larsga (6824) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2013
Medium beige head. Clear amber body with carbonation. Roasty toffee aroma with nutty caramelly fruity notes. Dry-sweet nutty earthy caramelly taste with roasty dried fruit notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish caramelized sugar and toffee aftertaste with earthy resiny wooden dried fruit and spice notes. The finish lingers for a long time, with traces of rye crisp bread. Complex, interesting, highly drinkable. A very good beer. (0.5l bottle, Meny Oslo City.)

Nice one. Hops with some malt, barley and even some fruity moments. Drinkable, bit thin and watery end. Nothing special, but an ok one.
