Tap@ De Klep. Gouden kleur, vaste dichte kraag die als een laagje op het bier blijft liggen. Weinig aroma, smaakt lichtfruitig, bitterzoet met een hint van iets wat me aan wcblokjes doet denken. Goed te drinken, niks speciaals.

Svesse (6216) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2014
(Bottle, De Paas, Den Haag, 21 Aug 2014) Pale golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with notes of bread, tropical fruit and honey. Malty, fruity taste with tropical fruit, honey, grass, sweet malt and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, quite sweet. A bit one-dimensional, mainly with sweet malt and alcohol, but quite enjoyable.

Beautiful clear gold when poured, but absolutely no aroma. Sparkling on the tongue is what gives this taste.
