Bottled, thanks KnutAlbert. Clear nut brown, rich head. Aroma of wet cardboard, white pepper and caramel. Sweetish with light-medium body and sticky mouthfeel. Wet cardboard dominates. Hops come across like heavily oxidized finely ground white pepper from years ago. Buttery fudge lead the way to a finish with slight metal. A rather unrefined commercial darkish lager.

Sødmerik lukt med preg av karamellmalt, humle, nøtter, litt krydder og tørka frukt. Sødmerik smak med preg av karamellmalt, litt krydder, nøtter, smørkaramell. Middels bitterhet og lengde. Kjedelig.
500 ml bottle sampled in 2010. A clear amber body with a nice, dense off-white head. Aroma is mainly caramel malt. Flavor is sweet caramel, toast and a light hint of fruit. Low bitterness. Medium body with more caramel in aftertaste. Deadly boring. visionthing (5363) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 12, 2012
33cl bottle from Meny Løren. Pours clear deep amber with a tan head. Malty aroma with caramel , some dried fruits, hints of spices and some roasty notes. Better than I remembered it, quite mild and not so much flavour, but far better than the worst in this category. Not an exciting beer, but easy to drink and fairly well balanced. Slightly dry and somewhat bitter finish. Arve_Christian (5143) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2012

Pigs Ear. Can courtesy of Knut. Cheers mate! Clear brown beer. Light malty beer. Very light! Mild milk chocolate, soft and yielding. A bit one dimensional, soft malt and not much else.

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Can from Jacobs på Holtet in Oslo. Amber colour with an off white head. Moderate caramel nose. Lots of caramel flavour with some fruity notes. Absolutely one of the best norwegian grocery store beers 2011. tfredvik (1941) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2012
Medium brown body with a small, white, fully diminishing head. The aroma is very malty with caramel and has lots of sweet dark fruity notes. The taste is medium sweet and slightly bitter. Ok mouthfeel, it doesn’t feel too thin. One of the better Norwegian Butikkstyrkejuleøl™ in 2011.
