Large, creamy, off-white head. Excellent lacing. Sparkling, medium-particled, thick, dark-yellow body. Aroma: heavily malty, molasses, lightly yeasty and honey. IF: light sweetness and bitterness. FF: light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Average duration. Palate: medium body, creamy texture, lively/soft carbonation and metallic finish. A gorgeous appearance, one of the most appealing I’ve ever seen for a Lager. It hides very well its high alcohol content. As a matter of fact, it gives quite a character to the style. Great presence of malt and good sweetness/bitterness balance, which could be a little less incisive, but I believe its high ABV is responsible for such trait. Its sweetness is similar to a Malt Liquor’s. 120s

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2009
500 ml bottle. Amber colour. Small white head. Hints of apple. Light on the caramel. Surprisingly little aroma. Strong malty flavours once it enters the mouth. Warming alcohol. Grainy malts with a little caramel. Sharp hop bitterness come through when swallowing. Gets a little cloying, but the body is light. Way too much alcohol in a beer this thin. Almost pointless. Try some of their other beers instead.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2009 0.5l bottle (9%) courtesy of and shared with ogivlado who brought it from ČR (thanks!).
Poured an orange body with a big, thick and lasting off white head. Grainy fruity and dusty nose, some light alcohol. The taste is pretty much alcohol with orangey sweet sticky maltiness, slightly cloying but not as much as they can get. Kinda spicy and overall not all that bad.
