3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small white head. Hazy yellow body. Resiny tropical fruit aroma with catty mealy lemony notes. Dry-sweet, and faintly acidic, earthy lemony tropical fruit taste with resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy earthy tropical fruit aftetaste with spicy citric lingering finish. It’s OK, but a bit earthy and slack. (0.2l draft at Bishops Arms, Järntorget, Göteborg.)

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
As glädje at stearin. Aroma of hops and yeast. Not a massive hop nose, but they are definitely there. Opaque appearance, not much head, short retention. Nice pale ale. Malt and hops with a slight yeast twang. Not outstanding but I?d definitely buy another...
