3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Interesting blend of malt, hops and honey in both taste and aroma. But it appears a bit unbalanced. Very flavorful, though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I feel that this looks and tastes very similar to an English premium bitter. Little carbonation, no head. Lovely smell of hops, hoppy dry aroma, too. Full malty body, warming finish with the hops lingering for a long time. Another great beer from Nøgne ø!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 l bottle. Dark amber color with beige head. Dark caramel dominates the aroma along with fruity and resiny hops. Sweetish and heavy caramel flavor with fruity marmelade, some citrus and resiny Goldings hops. Some dull yeasty notes. The caramel is certainly over the top in this beer. According to label this was brewed February 26 of 2007 with english yeast!
