tfredvik (2074) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Hazy, medium amber body with a rather large, long-lived, off-white head that laces the glass well. The aroma is strong and sweet, and initially I find it very pleasant, with tropical fruits, red berries, light grassy and a supporting caramel background. However, there are also some disturbing notes of butter that keep increasing as I drink. The same goes for the flavour, the difference being that the butter starts out quite obvious and ends up as an overwhelming, cloyingly sweet diacetyl carpet that almost manages to ruin all the hoppy niceness. The taste is also too sweet, and the moderate to light bitter finish can’t cope with that. Medium body, dry texture, moderate carbonation. I’m sure this is could have been a decent beer because the hop profile isn’t too bad, but my bottle is ruined by butter.Vighals (4543) - SÃ¸rumsand, NORWAY - APR 16, 2014
