3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle sampled in 2009. Reddish brown body with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma has malt, dry fruit and some caramel. Flavor is sweet malty, caramel, decent bitter and some spices. Fine and balanced body, medium aftertaste. Nice and balanced, refreshing. Still not the most exiting style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It pours an almost clear orange-golden body, topped by a dense, small, beige head. Malty and sweetish on the nose, with some spicy notes. Caramel and malts in the mouth, quite smooth and full-bodied with a pleasant level of co2. Some spices and fine hops too. Sweet and delicately bitter finish. A nice one, quite hard to pin. Still, it makes me miss the good old Ølfabrikken and the experimental spirit. (090116)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little sour, which I think was probably an unintentional infection. I love Saaz hops but I didn’t pick up on them in this beer. Brown color, and a moderately malty flavor with some sugar, and a little sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up a 500 ml swing top bottle via trade with Papsoe. Pours a cloudy reddish brown brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates clean. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, a touch of toffee, dark pitted fruits, and a touch of yeast. Taste is medium bodied, semi-sweet flavor of caramel, toffee, some tart fruit and a hint of brown sugar. Finish is semi-dry a slight tart aftertaste with a hint of powdered caramel malt character. Beer may be a little past its prime but still drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear red/amber look with a thich light brown head. Very aromatic, lots of sweet caramel and flowery hops along with some lemon and alchohol. Fresh and delicious flavor with a pretty complex malty caramel/toffee sweetnes mixed with a good amount of bitterness. Great beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark chestnut color. I was really unimpressed by this--to me the flavor was a sort of ’mush’. That isn’t very flattering, but a brewery can’t make every one a gem. There’s a sourness here that layers over a fairly nondescript caramel quality. Nothing much of anything worth remembering. Thanks to Skyview for the chance to try it anyway.
