3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a fairly clear amber with a large dense white head. Aromas of malt and maple with a touch of sweetness. Just about medium-bodied, a little bit sweet and malty with a tangy touch of maple. Soft spices with a bit of yeast into a fairly dry finish. Tastes a bit like pancakes.

Hyfsat fyllig, med en röd och höstig färg. Bra efterbeska. Funkar bra till en lite säkrare och kryddigare mat.

(Bottle). Pleasant scent with sweet aromas of syrup and raisins mixed with fresh and tangy flavorings from hops. The taste is similar to the aroma, a mix of sweet and bitter flavors, including brown sugar, syrup, raisins, pine and citrus. Dry bitterness in the finish. A nice beer!

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (25:-). Fruktig och humlig doft, karamellmalt. Ganska söt, fruktig och humlig smak. Lång besk avslutning.

Pours clear amber with two fingers of frothy off-white head. Aroma of English malts, light caramel, maybe hints of syrup. Taste is light initial bitter followed by an overly sweet finish. Body is light and oily with fairly rich carbonation.

Faller mig inte i smaken, fin arom och vacker färg. Men smaken platt och utan aptitretande eftersmak.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle/SB. Red amber clear. Autumny leafy hops, earthy herbals and a good load of caramels. Clean, slight yeasty damp hoppyness. Caramels, and bready malts. Easy though, smooth. Bitter, with a sugary feel. Ok, flavourful, but really moldy-leaves- autumny. I guess that’s what they went for, but doesn’t please my buds too well.

Bottle from cellar served at 56F. Pours a rich copper-gold color with a thick off-white head. Head dissipates fairly quickly, but there’s very significant lacing. Aroma is full of hops on the initial smell, there’s caramel, bread, toffee underneath. Taking a drink initially puts a big burst of hop notes throughout your nose and mouth, resiny, piny and a bit of citrus (dried orange peel). There’s also a sweetness in the malt, caramel. I was expecting a bit more malt and I don’t really get any of the maple syrup that is supposed to be in there, but it’s a nice beer.
