3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at Chelmsford Beer Festival, July 2005. Mid amber colour. Soft malt aroma. Plummy fruit and mellow hops on the palate. Off dry and medium bodied. Well balanced and easy drinking, but it didn’t excite as much as some of the brewery’s other beers.

Bottle at RBESG Grand Tasting 05. Treacle appearance. Fairly plain Bitter - ESB stylee, if you ask me. Warming on the finish, but not thru the alc. Treacle, plastic, malt. Not very exciting.

Cask@Chelmsford Beer Festival. After having their Porter, Imperial Stout and India Pale Ale, this was always going to be a little bit underwhelming. Lightly sweet nutty characters, with some citrusy aromatic hops in the finish, some bitterness. Quite tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. One of four Nøgne Ø beers traded with Sigmund (Thanks a lot) and the lowest rated on the site. However it’s a real beaut and makes me very excited about trying the others. Obviously amber in colour with an initial off-white head. Thearoma is malty with some sweet chocolate powder notes. The taste has fruits, malts and again some chocolate notes. Quite bittersweet and very tasty. My first Norwegian micro - Good stuff.

Pours unclear deep amber colored with a fine tan head. Caramel and plenty of hops in the aroma with a fine balance. Good roasted and hoppy flavor with a bitter end and some nutty and spicy hints. Fresh and well balanced with a good drinkability!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium brown-red head over an amber body. Obvious hoppyness, but much more complex than that. Quite roasted but sweet, hints of nuts in the taste. I found it quite enjoyable. Long live Norway !
