3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 4-11-2009 at Fort Wayne Gathering. Corked and caged bottle, Brewed 25/3/2008 and Bottled 7/4/2008. Label shows 6.4%ABV. When poured, it was a gusher. It has a white fizzy head that mostly diminished, and the body is somewhat murky. The Aroma is sweet, yeasty, malty, and grassy hops. The Taste is the same as the Aroma plus some spice notes. The Palate is lively and this beer is light-medium bodied. In the end, I did not care for the taste all that well as it seemed to be somewhat disjointed as the flavors just did not jive like they should have. This is not a beer that I would recommend.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75 cl. Comes af brew number 279, ABV 6,7. The wife of the brewer, who sold me this, told me that this is Bøgedals take on the original recipe of the now defunct Brøckhouse celebrated IPA. It pours a very cloudy, beautiful orange with quite a huge, foamy white head. Fruity nose with a spicy, slightly citric edge, notes of grapefruit, orangepeel, apples and caramel. Taste is sweet citruszest, medium to heavy bitter. Dry, medium long, slightly astringent finish. Wellbalanced with a minimal but recognisable subnote of barnyard. Easily the best, Bøgedal I’ve had.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.75l corked bottle that has been cellared for about one year. DAMN! The cork really REALLY popped! Think I might have given the next door dog a heart attack. I sure as hell got spooked into a different dimension.. This beer start off as a light blurry glowing-amber beer, but as you get closer to the bottom it turned really hazy and in the finish it’s really really packed with tons of sediments and it’s actually on the border of being murky. It has a big fantastic looking fluffy off-white head. The aroma is lovely fruity with notes of apples, peach, pear, caramel and some suitable alcohol hints. The carbonation is average with these typical small-prickling bubbles and the mouthfeel is light sticky to oily. The flavors are rich, warming, fruity, caramel, extremely balanced with woody hints and a perfect little alcohol twitch towards finish. Really really good! 10.01.2012

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22.10.2011. 0,75l Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Labeled "Bøgedal Lys # 1, bryg no. 224". Cloudy beer with golden orange color. Head is very creamy and there is a lot of carbonation at first. At first this beer is very thick with light oily mouthfeel but it gets more fresh with good flavours of hops and flower after a while. Flavours of grassy hops with notes of pinetrees. Strong body with alcohol that gives strength. Very good beer.

Bottle. A slightly weird orange / brown colour with heaps of sediment floating around. Large off white head. Nose shows heaps of biscuity malt, spice, honey and some us style hops. Flavours are a little odd. Some malty sweetness and a little resiny hops on the finish. Medium mouthfeel.
