A clear and dark amber color with off-white head. Aroma is fruity, nuts. Taste is sweet and a bit watery finish, though the carbonation i fizzy. Quite ok brown ale.

En god sødlig smag og en vist niveau af nødder smages også. En nem men ikke kedelig brown ale.

Beautiful and rich foam on a rich aroma of malt and hops. The taste is rich of caramel malt and slightly fruity acidity. Furthermore, the clear hint of nuts and a good round hop bitterness. It can easily have the character traits of a brown ale, but then a light one.

This beautiful Brown Ale is made with inspiration from English ales. I certainly think that Ørbæk’s version is far better than the ales that apparently has been its role models. Foam is light brown and persistent, the fragrance is dominated by caramel, malt and nuts. It has a very delicate sparkling taste the notes of malt and hops blends in well with caramel and nuts. The very first mouthful reminds the most of a dark mild ale, but seconds after the start flavor nuances to develop in the moth. The aftertaste is bitter on a soft shape.

djoeye (2878) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2015
Look; fawn huge head, purple red body, thick lacing. Aroma; leafy live hops, modest dark malts, fruits and berries, inviting scents. Taste; soft hops, nutty malts, grass, bread, malted candies, cocoa - leading to a gentle malty finish. On palate fine. Overall; easy brew. Could’ve had more hops to give it more "ale’ish" touch.

DraftDodger (721) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2015
Copenhagen 20/6 2015. 33 cl in the cafe at local library. Hugely overpriced. Boasting of a 13 years old biodynamic gold medal. Pours dark brown with off-white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Sweet aroma with some caramel and a discrete bitterness. Medium carbonation. Taste is sweetish with some caramel and a little bit of metal. Only a very small degree of bitterness in aftertaste. An ok brown ale but nothing more. They call themselves "the small brewery with the big/great taste". Does not seem fully justified in this case.
