Beer Here Nordic Rye

type: "Scandanavian Farmhouse Ale" whatever that means.
origin: Grimstad, Norway (at Nøgne ø)
price: $10/.5l
abv: 8%

Yeah this is pricey, but it was my birthday and I was showing some respect for the people of Norway after the recent tragedy. Plus once you get a Norske-beer boner (e.g. the IPA), it never really goes away...

So this tastes like a cross between a porter and a brown ale, and I'm not so sure I get rye flavors. This bothers me about "rye" ales - where the F is the RYE??!

But after a few glugs, while watching Louie, I realized the best way to drink this is with little sips in the front of your mouth. It really is fantastic that way - which seems odd to me. I don't think I'll get it again, but worth a try I suppose.
