3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fra fat på OMB nov-13: nydelig kobberfarge med et tett skum som følger med hele veien. Her er det mye å glede seg med sammenlignet med deres pils: fast og fin maltkropp, god munnfølelse og tydelig men balansert og fruktig bitterhet (EKG og Liberty). God fra første til siste slurk.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is an underwhelming beer. There is some sort of infection, somewhat buttery and oxidized. Smooth mouthfeel is the high point.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Oslo Mikrobryggeri, november 20th 2012. An old favorite of mine years ago, this brew is no longer as exciting. Not due to changes in the beer i suppose, more probably the explosion of quality micro brews recent years and my palate changing. Still not a bad steamer though. It’s got a clear copper body with a good white head. Light fruity hop aroma with hints of chocolate, and crisp malt. Taste of cara malt, hops, lightly roasted. Dry palate, marked but not strong bitterness, and a aftertaste of hay and caramel. I still like it, even if it’s kind of boring in todays beer scene compared to how it used to be.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. Drak golden with a white head. Aroma of caramel and malt with some hops and hints of fruit. Medium body. Quite nice and good as a thirst quencher, but a bit to sweet for me. Some bitterness in the finish, but not enough to balance the caramel sweetness. Ok. (2012-05-26)

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught @ Oslo Mikrobryggeri. Darker amber to brown coloured beer. Very little carbonation with a small white head. Sweet malty and slightly buttery oxidated/ infected aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is light malty sweet herby bitter touched. I’m afraid this one is slightly infected. Still ok but a shame.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Quite hoppy flavour and aroma, but a generous amount of malts as well. I didn’t go down all that well in my book, but in any way bad. A deep red colour and a medium head made it a most inviting pour. (tap@brew pub)

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
On tap @ Oslo Mikrobryggeri, Oslo. Dark bronze body, medium off-white head. Strong, almost overwhelming buttery tones in the aroma again, caramel, and some fruity tones hidden well in the back. Taste is buttery dark malty tones and hints of nondescript fruit muddling around. Another weak specimen from Oslo Mikrobryggeri.
