2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ OMB. Clear amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma is vague caramel malt, some fruity yeast and hops. Flavor is malt, caramel, bread, fruity and a descent bitter finish. It’s a Vienna, but actually not very far away from an English bitter. A rather light thirst-quencher.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. I finally got to meet Rune in Oslo, and we shared a few pints at OMB. Luckily for both of us, they had a new beer on, but unfortunately it was a quite boring one. It poured clear, copper-colored with a small off-white head. Some roasted notes, caramel and hints of metal in the aroma. The flavor is lightly roasted with some hops. Medium to thin body. The finish has a decent level of bitterness, and some caramel. After a while the house-character occurs. (061120)

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2006 Two pints at the brewpub. Clear and deep amber body. Almost no head at all. Dark, lightly malted aroma. Notes of plums and dark berries in flavour with a bruch of roasted barley. Short bitter end. A bit thin and crispated impression (enjoyed during some interesting beer talks with Yngwie 20.11.2006).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Small short-lasting off-white head. Slightly hazed red-brown body. Nose is mainly sweet caramel, also some delicate floral and fruity hops. Taste is rather hop-bitter for the style. Flavors of cream-caramel, dark sweetish fruits and toasted malt. Light and fresh mouthfeel. A little different "bayer", but exciting and highly drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
1 pint draught. Deep dark reddish hue. Sparklingly clear. High in carbonation (as expected). Medium-sized off-white head that clings to the glass. Spiced fruity aroma and some fusel-like aromas. Served very cold (as expected). Nutty malt aromas and slightly acidic. Caramel/crystal malt and some really aromatic malts, melanoidin perhaps. Burnt aromatics. Bready sugar flavours, but still just medium-bodied close to thin-bodied. Surprisingly hoppy when it enters the tongue leaving a grassy floral impression, and a good dose of hop bitterness. Aroma felt a little unbalanced, but the flavours are actually quite nice and rather complex for a "bayer". Smooth texture and feels only a little sweet., but that is nicely balanced by bitterness. Little hops in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium white body. Red body with carbonation and faint haziness. Acidic harmonic aroma of wild berries and bread. Slightly odd. Bitter, resiny hop taste initially, followed by dry roasty malt taste. Bitter taste lingers. Hmmmm. They must have put quite a bit of hops into this, maybe more than suits such a thin-bodied beer. Quite good, and very drinkable. Served too cold, as usual. (0.5l on tap.)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Deep copper-coloured with a medium white head. Faint fruity caramel aroma with gingerbread undertones. Malty caramel flavours, ryebread, good hoppy dryness. Light to medium body. The best bayer (dunkel) in Norway?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fine amber beer, nice smell of hops. An all right Münchener type of lager, light and easy-drinking. Too sweet for my taste.
