3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
reddish-brown color. Slightly fruity aroma. Light sweet taste with a short bitter end. Average carbonation. A little watery.
As a Nøgne Ø beer its less full of flavor than other beers from the same brewery, but I like it exactly because of this and move love of brown ales in general

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Pours a dark chestnut Brun. Smell is gentle choc. Flavour us pretty subtle, pretty smooth, with correct mouth thickness. Slightly watery, but a pleasant aftertaste. A little like a Uk cask Porter. Nice, but lacks a little sharpness. Doesn’t taste the strength.

Pours dark brown with a tanned head. Can’t make out any aroma on these ales. Good for this style, imo.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Cloudy redish dark amber colour with average frothy lacing tan head. Malty aroma, some milk chocolate, hay, an earthy and mossy note. Diversified taste, a sweet malty strain, dark berry tart, this milk chocolate and hay mixture again as continous "middle" strain. Dry, slightly herbal finish that may arouse from fruit parings.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a surprisingly average nogne-o beer. It is an enjoyable Belgian style ale but lacks the flavour you expect from their beers.
