Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2011
(Cask at Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, London, 19 May 2011) Amber colour with foamy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with grapefruit, orange peel and generous doses of fresh hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of grapefruit, pine needles, orange peel and lots of fresh hops in the finish. Medium body, with balanced sweetness, fairly bitter. Nice one.

Copper color, gloriously creamy looking white head. Really excellent appearance. The nose is mostly juicy hops, grapefruit etc. The taste light sweet. Pleasant bready malts present. The mouthfeel’s light-medium. Overall nice work.

Cask at Caley Sample Rooms. Very bitter with the priminent US hop flavour. I’m not sure that this style of beer works on cask - I’d prefer this colder and with some more carbo.

[10/2/13] Cask at Euston Tap in London. Slightly hazy golden. Hoppy aroma with overripe tropical fruits. Flavor of fruity hops, some citrus and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Good and easy-drinking.
