visionthing (5298) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 24, 2014
50cl bottle from Meny Bjølsen, Oslo. Pours hazy dark amber with a tan head.
Medium malty aroma with some roasty notes, quite strong hop presence with fruity, citrusy and lightly piney notes. Caramel, herbs and just a hint of smoke. Moderate to medium sweet with a fairly dry and bitter finish with note of citrus. Nice, flavourfull and sessionable. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2014
A tall lacing tanned top, on a deep reddish-amber body. Pleasant aroma of red berries and biscuity malts. Light to medium full. Clean and fresh sourish-bready malt flavor. A good dose of herbal and earthy bittering hops here. Mouth-drying herbal-bitter finish. Very likeable this one, with its fresh malty sourness.

Bottle. A clear, dark amber colored beer with a small, off-white head that lasts. The aroma has a pleasant roasted touch, with caramel, or maybe rather toffee, and a balancing citrusy, flowery touch. The flavor is balanced and smooth, not intense in any way, with lightly roasted maltyness, borderline coffee, and resiny hintes and some lemon peel. Medium to full body, dry and softly carbonated. Roasted finish. A tasteful beer that I bet would be nice with some BBQ. 120326
