Nice malty caramel aroma with a hint of fruity hop aroma. Taste is very much the same as the aroma. Not a bad amber ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske: Endnu en øl købt på en campingplads. Mørk ravfarvet med et kæmpe skumhoved. Kraftig duft af malt og hårdt ristet kaffe. Næsten for overdøvende i smagen, men den går an.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy but definitely red, with a lasting head. Malty nutty smell to this one. A quick hop bite that moves on to a walnut bitter as it fades. Leaves a slight aftertaste of nut and grain.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a finger of head on a clear red colored body.
The aroma is grainy and danky or earthy. Not bad, but tough to like.
The taste is heavy on the malt, touch of caramel, fairly sweet, mild grapefruit bitterness in the middle.
The texture is sticky and a little heavy.
This amber ale drinks like a double red ale.
