NORSAND (101) - Lillestrm, NORWAY - APR 3, 2017
(Bought 12-18 months ago) Brown colour. Medium to long lasting off-white head. Nose: Sweet maltiness, yeast, some chocolate and hints of moderately roasted coffee. Taste: The arrival comes with a quite rich mouthfeel thanks to the rich carbonation. Then the body slims down noticeably on the mid palate, which is soft with some maltiness, medium brown coffee and a little bitterness (hops, I believe). There is some sweetness coming and going here but I would say the overall taste experience is rather dry. Post initial carbonation, this beer is medium bodied. The exit and aftertaste has malt, moderate bitterness and a small touch of darker chocolate. Not bad but also not terribly exiting, to be honest.

Decent. Some maltyness and hoppier than most Brown Ales. But somewhat unbalanced.

Bottle 0,33L. Dark, ruby brown color with huge, frothy, long lasting, light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, nuts, caramel. Taste starts light bitter and caramely, but it turns fast to medium bitter with tartnes of fresh nuts and some burnt caramel in the aftertaste. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation.
