3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to Reakt.
A very attractive russet brown colour with a thin beige head. Really good charred nose with hints of nuts and something distinctly English and traditional. Underlying dried fruits too. Reasonably complex and certainly pleasant. The flavour is not quite as good but it’s still more than drinkable. It’s just a little on the thin side and the complexity of the aroma has become a little more one dimensional. Good prickly bitterness in the finish along with a delicate but lengthy smoky aftertaste. Good stuff

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance of a clear, watery cola. Uneven but large head with a creamy texture. Aroma is charcoal, marinated steak, and licorice, though it’s ultimately a bit too subtle. Taste is similar, with some caramel onions and charred meat. Thin texture.

Tap. Italian Job, Chiswick, London. Hazy brown. Bubbly, lasting, beige head. Nose has savoury smoke. Very meaty. Some wood smoke. Bit of a dry roasted peanut thing. Taste is light, smokey sweet.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bärnstensfärgad, disig med rätt litet, snabbt falnande skum. Maltig, lite fruktig doft med tydliga röktoner, mest år charkuterihållet. Lätt rökig smak, charkuterier, plus en lite sötaktig fruktighet och en lättsam efterbeska. En trevlig rököl av den milda sorten, men kanske lite tunn. 2014-05-24

Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours dirty brown with a huge creamy off-white head. Aroma is malty with a weak cured meat addition, light smoke as well, like a bonfire from yesterday. Taste is moderate sweet caramel, overpowering the light smoked note, which almost disappears in this one. Creamy mouthfeel, low carbonated.

Lovely sausagey aroma. Light palate, refreshing. Great smokiness, like a countryside smoke sauna, with a barbie. Finish is nice fatty sausages. Like it!
