2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear deep golden color with a fine white head. Fine off white head. Malty, mild bready and some herbal notes. Medium body. Fine balance between sweetness and bitterness. Average carbonation. Caramel malty, mild bready and a bit herbal. Utterly boring brew! I can eat rakfisk. But not with this brew. I will not drink this brew agin.
[Bottle from Meny Solsiden in Trondheim, Norway]

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A white whale this one. I’ve been searching for it the last two years at least. And suddenly there it was: a 0,5 l bottle at Lerøy Mat, Galleriet, Bergen. The best before date is August 2015, so this could be a new batch.
Pours a misty golden body with a dense light brown small head. Wooden caramel nose. Sweet, acidic and bitter. Malty, caramel sauce. Medium body and a lasting papery, bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It’s a golden-colored unclear beer with a dense, off-white head of two-finger size. Lacings left. The aroma has a lightly smoked hint, with something reminiscent of sour milk in the far back. Farmhouse notes, barnyard, dust and pine cones blends in. Sweet flavor with smoked notes, some farm-notes and pine cones. Medium body, nice carbonation, and a finish with bitterness and citrus peel. Overall I think it’s a bit sweet for rakfisk, but it’s a fine beer anyway. 120914

330 ml bottle. Deep golden body with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is grainy and fruity with a light hint of farmhouse. Flavor is sweet malt and a fruity with some kind of sweet almost harsh bitterness. Not bad, but a bit unusually in flavor.
