3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2009 330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Reddy, lightly hazy, brown, with a brief head. Slightly sweet, thin and metallic aroma. Crisp carbonation, retronasals a bit alcoholic, but quite pleasantly grainy. Taste a touch yeasty, fairly richly roasted grains, some liquorice. Bitterness quite biting and potent - leaves a tingle in the mouth, exacerbated by the carbonation certainly. Long finish pleasantly grainy. Initially a bit wanting in a few dimensions, it improves as it warms, and the various components work together synergistically.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml green bottle with a long, thin neck. Bought at Vinmonopolet a long time ago (bb.29.09.09). Medium, off-white head. Deep amber-brown body. Mild malty aroma with a discreet touch of yeast. Flavour of fruit-filled, sweet malts, slightly roasted. Not enough bitterness in the finish to counter all the sweetness. Foamy in the mouth (Tromsø, 21.02.2009).
