4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent strongly carbonated dark brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The nice aroma was brown malt and mild hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The yummy flavor contained delicious notes of brown malt and mild milk chocolate. A wonderful best in class brew. More please!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Coop, Trysil. Pours dirty brown with faint tints of red. The aroma is not pleasant, vague smells of mensroom. In spite of the aroma, I carry on. The taste is lucklily different and better, roasted malts, bitter notes, chocolate. There’s nor much sweetness though, making it quite a rustic brown ale. The low alcohol pulls down the average even more.
