3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy burnt bronze pour under a thin fut firm off-white head. Malty aroma with a little pepper, toffee, and mild citrus. Flavors mirrored the aroma but in an underwhelming manner. I kept hoping for something noteworthy but it never came. Finish was mildly sweet, mildly bitter, but otherwise unremarkable. There’s really nothing wrong with this beer aside from the fact that there are so many better examples out there.

Bottle @ Oliver Twist, StockholmBlonde to amber, no head. Served ice cold due to problem with fridge. Very fruity aroma when warmed up. Noticably begian in character, though a bit hoppier. Pinapple and peaches in taste. A lot of other fruits are present as well. Liquid fruit sallad with hop dressing.

Dark orange, small white head. Smell = sweet, spicy, citrusy. Tastes white pepper, bitter oranges, caramel. Quite watery and grainy, but flavorful enough to enjoy.

Pours a clear amber color, small white head. Aroma of cherries, pine needles, and bananas. Flavor is sweet, lots of citrusy hops. Kind of a blend between a hefe- and a pale ale.

Medium sized offwhite head, fair retention and a good amount of stringy, coating lace. Clear copper colored brew, lace just hanging on. Dry malty nose, lightly earthy,faint citrus. Body is light. Mild citrus flavors, lightly malty, bready notes and some oxydative notes as well. Finish is dry and quick. Not bad Karma but not good Karma either.

On draft at the Blue Dog. Poured a golden amber with a thin off white head. Tastes of various fruits, picked up some apricot at the end. This was served a little too cold to pick up the aroma and all the flavor. Didn’t have time to let it warm up more.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper orange, decent head fades away. Aroma is vaguely fruity, with some pepper and faint spiciness. Strangely present, yet almost non-descript at the same time. Flavor has some faint cherry, a bit of orange, and a sweetness that is hard to pinpoint. I’m having a really hard time getting my taste-buds and head around this beer. Odd finish as well, as it starts off light in the mouth and finishes full on the palate. Flavors driven by yeast, resulting in a sort of strange, almost unsettling experience.

Pour is nice amber with a big than head that left a nice lacing...smell is a little funky and a little fruity...maybe grapes...taste is rather bland with just lots of malt and grass...I can see it as a session though...

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Dark amber, brief head. Aroma of caramel. mango and almonds. Sweetish with clean, hard mouthfeel and somewhat thin body. Strong cardboard flavour, like in an overly aged, severely oxidized beer - then nothing. After the aroma this beer offers nothing but a downhill slope towards a metallic finish.
