Flaske fra helsekosten på Kvaddå, delt med Ovesen etter tapping av vår nyeste esb: uklar kastanjebrun med fint offwhite skum som varer. For en gangs skyld en røykøl som er tiltalende moderat i uttrykket - denne liker jeg faktisk både i aroma og smak. Balansert, med fin munnfølelse og avstemt bitterhet i avslutningen.

Hazy brown with an off white head - Smoked malt aroma - Smoked malt body - Smoked malt goes into the finish - This was nice yngwie (17356) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 7, 2016
Bottle, at Patrick’s. It produces a lot of light beige foam over a lightly hazy light brown body. Lacing. The aroma is a bit weak I think, with dark caramel, some roasted malts, a hint of ham and bonfire and some citrus hints. The flavor is likewise, weak, with a fine bitterness. Full to medium body and a bit heavy carbonation, semi dry. Long finish with more bitterness than smoke. Drinkable and flawless, but too heavy on the carbonation and lacking on smoke. In my opinion. 160407 KnutAlbert (6815) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2016
