COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once, every farm in Norway was required by law to brew its own ale. All of that ale had a natural smoky taste because the malt was kilned by fire, and most of it was spiced with juniper berries. Norwegian Wood, a recreation of that traditional style, is made by the "Hand Brewery" - four guys brewing in their spare time, on an absurdly small scale.

Buona ale color ambra e riflessi marrone, schiuma marroncina fine. Al naso si nota subito un leggero affumicato e speziatura. Bevuta dolce con ginepro che si avverte bene. Bassa carbonazione

MRMedellin (319) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - AUG 27, 2017
Cloudy red- brown beer, standar carbonation, small white head. At nose mainly yeasty aromas like barnyard, caramel and some smoked ones are felt as well. When tasted it has a medium body with a really good balance and at the end a nice bitterness mixed with the smoked flavor. Really enjoyable with greasy food.
