Draught. Mid-amber with a complex caramel-based aroma and some sweet treacle notes in the mouth. Some autumn fruits evident and surprisingly bitter although the hops don’t actually give much else. Decent enough.

Flaske 500ml fra Kjeller 5. Nyttårsaftenkos i heimen. Mørk amber. Middels høyt luftig skum som daler passe raskt. Aromaen en god blanding av malt & søt frukt. Smaken plommer. Litt tynn. Lett metallisk bismak. Avslutter tørt. Tørket frukt. Uklar siste kvelling. Mye bunnfall igjen på flaska.

500ml bottle bought at Kjeller 5. Clear amber body, covering off-white head blanketing the glass. Mild cocoa nose. Caramel malty taste mingled with leafy hops. Decent bittersweet finish. Easy to drink and satisfying partner to my pizza (Tromsø 12.11.2016).

Aroma of fruits, caramel, malt and toast. Dark amber with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light to medium body with a average to soft carbonation.
Overall a perfectly OK bitter, but a bit thin and boring.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Christmas Day 2012 ( ten past midnight and I’ve just finished preparing for later): I need a beer.
500ml bottle conditioned: poured slowly into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged pint vase.
Nice looking brew: an off-white foaming head sat on top of reddy/brown coloured beer, sadly some of the sediment got out of the bottle so it had a slight hazy hue within the body.
Malts rule the roost: caramel nose and taste but not overly sweet. Pleasant blend of ingrediants with a bitter hop backbone running through the maltiness of the main flavours. An OK beer rather than a great brew: would happily try a cask version given the chance though.
