Dense caramel like color ale. Lots of yeast particles suspended in the brew. Almost looks like honey in density. Finger of head on the pour with weak retention and minimal lacing.

Smells like rye bread, biscuits and honey with a pine like hop edge.

Big malt character of buttered biscuits. Dense caramel. Assertive herbal hop but overpowered by the malt. Harsh, bitter, soapy finish.

Full bodied, near syrupy. Descent carbonation.

Just ok. Lacks balance and a little more malty than I prefer my IPAs.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

A: Deep Copper opaque brown. Off white head that stick around at a finger or so. Lacing throughout.

S: Before getting close, I can smell caramel. Let's get in closer. Caramel malts overpower a spicier hop profile. Brown sugar. Dark fruits.

T: Whoa! Holy sweet malt, batman! Some lemon and orange bittnerness, hit with a fantastically fruity malt. Some alcohol is present, but all in all, very smooth.

M: To me, the sugar/malt mouthfeel isn't supposed to be here. Tastes a lot like my first homebrew attempt at a hop bomb... overly sugary and thick.

O: Not fully impressed, however... it works for he style. I had never had a Norwegian beer, I think, so this is nice to add to the list of countries... but not something I would want regularly.
