Bottle. A clear, pale amber beer with a small off-white head. Caramel, towards toffee, some hoppy notes. Utterly boring, both aroma and flavor. Peachy hints in the flavor, some bitterness towards the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Nothing interesting going on here. 131019

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2013
0.5l bottle. This is a deep dark bronze colored one with a medium sized really bubbly off-white top. On the nose it’s get a dry woody kinda fruity aroma with a little bit of dry caramel and a general nice sweetness. Smells absolutely decent this. It’s surprisingly bitter in the taste. Lots of dry bitterness and also a good amount of roastiness. Wood as well, like chewing on a coffee table in remember we had when it was younger. A floral bitterness rounds it off. It has some flavor this, but it’s not necessary something in have to hunt down for a second go. 29.04.2013
