3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. Deep coppery body, small white creamy head. Aroma is roasty tones, red fruits and hints of nuts. Quite mild, as expected. Taste is more pronounced: almonds, roasty toffee tones and hints of peaches, mellow malts and grass. Soft to medium carbonation. Highly drinkable and well tuned indeed; what a quantum leap from the commercial versions of this style like Murphy’s. Nice stuff.

Bottle. Pours a deep brownish read with a medium, beige head. Aroma is pine, citrus, passion fruit, some caramel. Taste begins piney, turning into caramel and nutty malts and finishes citrusy with some caramel and woodiness and tones of nuttiness. Palate is alright, a bit light, not much carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. This is a clear deep red beer with a bubbly off-white head. The aroma is red and kinda fruity, tones of sweet red berries and malty. It has a average carbonation level and a kinda watery to oily mouthfeel. Light bitter and really dry flavors. Some light burned tones mixed with fruits, malts and soap. Ends with a nice little bitter finish. Not to bad this one actually, not even after a couple of great beers that I just had.
