3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Biggish offwhite head. Clear amber body with light carbonation.
Light fruity peppery aroma with caramelly notes. Dry dusty
pineapple taste with mealy papery notes. Mid-bodied. Dusty,
empty mouthfeel. Dry fruity dusty peppery aftertaste with
strawberry notes. It’s OK, but not really a success. Something
off with the emptiness of the flavour. Grew on me as I drank,
though, and eventually I quite enjoyed it. (0.5l bottle, ICA

Bought at ICA Sortland. Golden copper body with a thin white head. Slight fruity aroma with some hops, toffee and a touch of licorice. Moderate sweetness. I don’t care much for the metallic finish, though. Overall a pretty decent beer. Misleading label!

Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber colour with a pretty big frothy off-white head, soap-like. Quite carbonated aswell. Aromas of sweet malt, fudge, candy, herbs, caramel, and some sweet berries and hops. Sweet flavours of caramel, wood, and some metal, hops and oak. A touch of burned wood in the end, Light to medium bitterness, and a soft mouth feel. A decent Premium Bitter/ESB.
