2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
0.5l bottle. This is a cloudy not beautiful looking kinda dark orange one with a medium sized bubbly off-white top. Mild on the nose, but it’s giving away some yeast fruity tones. A bit of apple and cardboard combined with a soft mild sweetness. Fair enough. Hmm.. It doesn’t really taste all that good. Old and undress mineral watered flavors here. It feels light oily in the mouth and it has a average carbonation level. Lots of yeasty notes with old warm tropical juice left in the box. Ends with a rough and malty aftertaste. Bah, this was quite a disappointment. Grows a bit on you after a while, but I did not finish the bottle. 22.12.2013

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a deep slightly hazy orange body with a small white head. Nose is caramel malts, hay, grains, wet grass and hints of sulfur. Taste is grainy caramel, hay, sulfur, astringent yeasty tones and hints of wet grass. Light body, medium carbonation. Apart from the somewhat disfiguring astringent yeast/sulfur tones, this comes across as pretty much "yet-another-undefinable-Norwegian-farmhouse- well known to my palate from other, similar small breweries with small capacity, weak distribution and whose majority of beers are brewed to conform to the ABV grocery store limit in Norway, 4,7 % ABV. Not very impressive.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Orange-ish body that is slightly hazy, with a small, frothy, egg-white head that leaves some lacing. Quite faint aroma with light malty notes, some fruits and citrus. Far from unpleasant, but rather boring stuff. The same goes for the flavours: faint fruits and caramel, and that’s about it. The taste is light sweet and the finish is light to moderate bitter. Quite ordinary mouthfeel. Won’t try this one again.
