Bottle, batch # 240. Unclear dark brown color. Beige medium-sized lasting head with nice laces. Pleasant aromas of floral hops, fresh and sourish fruits and yeast. Taste is slight sweet and roasted with a distinct hoppy bite. Dry finish. A bit thin-bodied, but still a really enjoyable beer.

Hazy reddish brown, with a decent/deminising off-white head. Has some burnt malty aromas as well as some saltiness. Not quite balanced, but a fine choice to heavy casserole dishes.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2008 Medium brownish beige head. Deep red
body, somewhat hazy. Roasty, burnt caramel pudding aroma with notes of citric, pine needle hops, and some lacquer and wood. Dry burnt chocolatey caramel pudding taste with bitter pine
needle aftertaste. A bit thin-bodied. Some background sweetness as well. Dry aftertaste of burnt wood, citric pine needle hops with peppery, minty notes. Very nice. (0.5l bottle. Batch
#211. I remember roughly the same aroma and taste from earlier
batches. Rerated batch #342. Again pretty consistent with earlier tastings.)

Nice smell of roasted malt, liberal use of aromatic herbs. I think they must ahve improved this beer - this shows that Nøgne ø is able to brew great beers of lower strength, too!
