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.

olsvammel (3452) - 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.

Dazz3 (1554) - Hällefors, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2012
Bottled. Pours golden with a small white head. Smells almost nothing, malty if you have imagnation. Tastes grassy hoppy and very bitter with a similar finish.

rlgk (11343) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2012
Bottle. Golden beer with a small white head. Weak malt aroma. Hoppy flavor, citrus, bitter with pepper notes. Not much to remember...

BeerSkull (1309) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2012
Sweet and vaguely metallic malt aroma with hints of grassy hops and some citrus and tangy fruits. Thin malt flavor with a dry and harsh hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Not a particularly good beer, but certainly not disgusting. Works probably best ice cold a hot summer day!

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 5, 2012
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...

larsniclas (5699) - Billdal, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2012
Bottled from Systembolaget Golden with a small, soapy head. Metallic aroma with some citric hops; white grapes. To high on carbonation. Medium bitterness. Some notes of citric Centennials, but not enough and with a metallic aftertaste.

Toerstig (47) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2012
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.

Axebr709 (10) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2012
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...

omhper (19799) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2012
Bottled. Clear deep golden, minimal head. Dusty nose where citrus tries to cover boiled vegetables. Dryish with clean hard mouthfeel. Salty ashy finish with some metal. Lifeless and pointless macroswill.
