3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle BB 10/2006) Fruity, hoppy, slightly roasted and slightly caramel aroma. Red brown colour, bright but some very small particles, slightly sparkling and average size, white, more or less fully diminishing head with fair lacing. Caramel, roasted malty, slightly bitter and fruity (citrus) flavour. Softly carbonated and medium-bodied palate. Good, well balanced beer! 21/08/06

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear light copper in colour with a small bubbly off-white head. Spicy hop nose with plenty of caramel. The body is quite dry and bitter, with some metallic bitterness also coming through in the finish. Its not an overly interesting beer, but has good balance and a full body. Expected more considereing the premium that Nils put on their beers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear, deep amber colour with a creamy offwhite head. Caramel aroma with toffee notes. Some grassy hoppiness in the nose as well. Good malty flavours, definite smoked and cellar character, ending dry. Medium to full-bodied. Quite a pleasant surprise this one, though more of a Bambergisch Rauchbier meeting a Biere de Garde than just a Festbier

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. One month past ’best before’. Pours clear amber/brown with a dense beige head. Great sweetish hoppy aroma with notes of malt. Fruity notes appear as it warms. Flavour is hoppy with a decent, well-balanced bitterness, smoked notes that aren’t insistant and a malty sweetness. Finish is bitter and dry with apple notes. Could do with a little less carbonation. 24-08-06.
