3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-5-12 -
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance –Pours a light brown color with a billowy two finger off white head. The head has very nice retention but fades over time to give a good level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is sweet and roasted. It has a nice dark fruit aroma of cherry and some caramel as well as a roasted malt smell.
Taste – The taste starts roasty. There is a lighter sweetness associated with the front of the taste. The sweetness is mainly of a caramel nature. As the taste advances some roasty and bitter hop flavors come to the tongue and diminish some of the sweetness. While the sweetness is overall lessened, some light dark fruit flavors come to the tongue. In the end a rather smooth and moderately roasty flavor is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. A bit of a heavier body may have suited the flavor profile a bit better, but for the abv at 4.5% and the moderate carbonation it did make it more refreshing.
Overall – A very nice affordable and good session brown ale. It had a good flavor as well being rather refreshing.

Kobberfarget med beigt skum. Karamell og en litt vinaktig duft. Nøtter i smaken. Litt kort.

Bière achetée aux États-Unis : elle m’a tout de suite intrigué puisqu’au Canada, nous n’avons que la Brown ale. La bière est brune, avec des reflets rouges. Nez de caramel et de baies sucrées. En bouche, c’est sucré, tout en noisettes, avec des notes de fruits sauvages et de malt grillé. Somme toute très bonnne!

Sweet vineous aroma. Clear red/brown colour. Toasty bready, nutty taste with good bitterness, unfortunately some tartiness in the finish. Light foamy texture too carbonated for esb. Bad aroma good taste.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.33l bottle. This is a clear one, light brown looking in the glass and it has a medium sized kinda beige-ish top. On the nose I get lots of old coffee grout and cardboard. Some traces of something softly roasted and there are also a ooze of sun damaged chocolate. Both dry and semi sweet in the taste. A good amount of something near roasted with dark malts and hints of more sun damaged chocolate. Kinda flourish also. Light oily in the mouth and it has a just above average carbonation level. Definitely drinkable, but not to exciting really. 16.11.2013

Good looking bottle and label. The beer is fairly flat, metallic, bit dry, too sweet and simply not very nice. A beer with a name, which in the end, is very tame.

Flaske, 33 cl. Kobberfarvet, klar øl med et lavt off white skum. Dufter af knækbrød og lyse røde bær. Og nutella. Tynd og vandig i munden. Vegetale noter. Maltsuppe med en let bitter finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a clear red color with a medium sized bubbly off-white head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is of malt, caramel, rye, spices with a hint of bread and hops. Very sweet but with a bitter finish. The rye comes in clearly in the aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. A bit boring, but at least it doesn’t taste like dishwashing fluid like their Brown Ale.
