Bottle, 6.0%. Very spicy and herbal aroma, mostly oregano. Cloudy yellow colour. Small white head. The flavour has more thyme or something. Also some oregano. OK malt base, rough hop flavour. Quite strange, but not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A hazy, golden beer topped by a small off-white head. Origanum and basil, a hint of cloves maybe, and caramel maltyness on the nose. The flavor is pretty much the same, caramel topped by herbs and spices. Medium to full body and a herbal finish. A quite decent beer, probably in need of some food, but on it’s own it’s to herbal for me. 100213

(Draught at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen, 19 June 2010) Hazy amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, spicy nose with notes of herbs (basil, sage, sweet gale) and citrus. Fruity, spicy taste with citrus, herbs (oregano, basil, sage), hints of washing-up liquid and a slightly bittersweet finish. Medium body, fairly sweet. Very herbal. Weird beer, but drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Nice ehad with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are dominated by spices. This beer really lives up to its style. The spices are oregano, thyme, tarragon and basil, but there is also honey, malt and hops in this beer. All in all a little on the odd side.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with an off-white head. Massive oregano and thyme aroma. Hmm… not sure I’m really into this. Sweetish and tart notes in the background. Can’t help but thinking of breadsticks every time I put my nose in the glass. Flavour is equally an oregano/thyme-assault on the senses, but for some reason it becomes rather vermouth-like here (!). Weird. Bitter finish with some hop notes in between the remainder of the oregano. Overall, this is actually a well-made beer as such, but what can I say… I’m just not into oregano and thyme in beer! 04.06.10.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drayght. Unclear brown. Quite spiced (oregano,thyme, pepper) aroma with caramel. Ok mouthfeel. Spiced (oregano, thyme, basil) caramel flavour with toasted malt. Interesting, good for cooking a pig roast or with pizza... but not by itself.
