3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Bottle looks like picture, but scans 2011 version and is bottled 9/2/13. Golden slight ly hazy color, good foam. Immediate hops and caramel; quite high viscosity and hop juice like. Also aromas of citrus and ok fruitiness- some vanuilla in the end. Medium/full body & high complexity. Some sweetness, but also nice bitterness.Enjoyable- but too much caramel and sweetness for my taste- but maybe a year on the bottle is way to much for this beer

Bottle 65 ml. Hazy orange with a small white head. Very hoppy, ripe fruity nose with herbal accents. Taste is sweet, toasted caramel mixed with greasy, almost oily piney, grapefruity hops. Full bodied, harsh and almost rancid heavy bitter finish. A little too bozzy and head on for my liking. No subbtleness.
