3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.0%. Deep golden to amber colour, large white head. Strong sourish-fruity aroma with notes of oranges and distinct spices. Fairly sweet (but not "thick") flavour, again with strong notes of oranges and spices, while the hops are very moderate. Warming mouthfeel. I like it!
