3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden beer with a very hoppy aroma (american hops - chinook?). Hops repeat in taste - quite bitter and long lasting aftertaste. One for the hopheads - a bit too agressive.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Glowing golden and crystal clear. Small white head. Apricoty and citrusy aroma. Rich malty aroma. Lots of hops. Not too bitter as it balances the malts nicely. Low in carbonation. Not over the top with regards to hops, but there is a few sharp edges and a rounded maltiness. Hops in the finish. A bit dry, but with some sweetness too.

Almost no head, just a white ring. Slightly hazy orange body. Bitter citric hoppy aroma with notes of peach and dry alcohol. Bitter, oily grapefruit taste with chalky notes. Quite good. (0.5l bottle.)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle thanks to Janka. Lots of hops on the aroma. Sweet fruity apricot and citrus aromas. Similar flavor. Could be mistaken for an IPA. Pretty hoppy and pretty good.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Clear golden with shortlived white head. Malt, spirits (bad nosespray) and flowers in aroma. Malty, dry flavour with a good amount of bitterness and some sweetness but again there’s the alcohol. I just didn’t get this the first time around compared to other Nøgne Ø products. Gonna try it soon again hopefully.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber courtesy of Immy. Pours a pale orange with off white head. Nose of spruce, citrus and pale malt. Flavor is a mellow version of the nose with a malty body and lightly bittered grapefruit finish. Nicely nuanced beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Sweet, teaish, fruity aroma. Cloudy pale orange colour. Small white head. Quite bitter, but nicely so. The late bitterness gets quite powerful, but not bad. Aroma hops are overpowered by the bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wonderful flowery aroma. This bottle is matured a bit, which may account for the bitterness being rounded off with the full malt taste. A great beer!
