3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear brown with a reddish tint. Mostly lasting big-bubbled beige head. Anise-scented caramel malts to the nose. Light body, chalky mouthfeel. Light bready and caramelly malt flavor. Light sweet. Discreet bitterness, some earth and spice. Short sourish malty ending. Quite good for a pasteurized and filtered Bitter. [Picked up at Meny Oslo City]

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Either this one has a quite peculiar aroma, or it’s not a good idea to take a puff of Otrivin Mentol right before the tasting. In either case, what my confused nose detects are fermented grapes and white wine, sweet fruits, caramel and hints of berries in the back. In the glass it’s nowhere near blood red as is claimed on the label, it’s more of a medium amber colour (but it’s still good-looking). The clear body is topped by a short-lived, off-white head that laces the glass well. The flavour is moderate and a bit less complex than the aroma: fruits, caramel and spicy hints. The taste is light to moderate sweet and light bitter. Fairly dry, light plus body and moderate carbonation. The initial sips felt a bit metallic, but I’ll blame that on the Otrivin.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 3 months before BB date, from Meny Oslo City, Oslo]

Sample at Malmö beer and whiskey festival. Ridiculous, they should stick to making their brown beer.

Not that bitter and quite nice to drink. Somewhat thin and dark interesting looks it was.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear, nutty brown with a smallish off-white head. Nutty, "tired" aroma. Light body, tons of crystal malt making a caramellish impression, again quite nutty with a distinct cardboard note. Ends dryish with no distinct hop impression. Verry so-so. 260314

Ok beer. Good mouth feel, starts sweet and nutty, but finishes bitter in that chewing on a pill sort of way. It’s ok.
