3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub during RBNAG-09. Looking quite nice in the glass, hazy and copper colored. The head is a nice, dense, beige one. Butterscotch, roasted malts and some coffee on the nose. The flavor has a certain acidity, is quite bready, and nice but too butterscotchy. Bready finish with a fruity touch. Medium body, dry. Overall, too much butterscotch for my palate, but it feels very refreshing anyway. 091107

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From keg at the brewery during the RBNAG 2009. Slightly hazy amber body with a descent beige head. Aroma is malt, caramel, butter and some acidity. Flavor is quite sweet malty, caramel, butter, acid, a bit metallic with a bitter finish. Medium body and a long finish that starts bitter and ends up sour. I had a opposite experience with the acidity in this beer copared with Glad Laks. The acidity didn’t feel to dominating in the start, but becomes more unpleasant at the bottom of my glass. Not totally wrong, actually quite promising, but to much acid.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From keg at the brewery during the 2009 RateBeerNorwegianAutumnGathering. A tall yellowish foam, resting on a hazed, nut-brown body. Buttery malts and some light acidic apple notes in the aroma. Taste is cream-caramel and more butter. Modest bitterness. A cider-like acidity underneath. Watery to oily mothfeel. Dry, faint malty, light acidic ending. Not top notch, this one, will probably be better with less acidity.
