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!

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
