Fra kran på bryggeripuben 25 Jun 13. Dyp amber. Lavt, litt farget skum. God plomme-/sviskearoma. Smaken innholdsrik: Syrlig frukt. Ettersmaken blir litt anonym. Veldig bra øl - styrken tatt i betraktning.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 L swing-top bottle, picked up @Ølhandleriet, Mathallen, Oslo. Pours an almost clear, bright brownish red body. A layer of beige fisheyes on top. Initial aroma of mild leafy and minty hops. Followed by vague notes of berries and toasted malts. Barely any carbonation. Slick mouthfeel. Light to medium full body. Clean flavors. Dry, light peppery, lightly toasted malt base. Just the right amount of minty, grassy/leafy and light resinous hops. Appears very well balanced. Could need some more carbonation (blame it on the swing-top). Otherwise, a highly drinkable and more than decent beverage.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A full bodied red beer of low abv offering nice fruitiness and nice citrusy and herbal hops. Superior session beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Almost clear dark red body topped by a small medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose is toasted fruit cake, dried berries and light notes of grassy/herbal hops Taste is surprising fruity with a nice fresh fruits sensation that includes wild berries, non-sour red cherries, cranberries, blueberries and more… All than wrapped in a thin layer of caramel and then the whole thing spread on a slice of toasted bakery quality bread. The taste ends with a moderately hoppy finish with citrusy and herbal hops creating a dry and slightly dry finish. This is a very good thirst beer that offers a surprisingly good complexity. Something about the whole thing felt original, something I rarely find in session amber ales. A good beer, and if the whole word would drink a pint of beer at the same, there would be world peace for 30 minutes, that’s something to ponder about.
