2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle kindly shared by Finn. Cloudy golden body under a lasting white head that laced well. Mid-dry smell, fruity and spicy. Bread, wheat, dry fruits and a ginger touch to the flavour character. Herbal hops to the ending. Well-rounded on the palate. Better with food, perhaps. (session, Tromsø 05.08.2014).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big offwhite coarseish head. Hazy yellow body with powerful,
almost boiling, carbonation. Fruity mealy lemongrass aroma with
floral notes. Sweetish peppery fruity taste with floral notes.
Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Confusing. If there’s enough
pepper for me to taste it, why isn’t it hot? Anyway. Dryish
mealy fruity peppery taste, again with the floral notes.
Interesting. It’s certainly different, and not at all
bad. (0.33l bottle, from Meny Oslo City.)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Off white modest top on hazy golden beer. Aroma of odd fruits, plums, blended hops. Taste of odd fruits, nuts (walnuts mostly), blended hops, ginger and spicy notes, with fine soft bitterness. Finishes with malt-hoppy-odd-nut-soup and hints of pepper. Odd/different stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Nose is pale malts, straw, aniseed, pepper and hints of smoke. Taste is pale malts, straw, pepper, aniseed, licorice and hints of smoke and tomatoes. Light body, medium carbonation. While highly original, I prefer my Szechuan spices in a nice meal rather than this beer. Still, not too bad.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20

Pale malts, grass, herbs and a decent bitterness. Smoked notes. Medium body, soft carbonation. Medium sweet, with a nice bitterness and smoked touch in the finish. Strange and not very pilsnerish, but drinkable. At least when cold. 140724
