Bottle, 75 cl bought in Valdres. Dark colour, almost no carbonation. Earthy tones, interesting but a bit flat - abrupt finish.

Appearance: Clear pale brownish color with a small tan head that ends up in almost nothing.
Aroma: Sweet malty and mild herbal.
Palate: Medium to light body. A bit sweet and a very mild bitterness. Soft carbonation. Oily texture.
Taste: Mild sweet malty, berry fruity and light herbal.
Overall impression: Unbelievable dull and flat. I was so happy when I spotted this one. I do normally fancy herbal ale like this a lot. I will probably have to go to Valdres and get a proper example.
Personal stats: On tap at Smak av Valdres (Vulkan - Mathallen) in Oslo, Norway.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2013 Fra fat på Valdres Gardsbryggeri: hoi, hoi, dette er godsaker som var verdt den 47 mil lange kjøreturen! Dyp gylden med fint skum i glasset, tappet av bryggeren selv. Herlig duft av einer, og smaken er midt i blinken for de som liker at øl smaker av noe mer enn det norske industribryggerier mener vi fortjener. Et fremragende brygg, friskt, godt balansert og med stor munnfylde og deilig ettersmak. Jeg går umiddelbart til strategisk støtteinnkjøp. Den særdeles hyggelige bryggeren ga meg full omvisning og en del interessant informasjon: deres hovedmalt er Weyermann pilsnermalt og de bruker i hovedsak Tettnanger (bitter) og EKG (smak og aroma). Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff juni-13: huffda, dette ble en gedigen skuffelse. Flate saker med litt smak av einer og popcorn. Ned fra 4 til 2.8. Må sjekke min egen beholdning, kanskje dette er en utpreget ferskvare.

Huge 1,5 liter bottle from Meny Grønland Torg, Oslo, consumed for Christmas Eve breakfast 2011; paired with loads of awesome small dishes and a shot of aquavit. :-) Deep amber body, medium white head. Nose is caramel, pale malts, grains, juniper and hints of pine. Taste is roasty malts, grains, juniper and hints of herbs and nuts. Nice and mellow, with a medium carbonation that suits well. Not too horribly exciting, but original enough and a fair match with the aquavit.

larsga (7117) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2010
Medium beige head. Deep amber body with light carbonation. Fruity earthy aroma with herbal papery perfumy notes. Dry resiny earthy herbal taste with roasty papery fruity notes. Thinnish body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry roasty perfumy aftertaste with fruity papery straw notes, faintly watery. Light pepper, as well. Quite nice and fairly unusual. (0.75l bottle, Meny Grønland Torg, Oslo.)
