COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rather malty brew, which we think goes very well with cheeses - even well matured blue cheeses. You can also try our Amber paired with a grilled dish. Recommended serving temperature 10°C/50°F.

Ingredients: Maris Otter, Munich, and caramel malt; Chinook and Williamette hops; English ale yeast, and our local Grimstad water.

14°P, 30 IBU, 6.0 ABV.

Snegurochka (382) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2013
Tap as Henrik 20 år@Henrik 22.Jun13. Pours a dark amber body with a small head, that rapidly turns into a filmy layer. Pleasant aroma of wet hops, flowers and citrus, hint of mould. Well balanced and full bodied. Hints of caramel and spices, that adds to the taste of hops. Thanks Kenneth!

Foffern (1150) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2013
On tap at Pingvinen, Bergen as Henrik 20 år. Pours a slightly hay amber colour with a creamy beige medium head. The aroma is sweet with caramel, sweet biscuits and apricot. The flavour is also sweet with more apricot, fruity hops and a little citrus. Has a smooth and rich mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A well-balanced and nice amber ale.

Holmen1 (2272) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2013
Fra fat på Cardinaltreff 2.pinsedag: rund og fruktig, men uinteressant til NØ å være. Kommentarer som pyntesåpe, sminkeskrin og badekuler ble nevnt rundt bordet. Bør allikevel prøve flaskeversjonen når det høver.

On tap at Cardinal. Misty orange body with a white film leaving good lacing. Buttery raspberry tangerine marmelade on the nose. Toasted sweet, light salty fruity and mellow bitter. Smooth to drink and medium to full bodied.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2013
On tap @ Nøgne Ø, at the follow-up dinner to the annual Nøgne Ø Homebrewer Day 2013. :-) Pours a deep amber, nearly copper-toned brown body with a medium off-white head. Nose is deep malts, caramel, pine, grassy hop notes and hints of red fruits. Taste is smooth deep malty tones, caramel, red fruits and hints of pine, grass and slight resinous hints in the back. Tasty in its own peculiar way. Full body, medium carbonation. Not as "hop forward" as many other Nøgne beers, but still a fine specimen of the (in my opinion) underrated Amber Ale genre.

Aroma is sweet with fruity notes, caramel and some licorice. Flavour is sweet with licorice, fruits, caramel and raisins. Like a light (and sweet) version of God Jul.
