2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
$4 for a half liter at the local beer store. A new addition to their shelf. Very pretty bottle, foil top and all and the bottle is unique in shape. Yes, a sweet candy aroma. Appears to be a little darker than your typical pale lager but it certainly is not a ’dark’ beer per se. Scummy creamy thin head. Taste is a tad strong, wouldn’t think of this as an octoberfest IMHO. Shows its 6% rather forward on the palate. Decent carbonation for a stronger brew. Finish is a tad medicinal and hangs for a while. Overall, nears a strong lager session experience. A little more than what was expected in personality and strength.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske 0,5l kjøpt fra Alko Muonio. Mørk gyldenbrun på farge. Et høyt kremaktig skum som varte lenge. Pent å se på. Veldig forsiktig aroma: Svak duft av søt frukt. Lite kullsyre. Smaken er behagelig og forsiktig med masse nyanser av ristet malt, frukt og krydder. Smaken sitter lenge i og etterhvert dukker det opp litt tørr bitterhet. KI=5

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Frothy head on top of an amber/orange color. Aroma of maple cookies and bread. Sweet and syrupy mouthfeel that is balanced nicely by some faint pine hop notes. Somewhat bitter finish, but incredibly smooth. Liquid sweet bread in a bottle.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Kind of sweet with some slight bitters in the end. Very short finish. Kind of forgettable. It’s not bad, not in the least. If it’s there, it’s OK. I might even get it again. It was at Whole Foods and rather cheap. Especially if I want one beer with a sandwich for dinner--this will do. Didn’t taste like it had that many malts to me. Mostly just sweet, with sugar and candy flavors.

Pours red with a foamy head the nose is malts and sugars. The taste is nectar like and has sweet bite, the after taste settles back on the palate and stays for a long time.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2009 50cl bottle. Clear deep copper, creamy off white head. Sweet artificial vanilla on the nose, little alcohol, plastic, sugar, reminds of some cream ale. Flavor is solventy alcohol, stodgy syrupy malts, very rusty and dull finish, modest bitterness, no aroma hopping. Almost medium bodied, strong but soft carbonaton. Sadly reminds me of Sofiero Original Ale somehow, just stronger. Malt liquor for the oktoberfest-season.

16.9oz bottle 10/1/09 (Sam’s Wine & Spirits)-Pours a medium amber with a big off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and toffee. Taste of the same with some more sweetness and caramel coming through. This medium bodied brew is quite tasty and is a big surprise. I was expecting much worse. Nice job.
