visionthing (3291) - Oslo, - FEB 13, 2013
50cl bottle from Varnaveien mineralvann. Pours clear amber with an off-white head. Lightly malty aroma with caramel and notes of fruits and hops. Hints of roasty notes too. Sweet and lightly malty and fruity with mild hoppy bitterness in the finish. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Quite well balaced and easy to drink. Light to medium body with average carbonation. A bit weak in flavour and slightly boring, but still refreshing and nice enough.

Body is medium, slightly foamy, touch of carbonation. Taste has burnt toffee, slight ash, malt-forward. Average sweet malty bitter.
