3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Schouskjelleren. Smells nice, ryeish, not too sweet. A little bready in a way, blended with soft chocolate biscuits, fruity hops, something that reminds me of nuts and sweet malts. Nice aroma. The beer itself is dark copper, cloudy and with a dense lacing off-white head on the top. Tastes really good also. This is a typical Rye-ale, just without all that cloying sweetness that often cones in these. It has a nice thick oily texture and a prickling about average creamy carbonation level. Rye bread, toffee, some ripe fruits and a little bit of hoppy citrus. Really likable this, and I’m looking forward to the master genius Tore Ryen gets his own Schouskjelleren beer.. 31.05.2015

Small offwhite head. Clear brown body with light carbonation. Fruity gooseberry aroma with metal notes. Dry-sweet resiny fruity taste with catty chalky notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mealy mouthfeel. Dry resiny catty fruity aftertaste with spicy wooden citric notes. Nice, drinkable, but where is the rye? (0.2l draft at brewpub.)
