2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Malty sweet pleasant start are being robbed by a bitter short watery finish. Probably not the worst drinking beer but with so many new good norwegian beers entering the Norwegian marked improvement is needed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear copper, with a big white head that lasts for a while and leaves a nice lacing on the glass. The aromas are mostly malty notes of butterscotch and roasted nuts, with a woody finish. The taste is quite sweet, which goes well with the butterscotch aromas, and the finish is just faintly dry. The mouthfeel is light and lively. This beer is surprisingly good for a Norwegian macro lager.

Skummer greit, lukter svakt brent, søtt, anelse humle. Kobberfarget. Ok maltsødme, noe humle som forsvinner raskt. Vanndig.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home. Has a clear reddish brown head with a creamy light beige medium head. Malty and sweet aroma of roasted almonds, honey, dried fruit and some cocoa and wood. The flavour feels rich at first with a lot of sweet and dark malt, and then fades in a much lighter tone. Has a smooth and slick mouth feel, and a light to medium bitterness. Starts well with a nice aroma, but the taste didn’t follow up and ends a bit light and faint.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can - 500ml. Copper body with a decent off-white foamy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with grainy hints. Taste carries grainy notes and ends with a short malty/grainy finish. Not bad.
