Fra fat (!) på M2 Cardinal, skuddårsaften: klar rødlig ravfarge med fint skum som varer. Røde bær, karamell, røde epler og etpar granskudd i den deilige duften. Smaken likeså - balansert og lekker og med en myk og elegant bitterhet i ettersmaken. God til siste dråpe.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours mahogany with an off-white head. Getting a hoppy, grassy aroma (slight citrus). Taste is hops upfront with an underlying malt sweetness. Slightly bitter back end. Lively carbonation that you can feel on tip of tongue and back of throat. Alcohol is masked pretty decently, but can feel it in the head pretty quickly.
Pretty good beer. Might not be a go to beer, but will probably get again.

Smells of uber sweet malt. Aroma is nice medium brown with lacing and head. Tastes fairly balanced, a little heavy on the malt, but it is not too sweet. Creamy. Good.

pours deep ruby amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is a wonderful sweet floral and orange citrus. The orange citrus comes through in the taste as well. Hoppy, but not all that bitter. Almost a bitter-sweetness that follows all the way through the finish. Very mild bitter linger. The 8.7% alcohol is masked incredibly well. Not boozy at all. This is really good beer. Seems every Oskar Blues I try is another home run! They’re in the IPA zone.
