4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16-OCT-2011, bottle @home, bought today @ "Fish & Beer".
Pours slightly hazy orange with lasting low beige head.
Malty fruity nose with a bitter ending.
Taste is really bitter with grape fruit and pine. But also a candy like character. Ends dessert wine like and extremely bitter. Really compex taste with a nutty cheasy element, and then the overwhelming bitterness. What a treat from the locals:-)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at SBWF 2011. It poured a pale golden liquid with a small white head. Smell of sweet pale malts and an intense hoppy aroma. Similar taste with a wide hoppy aroma, maybe to many since it lost some of it’s complexity. Lean and light body. Very easy to drink. Should probably be appreciated better in larger quantities.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Very rich and balanced. Aromas of caramel, biscuit, nuts, and grass. Taste starts sweet, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is silky, and full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Last beer of the year :). 500 ml bottle @ Bishops Arms: Örebro on December 30. Pours hazy golden with a small white head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace. Smell is slightly sweet and very hoppy with pine, peaches, apricot, grapefruit and orange zest. Taste is sweet and very bitter with tons of pine, orange zest, lemon zest, grass, resin and unripe peaches. Finish is slightly sweet and very bitter. Extreme and a bit unbalanced but still very nice.
