gnoff (8777) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2011
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget.
BB 03/12, LOT 0026, sampled on April 16, 2011.
Clear copper color, nice off-white head, though it dissipates very fast. Sweet and acidic to sour scent, maybe from the hops? Also fruity and mandarin smell. Malty, bitter taste that finishes fairly fast and short with a dry bitter and salty mineral touch. Taste also has some fruity hops and somewhat harsh bitterness. Lingering dry bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, high dry bitterness.
Pretty good stuff, though nothing I’ll get too often. One of those beers you could sit down with for drinking rather than sipping.
