2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle. Clear golden brown. High carbonation level creates a normal head which subsides after a while. Quite a bit of hop bitterness compared to malt sweetness and depth. Thin body. The malts do not stand out in this beer at all. Rather disappointing. Clearly made as a session beer and to be an easily drinkable Christmas beer for the masses.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
30.11.2008, 0,33l Bottle. The colour is amber pale brown. The aroma is thin malty. From the colour of this I expected more taste. Very low on hops, both aroma and bitternes.

Clear dark red brown color with a tiny tan head. Caramel aroma, light sweetness with a soft carbonation, short bitter finish.
Its a shame norwegian stores arent allowed to sell stronger beer, thats the only reason this exists

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle enjoyed at home
Deep copper brown, 1 cm tanned head. Smells of caramel, burned malts and hints of rubber. Taste is quite light for the color, quite drinkable too with some sweetness. , but not enough to make it a balanced beer. A little dry on the palate and a bitter finish

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Medium brown body with a short-lived, light brown head, some lacing. The aroma is surprisingly nice: lots of malty notes with caramel, fruits, berries (I think I get black currant) and raisins. The taste is medium+ sweet with this strange Ringnes bitterness in the finish. Roasted notes, caramel, malt extract, melted sugar. Quite good body, but with metallic hints. Next!
