2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Clear, pale golden colour. Inch-thick offwhite head that quickly reduces to a thin ring, no lacing. Dusty hop aroma with some alcohol sweetness. Medium body, average carbonation, slick, drinkable mouthfeel. Taste has initially a good malt/hop balance, but is soon replaced by an excessively sweet and alcoholic mid-taste. Slight bitterness in the finish.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet.
Looks like an amber lager. Some dirty hops in the nose, but not much.
Sweet, sugary body, too much white sugar. Not working as a pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33l bottle. Pours a clear golden body with a nice little bubbly white head. Aroma is on the sweet and malty side with notes of thin watery hops. Body is medium, texture surprisingly nice and smooth and it’s average carbonated. Quite grainy flavors and has a good sweetness from all the malts. It’s also light peachy with lots of nice caramel and quite low on the bitterness. Finishes off with a mild pungent finish and a longasting malty aftertaste with notes of some alcohol. A quite nice pale if you ask me.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a clear deep light amber body with a small white top. Aroma is faint tones of pale malts and slightly fruity hops. Weak. Taste is sweet pale malts, hints of molasses and syrup. Near-cloying sweetness and total lack of fruit makes this a poor pale ale in my book. Moreover, it tastes, smells and looks more like a lager beer to me; very little is reminiscent of a classic English ale, at least. Boring and too sweet, but not foul or undrinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours bright clear amber with a sponge toffee head. Very malty aroma, lots of toast, toffee, and breadcrusts. After resting, hints of cooked peaches come forward. Very malty palate, without the fruit hinted at in the aroma. Minimal hop character. Medium bodied. Almost doppelbockish really. I actually quite enjoyed it.
