Bottle from Fenakroken. Pours ruddy brown, quite hazy. Interesting milk chocolate caramel aroma. Complex ginger bread and chocolate flavours matched by grassy hops. A slight hint of metal. Difficult to place style-wise. A dry dunkel, maybe? Abolutely worth trying even without rakfisk. yngwie (17261) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle. It’s a bit hazy, this golden beer with an orangey tint, and topped by a two-finger off-whte head soon diminishing into a thin layer of bubbles. Nice lacings. Some yeastyness on the nose, but mostly a caramel maltyness with pale malts and a touch of fruits. Medium body, a bit more effervescent than I would like it. There’s a balancing bitterness in the mouth, with the same caramel, malts, fruits and yeast found in the aroma. Quite bitter in the finish, with the malts and yeast subdued. I think this one would do nice with rakfisk, but on it’s own it’s a rather uninteresting beer. 100514 Skinnyviking (9731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle. Courtesy of Rune. High creamy and lasting off-white head. Hazy orange amber body. Dry fruity roasted malt caramel aroma with hops notes. Nice hops bitterness in combination with a fruity caramel flavor. Low carbonation. Short aftertaste. Unfortunately it feels a bit watery. gunnar (9765) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2010

Hazy amber color, nice aroma of malts and hops - malt background followed up with nice hoppy bitterness - overall a nice drinkable beer Gr0ve (2176) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2010
330 ml bottle. Brown and hazy. Tall fine-laced white head that clings to the glass. Nice and soft nutty chocolatey malt aroma. Bready toffee flavours. Caramel and chocolate. Fairly high carbonation level. Distinct papery and metallic hop flavours. Overall a nice beer with quite a bit of flavours and a nice texture. Should work well with food.

330 ml bottle, bought at Lørenskog Brus-shop. ABV is 4.7%. Golden brown colour, slightly hazy when the yeast is poured in, moderate off-white head. Nice fruity aroma of yeasty esters and American hops (Admiral and Amarillo). Soft mouthfeel. The flavour is fresh and fruity, notes of citrus, hints of caramel malts. I did not have the beer with "rakfisk" (= half-fermented trout) like the brewers intended, but can imagine that this beer is well suited to accompany that traditional Norwegian dish. Also highly drinkable on its own. Finn (8256) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2010
Flaske 0,33l mottatt som gave fra Rune. Takker. Gylden på farge. Litt uklart. Pent kremaktig skum som varer en stund. Aromaen er svakt syrlig med innslag av krydder og frukt. Innbydende. Smaken er svakt krydert med overgang til en behagelig fruktig bitterhet. God! omhper (25811) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2010
Bottled at Skihytta, Trysil. Almst clear brownish amber, ich head. Aroma of peach and mango. Dryish and fairly slim with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Pleasant hoppy gooseberry flavour. Finishes with medium bitterness. My favourite amongst the Atna beers.
