50 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 06.07.2013
Aroma has anise, licorice and herbal notes – feels like a fresh bottle of Gouden Carolus Christmas. Flavour is quite spicy with herbal notes, rosemary, some anise and hints of licorice. Aroma was nice but I find the rosemary in the flavour quite disturbing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff 2.pinsedag: i dette tempel for den gode ølopplevelse ble dette en uinteressant affaære. Snev av sitronmelisse og andre urter som lavendel og rosmarin fra klosterhagen hjelper ikke når hovedinntrykket er hostesaft (anis). Tonene fra Ketelbys In a Monastery Garden var langt vekke.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from duty free shop on DFDS cruise (Copenhagen, Denmark)
Pours a deep clear amber color. Minimal off-white head that leaves a thin lace on the glass. Aroma of cereal, herbs, spruce, and a little bit of citrus, but still not as complex as it reads on paper. Texture is pretty thin. This is the best that I’ve had from Skands, but I’m still not impressed.
