3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Ruby red, not much head. Grassy, hoppy nose with ryeish and fruity notes. Also some weak barnyardish notes can be found. Strong grassy malty and hoppy flavour with some spicy hints. Quite watery palate after all the different stronger ABV stuff. Good for a 4,5% though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (BB 04/2006)
Clear ruby red color, small off-white head. Rye-malty aroma with some barnyardish notes. Malty, a bit hoppy too. Good palate for a 4.5% brew. Balanced, solid but a bit boring beer.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the bottle, pours a clear amber with visible rising carbonation bubbles leading to a foamy off-white head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aromas of sweet malts. Tastes malty, with some bitters. Tasty, but finishes of bitter grassy hops. Not a pleasant aftertaste.

Thanks to weeare138. Pours a rusty orange amber with a small off white head. Aroma of sweet malts, picking up some lighter hops. Flavors of the same. Nothing too breakthrough but a middle of the road Amber Ale.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Rich white head. Fruity lager aroma, almost like a Czech. Rich in CO2. I think I could taste a bit of rice in this brew, both in aroma and taste. Slightly thin body and a bit oxidized perhaps.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared with GregClow, tupalev & jerc -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear dark amber with an average size diminishing off-white head. Very mild, fairly well balanced aroma of sweet malt and hops. Ridiculously mild flavour follows the aroma and adds a bit of spice and fruit but just isn’t that good. Medium bodied. Just plain average.
