3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’m frankly surprised this is Redhooks flagship beer. It seems really harsh. It does it’s job as far as alcohol goes, but it’s a difficult way to get there. Not anywhere near as smooth as their seasonal NutBrown, or the Blackhook. Still, by all means, if there isn’t a Rogue or Bridgeport alternative, don’t start reverting to Sam Adams! ;) I wonder what this beer would taste like on Nitro as they did with their IPA, (on tap) . . .

Fruity, sweet, plums. Nice amber colour, white head. A bit too sweet for beer. Plum wine carbonated...

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Limpido color ambrato con soffice cappello bianco di schiuma. Una bitter luppolata, biscottata e delicatamente fruttata con note amarognole di caramello. Corpo ed effervescenza lievi, struttura un po’ acquosa. Dissetante.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle at Café Sånn in Tromsø. Slowly diminishing pearl white head. Amber coloured body with a slight haze. Moderate, mixed hopped aroma of lemon and grass, malty sweetness beneath. Well blended, succulent taste of orange, lemon, and mild caramel sustained by a bittersweet ending. Fine bodied. Fresh and soft in the mouth. A nice partner to my Tromsø fish burger (05.06.2014).
