3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample from bottle at Vectura tasting. Brown colour. Some caramel and toffee in the aroma, not unpleasant. The flavour has also caramel and toffee, but also some moderately roasty notes. A moderate but sharpish and slightly metallic bitterness in the finish. Drinkable (if for free), but not something I’d spend money on.

Color is clear dark amber with a thin rocky light beige head. Aroma is like dried and roasted cranberries and blueberries, tinged with cheap generic light lager. Flavor is that of toast, bad lager yeast, and wildberries. Semisweet bready berry finish.

Flaske fra Ica Støperigaten: innbydende farge og skum, men hvorfor gir aromaen meg assosiasjoner til svart te? Ganske god smak med overraskende lang ettersmak, men allikevel en ubestemmelig helhet. Hadde den ikke vært såpass tørr hadde den minnet meg om norske butikkjuleøl.
