2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is slightly hoppy, gentle but nice. Pours with medium to a lot of head. More carbonation than usual. Quite pale with an interesting aftertaste that evolves in to a slightly honey-like sensation. Not quite well balanced but still ok.

A beer that ticks all the right "Bitter" boxes and is of a strength that allows one to partake as one would like. What’s not to like?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint bottle. Dark amber with a little foam that does not last long. A malty aroma that also has fruit. Not big. The flavor begins spicy and there is some unpleasant sourness underneath. Floral and a bit of toffee. Bitterness is moderate. This is just ok.

50cl can from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Mild malty and caramelly aroma with fruity notes, noticable, but mildly hoppy and hits of dried fruits, herbs and spices. A bit sweet with malty and mildly hoppy flavours and a decently bitter finish. Not quite my thing, but fair enough.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tapered 500cc bottle, decent label. Woody brown, cloudy, not much head. Toffy aroma with a bit of hoppiness and peat - a little earthy. Pleasantly bittter up front, a little woody, gets sweeter as it warms. Some, but not much, fruitiness. Bitter backend, light alcohol tones. Medium body, quaffable. Not a huge pint, but a good one. Beer Stop, Tallahassee.
