3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tap] Draught at WOB in Evanston. Poured into snifter. Even amber color with a dense white head. Sweet malty aroma of rye, caramel, wood and some fruit. Earthy and dusty malts mix with bitter resinous hops. Well hidden ABV. Hard to pinpoint it, but I enjoyed this and found it pretty drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange, very small off white head. Aroma a little fruity, with some grainy malt. Medium body. Not much alcohol. Flavor is sweet but not too syrupy. At first some malt, a tad bland but brightens up with a crisp hoppy finish. Not bad. What’s next, double light lagers?

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Copper clear, white head. Smells of honey, resins, wood, hops and malt. Moderate sweet, sirupy, honey,resins and wood. Quite typical malt and hop bill for Southern Tier beers. Quite clean flavor, medium bitter which is quite woody. Very nice stuff

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a murky gold with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Mild aroma of malt with a few weak bready notes. The flavor is malt, somewhat grainy, with some light caramel sweetness followed by some mild lemon. Mild bitterness at the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a light amber body with a large creamy white head. Nose is pale malts, red berries, straw and hints of corn, apricot and a faint trace of sulfur. Taste is caramel, alcohol, straw, nut and hints of red fruits and herbs. Medium to full body, soft to medium carbonation. Semi-dry finish with quite a bit of booze in the aftertaste. Decent enough, but I’d rather enjoy a nice "single" steam beer; this is not the best of genres to pump up IMO.
