4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at RBESG Grand Tasting 05.Very good aroma - hops, fresh and true. Great hop flavour too - light but full (as if that makes sense). Easy drinking, but great peppery hops. Excellent stuff, even at 6.0%, this is superb value.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Really nice, honeyed, lychee and pine aroma, quite hoppy and fresh. Palate is all about hops. Piney American hops, sweetish to start, then bitter in the finish. Lots of flavour. Touch of alcohol in the finish. Very tasty indeed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Dark, hazy amber with a small off-white head. Lovely malty base with notes of both nuts and caramel. But no real sweetness, on the contrary a dry, dry bitter hoppiness. Rather lovely. An extreme yeast sediment finishes this. 010605

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden colour and a distinctly "American aroma" with lots of nice grapefruits (cascade). The initial flavour is sweet and malty ending in a nice long bitter finish. Who would have thought Norwegians could brew decent (»and then some«) beer? ;o)
