2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.75l bottle. This is a blurry peachy colored beer with a medium sized bubbly almost beige head. On the aroma I get some sweet candy-bubblegum, actually reminds me of the smell I used to get when I smelled on the bag where I had my candy on new years eve! Light apples and yeast also. Not extreme or anything, more subtle. It has a soft oily to almost watery texture and a average carbonation level. Mild yeast-fruity flavors. More apples, and also perhaps some pear. A low mild bitterness all the way before it ends with a light metallic finish. Well, definitely not the best I’ve had from these guys, but it’s drinkable. Won’t buy again though. 25.06.2012

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours clear dark golden with a huge off-white head. Aroma of malts, spices and dusty hops. Taste is smooth malty, with a nice woody touch which I suspect is the chicory, along with some nice nutty malts and light hops at the end, good. Well carbonated.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl. It pours an unclear deep orange body with a finger thick off-white head. The aroma has a herbal, forestish touch as well as lightly citrusy scent with caramel maltiness. Semi sweet caramel flavour with some herbal notes and a nice bitterness. Pleasant carbonation, medium to full body. Lightly citrusy finish with pleasant bitterness. Overall, a quite pleasant one but it well never be a favourite of mine. 120728
