500ml can -

First, a big thank you goes out to my buddy Brian for bringing me this back on his last trip to Romania. Those poor souls in Romania...ugh..some of the beers he’s brought back were good and others were just plain awful. This one was all that bad though. It suprised me with the level of hops that was found, with a bit of spicy hop note. The beer seemed overly attenuated, with a dry, chemical-like aftertaste. Almost no malt character, esp for a dunkel. Maybe the 7% comes from the extra sweetness that should be there? The beer looked like rusty rain water in my glass with a light tan frothy head.

Holmen1 (3410) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2015
0,5 boks (takk til Petro!), på Action mars-15: klar rødlig rav med tett skum som varer. Mild aroma av maltsødme, fiken og overmodne solbær. Saftig smak med en lett tørrhet i avslutningen gjør den meget lettdrikkelig, og vitamininnholdet holder seg diskret i bakgrunnen.

mike_77 (3890) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2015
Mahogany brown with thin head. Strong malty aroma almost whiskey-like. Flavour also has an intense maltiness with a touch of caramel and wood. Nicely bitter in the finish.
