear, with some dark bits of protein here and there. Strange aroma, more powerful and more complex than usual for low alcohol beers, impressions of old biscuit, toasted brown bread, coriander seed, iron, stale chocolate chip cookies, caramel, dried leaves, minerals and a faint hint of the dried orange peel. Taste is relatively neutral at first, minerally and metallic, with dried fruits, the dried orange peel creeping in and some brown sugar providing a restrained sweetishness; obviously thin and watery mouthfeel, but clear caramelly and nutty malt profile providing some body; nutty, toasted and even slightly roasted bitterishly malty finish with retronasal coriander effect and a certain amount of herbal and leafy hop bitterness. Difficult to classify, but I’d say this is not far removed from the better - i.e. artisanal - brown table beers in Belgium. Interesting and original and frankly, I wouldn’t mind having this available in pubs, as it enables one to enjoy a credible beer taste and at the same time avoid getting drunk. One of the better low alcohol beers I had so far.
