2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap (from urinal!) at Borefts 2012. The pour’s deep amber with a small head. The nose is smokey ham, wood, bread. The taste is tangy, musty sweet smoke. Weird vegetable. More smoke. Ham. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not bad, just quite strange...

Clear amber colour, firm off-white head. Spicy aroma, herbs, perfume, musk, quite floral. Light bitter flavour, light sweet, perfume. Finish lots of perfume. Interesting brew with a brilliant although somewhat disturbing presentation. Nice.

Tap @ Borefts 2013. Pours a clear brown beer with a very small, off white head on top. Aroma is very faint, light smokey and light caramel. Flavor is very faint as well, light sweet and watery mouthfeel. Interesting brew with interesting ingredients, but not very impressive.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
From the urinal @ Borefts 2012. Near clear woody-brown in color with a small bubbly and sidesticking off-white top. Some smoky hints on the nose. Light old-fruity, peaches and caramel. Also a faint tone of weed and needles. Strange stuff. It’s sweet and absolutely horrible! Oh my! Old toilet paper flavored puss. Not often it crashes as badly as this on my taste buds. Can a normal person drink this? I sure as hell cannot. What a horrible experiment... Think perhaps they might have used the wrong urinal in my sample. 30.09.2012

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ HaandFestival 2013. The infamous Bäver, at last! Let’s see what all the fuzz is about. Pours a deep clear amber body with a medium white head. Aroma is resin, smoke, wet moss, something animal-like and quite perfumy that I can only assume is the professed "castoreum" (secretion from some kind of beaver gland), forest-reminiscent wooden notes, hints of red berries and grass. Truly original, although very strange. Taste is much as the above description, with smokey berry tones in the aftertaste. Full body, medium carbonation. I actually quite liked this, despite the undeniable weirdness that seeps from every drop. :-)
