3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
