3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle. Cloudy brown with orange highlights and a sloppy off-white head that disappears almost completely. Caramel, orange and flowers in the nose. Rich malty taste at first beefed up by a crisp orange zest bitterness. Clean finish with a slightly sweet aftertaste. Straight ahead brown ale but well done all the same.

Smuttynose Old Brown Dog is ok but not a style standout. Clear brown pour with a fizzy head that disappears too quickly. Aroma is sweet and a bit hoppy. Taste is sweet but flat and kind of thin. Old Brown Dog is drinkable but nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske fra helsekosten på Kvaddå, delt med Ovesen mens vørteren koker i Grainfather: brunlig rav med kort, storboblet skum. Urter og malt i aroma, i tillegg litt innslag av kjeks, røde bær og mørke fløtekarameller i smaken. Slank, med en tørr og behagelig lett bitterhet i avslutningen - glir sorgløst innenfor snippen.

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 24.01.15. Muddy brown. Small, pale brown head. Not much lacing. Some aroma of brittle, dark caramel and dark malt. Similar taste, with hints of unfermented wort. Low bitterness, but high drinkakability.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet Chocolate and nut flavor on the aroma. Hop aroma is low. Appearance is a hazy brown with an off white head. Flavor has notes of toasted bread with a medium bitterness from the hops. Mouthfeel is medium with a medium level of carbonation. Overall, it's a good tasting sessionable beer. Personally, I would prefer more hop flavor and aroma.
