3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2009 Bottle 0,5l shared with Rune. Thanks to him - and Yngwie. Pale yellow golden colored. A large creamy head. A bit hazy. A spicy impression throughout with some yeast in the aroma. Fruity hints in the flavor. A dry, fruity bitterness emerging. A lasting dry aftertaste. Gives you a summer feeling. Lots of sediments in the bottle. Also had this one from tap at Olympen, Oslo as Nøgne Ø Blond.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml, thanks to Yngwie. Clear, yellow-golden body - second pour with a slight haze. Moderate, lasting white head. Fruity aroma with wheat. Sharp-light taste of smooth, late fruits added some spicy hints. Hop dryness to the ending. Easy drinking session beer on an inspiring level. A touch of summer in October (shared with Finn, Tromsø 13.10.2008).
