lemasney (398) - Trenton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2008
ABV: 4.5% RateBeer rating: 81 Calories: estimated at 300 C Volume: 16.9 fl oz. Glass: dimpled mug Purchased at: Canals in Burlington (thanks, Mike!) Price: $5.41 Consumed at: home First Impression: Typical brown ale, which is surprising, considering Nogne 0 and Canal’s in Burlington. Aroma is faint and a bit chocolate. Visuals are clear carbonated and brown with a very persistent head but no lace. Taste is simple, average brown ale - good hop depth, simple taste signatures. Palate is a medium finish and a hoppy bite. Second Impression - about average for a brown ale, and surprisingly, better examples exist outside of Nogne 0’s offering here. Aroma: 7 out of 10 Visuals: 4 out of 5 Taste: 7 out of 10 Palate: 3 out of 5 Overall: 15 out of 20

PalCabral (143) - SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
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.

esox (1186) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Draught. Foaming like hell, dark brown-amber, somewhat cloudy. Strong raisin notes when too cold, some herbal notes. Syrupy, toasted bread is more obvious when warmer. Dried fruit notes, as long as sweet herbal hops. Dryish malt flavor, grains, sweetish chocolate, somewhat herbal hop aftertaste. Medium body, frothy texture.
