On draught at Hopworks. Hoppy aroma and deep amber in color. Taste is. Roasted and toasted malts and oats. Finishes with a light bread like sweetness. A favorite everyday HUB beer.
Faint aromas of hops, spice, and malt. Flavors follow suit. Phenomenal mouthfeel, so smooth with just the right amount of carbonation. Palme (4816) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2016
On tap @ Henrik. This is a near clear looking one deep and amber bronze in color while on top, a hefty lacing beige head. It smells like soft red berries, mild English pub and a hint of some sweet malts. Not utterly exciting perhaps, but still quite nice. Tastes nice - and balanced. It has a good oily texture in the mouth and it’s almost creamy on the carbonation. Like the taste. It has a nice sweetness, really mellow and balanced, but not your typical ESB at all. Stronger and more mighty, quite nutty. There’s even a trace of something licoricy. It’s surprisingly tasty this. 23.03.2016 gunnfryd (15175) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2016

Tap @ Patricks. Unclear amber body with a small off-white head. A bit light in aroma, malt, caramel and hint of berries. Flavor is medium sweet malty, caramel, decent bitterness and hint of some kind of berry like sourness. Medium body and moderate aftertaste. Nothing really outstanding, but rather pleasant and well made. Florya (2027) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 1, 2016

Draught @ Gastropuben KICK Malt & Mat, Kristiansandyngwie (17168) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2016
Pours clear amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, bread, biscuit and grass. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter long bread, biscut, caramel and grassy finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
On tap at Kick. A hazy amber colored beer with a small, dense, beige head. The aroma is on the malty side, with a pleasant piney, grassy touch. Dark bread, caramel and a touch of dried fruits. It’s full bodied and quite dry on the palate, with a soft carbonation. Caramel, bread and some coffee in the flavor, backed by a nice bitterness, some grass and pine cones. Lasting bitter finish. Pleasant and easy drinkable, although not very exciting. 160305 Holmen1 (6303) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2016
Fra fat på Bøker & børst (planke på krankupp med Ovesen 01.02.16): klar rødlig mahogny med ok skum. De har spart på aromahumlen, men jeg aner noe blomsteraktig og karamell. Veldig god og typeriktig smak med blomster/urter, karamell og en kjeks eller to. Flott balansert bitterhet med lang og fruktig ettersmak. En meget bra start på kvelden.
