Aroma: Caramel, light hops, medicinal/old plastic plasters Appearance: Clear copper body. Off-white, fizzy head. No lacing. Flavour: Medium bread, light bitterness, slight acidity Palate: Medium-high carbonation, light body. Overall: The smell is off-putting! The taste is OK, but not for a bitter.

Foffern (1294) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a golden amber colour topped with an off-white-colored, medium head. Its aroma is characterized by fudge, hops, leather, bread and some dried fruit and cardamom. The taste does not possess as much complexity, but rather malty with touches of leather and hops, and dry in the finish. Mouth feel is smooth, while the bitterness is at a medium level. In summary the flavour did not follow up the aroma that had several interesting items, and felt a little unbalanced but with a decent hoppy touch.
