Tap, DGN. Rimelig mørk, anonym lukt. Litt småbrent smak, endel frukt. Hadde kanskje trodd den skulle være mer spesiell?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours amber with a small off white head which quickly disappears. Nose shows some bread and spiced caramel. Some floral hop tones in there too. The hop bitterness shines in this. Has a light herbal note throughout with some citrus and nutmeggy spices that work well together. Soft and bitter finish makes this a quaffer. Really tasty stuff

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff des-12:med lett bitterhet og stor fruktighet var dette en riktig god forfriskning sent på kvelden! Må absolutt prøves igjen. Sommerøl?!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft tap. One of the Nøgne Ø founders recommended this one to me. The head was rather flat, and instantly the aroma was absent. The palate was sharp and it was overall pretty bitter. After a while - a few minutes - the fantastic and sweet pumpkin aftertaste revealed itself and took over the show, and THAT was what made this beer so good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From tap @Pingvinen, Bergen. Cloudy brown body. Low beige head. Spiced caramelly malt aroma, with a fresh sour tone to it. Smooth on the palate. Medium full. Quite so flavorfull. Good malt body. Herbal, caramelly and gently spiced. Pumpkin is noticable, and certainly not overdone. Light perfumey endnotes. A very likeable one. [07.09.12]

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. Pours a deep hazy brown olour with a medium beige head. Aromas of dark malt, dried fruits, pumpkin, roasted almonds and winegums. The flavour is more fruity with apricot, hops, dried fruit, cherries and some spices. The mouthfeel is light and slick, and has a light to medium bitterness. A definately fresh and tasteful beer.
