Canned (Thanks omhper!). Deep copper colour, mediumsized foamy beige head. Aroma is fruity, grainy, some starchlike notes as well as mild wood. Flavour is bready, mild toaste dnotes with some mild nutty notes. Also a bit metallic to it. In fact rather harsh flavour after the first few sips.

Canned. Clear mahogany colour, rich head. Rich aroma of tropical fruits. Sweetish with clean mouthfeel and light body. Toasty and ashy with sal, black currant and pineapple. Mid bitter finish with notes of plastic. A tolerable dark lager with enough fancy surface in form of hops to take the focus away from the shortaages underneath.

gnoff (7471) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2013
50 cl can thanks to Nisse666! Sampled on January 18, 2013. BB 05.03.13.
Clear brown color, medium sized frothy tan head that leaves plenty of lacing in my glass. Sweet, some red berries, malt, metallic, hints of chocolate, some peach scent. Sweet, raisin, a bit weak, malty taste. Raisin and bitter aftertaste. Lignering bitterness. Sort of weak low co2 mouthfeel, medium bitterness that is grainy and like I wrote, lingers.
Not bad.

Malty, fruity taste with dark bread, dried fruit, orange peel, caramel, toasty malt, a touch of chocolate and piney hops in a finish with a decent bitterness.
