COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Think about it. If nothing wasn’t here to keep things apart, everything would be one big, stressfull, balled up, messy thing. Probably boring too. Which is why pausing to enjoy nothing is a very good thing. With Hale to Nothing, of course. There’s nothing artificial or phoney in it. Only good stuff. Like organic malted barley and hops that give this ale its own, individual refreshing taste. We think that’s something special. So relax. Enjoy. Nothing in particular We use echological Pilsener- and Munchenermalt. For hops, we use echological Perle plus Centennial and Fuggles. It has a flavoury taste with a slightly hint of citrus. Hale is somewhat malty and well balanced.

VsXsV (2260) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2012
Bottle. Clear, golden liquid with medium egg-white head. Aroma of corn, stale earthy hops, metal, bread and some cereal. Some sulfur. Maybe some grassy hops. Smells like a cheap eurolager. Where is the Centennial hops? Not good. Taste is dry with a metallic, medium bitterness with toasty, biscuity notes and a little corn. Light bodied with too high carbonation and watery mouthfeel. Another dissapointment from Spendrups/Brutal Brewing. Why won’t they brew the beers they had at SBWF?

_angst_ (2767) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2012
330 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours clear golden with a small frothy and fizzy white head without leaving much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, malty and slightly stale with yeasty bread, orange zest, grass and hints of caramel, metal and plums. Taste is sweet and bitter with caramel, yeast, orange peal, bread, unripe mango and lots of wet grass. Mouthfeel is sharp, watery, slightly unbalanced and thin bodied. Finish is sweet, tiny bitter and stale with old bread, silage and hints of citrus and grass. Neither tastes nor smells good. Not very ecological to waste foodstuffs making this.

hackobock (1349) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden with a large white head, Aroma is grassy hops and bread. Taste is bitter with some malty notes to it, the bitterness dies away quickly, some minor notes of hops is present just before the taste dies out. Thin with low carbonation. Might as well carbonate hop tea.

Cunningham (4490) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 11, 2012
Golden colour with a white head. Hoppy nose. Hoppy and grassy flavour. But also a bit thin, close to call it waterish.
[Bottle from Systembolaget in Strömstad, Sweden]

Aniela (2313) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2012
From a 33 cl bottle at home in Skövde. Golden clear beer wit an offwhite head. A bit hoppy thin aroma. A bit spicy flavour. Not a nice beer at all.

Lite gräsig doft. Smaken är väl ok med tydlelig gräs och en viss beska. Helt ok matöl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olsvammel (3063) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2012
Bottle from systembolaget. Artificially sweet smell, like candy. Very bitter taste, aggresive and harsh bitterness that isn’t enjoyable at all. It lacks malts and hops to backup the intense bitterness and the result is an extremely unbalanced beer that is very hard to drink. I got about half of my bottle down before giving up.
