3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown rubby high lights with a gig tan head.
A malty and hoppy aroma is present but nothing of any standout.
A very slight roasted, toffee flavor from the malts and hops present but lack any real flavor other then to adding bitterness for the malts.
Feels a bit thin and watery.
Overall, I think this beer does not achieve it’s stated goal as being a richer and hopper then the English version.
It is a ggod beer it just tastes alittle weak.
Drink well my friends

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beer Gonzo. Chestnut brown, with a head that fades very quickly. On the chunky, chewy side of medium bodied, more oily than creamy. Caramel and malt aroma, with a nice balance of sweetness and bitterness in the taste. There is something in here which, bizarrely, reminds me of the smells of a rich gravy cooking on the hob, with red wine and port in the mixture. Strange, but that’s what I got. Enjoyed this beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Arlanda Airport. If I didn’t drink something after spending the whole day in Scandinavian airports I would go crazy! Poured a clear dark reddish brown with a round off white head. The aroma is roasted malts, red berry fruit, light molasses. The flavour is medium bitter with a light watery metallic hop bitter, dry mineral palate and a short bitter finish. Light bodied with soft carbonation. I’m surprised that this beer has such high ratings tbh. It’s way too light and has no body and leaves a rather unsatisfying aftertaste. I would not buy this again.
