3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep clear golden with large white frothy head leaving a creamy film behind. Aroma is very inviting - a good balance of lighter malts and hops. Taste matches the aroma - malty sweet and both aromatic and bitter hops. Light to medium body and smooth to drink. Excellent beer.
After my initial notes I had some grilled chorizo and other salty grilled food together with the beer. Worked well together.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle, 6.3% ABV, from Systembolaget, Kiruna. Rocky, white head over a clear gold coloured body. Modest smell of malt and grass. Lactose-like malts in flavour followed by a sharp and rather acidulous hoppy taste. Notes of alcohol. Medium bodied. Went down alright with the food (shared with Eva, Tromsø 24.01.2010).

Great lager. An intense taste not too bitter. Holds a very malty taste and good carbonation. However, nothing special here, just a nice balanced lager.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The color was light yellow and the foam was very large. The aroma contained flowers, butter, bread and malt.
The taste was not too spectacular, bread, malt. Decent bitterness but I would have liked to have more flavor. Aftertaste was a bit light metallic and liquid rather thin.

Flaske 0,5l. Gylden farge. Pent kremaktig skum som blir litt lavt men stabiliserer seg. Uvanlig kombinasjon av frukt og røstet malt går som en rød tråd gjennom aroma og smak. En anelse røyksmak i avslutningen. KI=6
