Nøgne Ø “1000” (10,00%) 4/6

1000Aroma is pointing in the direction of yeast/pastry and spices from the east. The beer is invitingly dark yellow of colour and produces a nice hat when poured in the glass. Little carbonization, and the spices demanding their space as the mouthful strikes, with a shy hint of bitterness. The yeast is however contributing in a rich way to the taste, without being disturbing- rather in a delicate way. After a while the fruitiness also shows it’s presence, although not in the classsical way that you’d exspect from a pale or blond ale, quite unlike most other bright-colour beers. All the while with the spices remaining there.
