2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Old rating, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Sødmerik lukt med preg av karamellmalt, humle, nøtter, litt gras og toffee. Sødmerik smak med preg av karamellmalt, humle, sukker, nøtter og høy. Middels bitterhet og lengde. Kjedelig.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Big yellowish airy head. Clear amber to red colour. Aroma caramel and roasted malt. Taste is a bit weird. almost medium sweet, light bitter, light sour. Caramel and washing cloth. Finish is light bitter, light sour, again washing cloth. Promising aroma with disappointing beer hidden underneath. Definitely not worth the 79 style rating, slightly below average vienna for me.

02.07.2011. 0,33l Bottle. Vinmonopolet Bergen - Valkendorfsgaten. Golden yellow colour with white head. Aroma is malty, with medium to thin body. Moderate to low on bitterness. Its the malt that gives this beer its flavours. Short, and rather thin aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
25/08 0.33 l bottle from from Coop store, Gradisca d’Isonzo. It poured amber body with smaller to medium sized head that disappeared soon. Sweet caramel and wood aroma, touch of alcohol. Fine, slightly bitter wood and earthy flavor balanced with lot of sweetish caramel. A bit strange and interesting, but pleasant. Medium bodied with a bit more pronounced dryness in the finish. Pretty fine, though nothing special for a vienna really.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark amber with a large, fading head.
Nose shows lots of caramel and melanoidins. Pretty good stuff.
Very similar flavours but a cooked vegetable character creeps in which detracts from the sweet malt.
Nice light body and moderate carbonation.
