harrisoni (13577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2006
500ml bottle from Utobeer. Dark brown with thin beige head. Choc malt and hop. I quite like it. Fairly simple choc malt/hoppy beer. Hop finish is tasty. Drinkable.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2006
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.)

Bottled: One of the better brown ales. Nice sweet malty flavour with a touch of caramel. Finish is slightly bitter. A good brown ale.

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!

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2006
Bottle at RBESG Grand Tasting, August 2005. Reddish mid brown colour - not very dark for a brown ale. Plenty of nutty character and dry, roasted malt. Quite hoppy for a Brown Ale (or what we expect from a Brown Ale in the UK anyway) with an unusual, almost floral edge and an unexpected bitterness on the finish. Clean mouthfeel. I like it!

thebeertourist (4778) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2006
Deep copper colour with a decent white head. Caramel and grassy hop aroma. Sweet caramel, but balanced by good, fruity and grassy hoppiness, ending dry. Medium body. More an amber than a brown ale with the absence of any nuttiness- still highly enjoyable.

Rune (7963) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2006
500cl bottle. Batch 156 (BB 06/06). Amber colour, with a fading off-white head. Brunt malty aroma and flavour. Watery mouthfeel. Taste of roasted caramel and light bitterness at the end. Very good to food - try it to chicken meat.
