2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from systembolaget, at home. Helsingborg, April 2012.
Hoppy but slightly metallic aromas, some malt, quite dull and simple but still not bad. Taste with some hops, pretty malt forwarded. Rough carbonation. Slightly bitter. Works as a thirst quencher but that’s it...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On bottle. Clear golden almost amber color with white nice looking head. A quite thin aroma with some citrus almost lemon like. Taste pretty thin in body with some citrus notes and some what lingering bitterness. A plus for being organic otherwise quite boring ale.

Clear pale with little to none head. Light aroma of grassy hops and water. Taste of cardboard, and slight sweetness. Dry mouthfeel with zero carbonation. This was actually much worse than I expected...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml Bottle - Amber with a small head. Dried apricot, hops, toffee and malt in the aroma. Bitter and moderately hoppy taste with notes of tea, metal, dried fruit and caramel. I never used to expect much from ’Brutal Brewing’, but my expectations have risen a bit recently. This, however, is something of a disappointment.
