3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle. Oh, it’s quite a dunkel one this. Deep deep amber, almost ruby like. Cloudy and it has a small island and sidesticking beige head also. On the nose it has a burned sugar / burned caramel touch. A little roasted, a little chocolate dry with hints of only coffee and yeast. Some silo grass also here. Doesn’t smell horrible, just a bit undefined. Is this like a mild perhaps? Tastes like a mild also. Some mild hotplate wrapper tones, a faint acidity from cold coffee in the back. It’s not super dry, but more dry than sweet. Feels light oily in the mouth and it’s below average on the bubbles. Yeah, ends with dry cocoa and some faint honey hints. This is definitely one of the better I’ve had from the guys from Steinkjer. 21.06.2014

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a slightly hazy brown body with a small, short-lived off-white head and loads of visible bubbles. Aroma is grains, straw, caramel, nuts and hints of biscuits and bread. Taste is bread, nougat, mild caramel, straw and hints of nuts and dry herbs. Light body, medium to soft carbonation. A classic Norwegian farmhouse brew; not very exciting but fair enough and a good example of this kind of traditional homebrew type of beer.
