Reddish amber, white head. Overripe pear and caramel in aroma. Unattractive taste and aftertaste of overripe pears and apples, as well as cucumber and hay.Overall impression is uninviting. Batch 186. Did something go wrong?

Flaske batch 186, kjøpt på Matkroken Stokka, delt med Ovesen ombord på Fridtjofen: kobberfarget med kortvarig gardinskum. Lukter overmoden pære. Smak av nevnte pære, slangeagurk og gress. Gjester ikke til tranfigelse. Har de hatt et uhell, eller svikter kvalitetskontrollen?

Slogen is a average pale ale. Lacking some freshness and dying a little bit in the finish. Will consider buying it again though.

A bit thin and weak in taste

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In short: An inoffensive amateurish citrusy pale ale. meh
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed fresh the day after purchase in a Norway store
The look: Mostly cloudy burnt orange body topped by a small off-white head
In long: Nose is a bit citrusy, cat fur and notes of tobacco. Taste is crème caramel, too much yeast, oranges, ripe apricots, vegetal notes. Fluffy body with a lot of big bubbles, foamy mouthfeel. An overall sensation of an amateurish beer. The bottling date is written on the bottle, I drank my bottle one month after the bottling date but it felt like an old tired pale ale. Fortunately it is not very flavourful so all-in-all it is more an inoffensive boring beer than a bad beer. Tick. Trollbryggeriet is the “Troll Brewery” because Norway is rooted in myths and legends, and after travelling this country I now feel like I’m some kind of Norwegian god except without the power, adoration, wisdom, etc... basically what I’m trying to say is most people don’t care if I exist or not.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours cloudy amber look with a thin timid white head. Slight malty and caramel aroma, some sweet nose too. Medium to heavy sweetness on the taste. Lack of character and it gets watery. Light body, thin feel, soft carbonation, weak bitter finish. Bad batch or what? Nothing special.
