2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750ml bottle shared by Finn. Hazy, grey-golden body covered by a solid, rocky white head. Modest smell of coriander, wheat and dry fruits. Sweet fruity taste, including ripe and dry oranges, and a bite of mild spices. On the sweet side of bittersweet to the ending. Rather pale and bland mouthfeel (big bottle session with Finn, MrSoul and janeriks in Tromsø, 15.02.2012).

Pours a clear/pale yellow body (when the sediment is added this is turned into a murky one). White fizzy head. Weak aroma: only some citric notes. Moderately bitter, citric flavour. Not well balanced. Fast to forget.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Big bottle, from bestillingsutvalget, Vinmonopolet. A shiny white foamy top, over a muddy greyish-yellow body. Yeast aroma up front, followed by a soapy and perfumed smell. Taste is fairly dry and harsh grainy. Edgy, with notes of stale bittering hops and tannins. Cardboardy, astingent mouthfeel. Harsh, spiced malt finish. Not very good.
