1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
roma is near zero but I get some very light notes of roasted malts and sweet caramels. It appears to be quite fizzy. The taste is almost the same, a little bit of nothing mixed with some distant roasted malts. A sweetness drives by in the fast lane, flippin’ you off before it leaves as fast as it appeared. It’s not really bad, but... you know when you visit an old relative, and they serve you coffee and just because they are "economical" they use two spoons of coffee grains in a seven cup batch.

Can. Dark brown, cloudy with a medium white head. Aroma has malt, chocolate and citrus.
Taste has malt, dark syrup and grain. Mouthfeel is pretty watery, aftertaste is weak. Smooth overall but really suffers from the weak body.

Caramel malty flavours with hints of dried fruits to the ending. A little roasted bitterness, as well. Medium to thin bodied. Soft carbonated. More than just drinkable (Tromsø 19.05.2014).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml can, hazy dark reddish brown colour, large mostly vanishing rocky off-white head, lacing. Moderately malty aroma of toast, grain, caramel and some coffee, light resiny hops. Taste is initially moderately sweet with a bit of bitterness and sourness, turning into a moderately bitter and slightly sweet finish with a roasty feel and a bit of astringency. Medium body, oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Not bad at all, liked the stornger version a bit more though this one had a more proper carbonation.
