3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Den här är väl ganska typisk swe småbrygg. Lättsam och trevlig på många sätt, men ändå en bit kvar till toppen. Saknar lite fruktighet.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap (0lhus Stockholm)
Pale gold, small head. Cheap floral honey aroma, but ain’t so bad. Pleasant grainy body, husks, some earthiness. Initially a bit harsh and acrid, but as I drink it I warm to it ever so slightly. Finish very dry, biting and peppery. Next to the Mikkeller shit, this is more like pilsner than that one. Still a sub-par brew. Totally wiped the Suomenlinna smile off my face.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Ølhus Stockholm. Weird aroma with some fruity maltiness and grapefruit. Flavour has glue, heavy malty tones, some fruits and baking stuff. Too heavy and not very refreshing. Some metallic tones after few sips.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle. Super crystal clear this one! Not even a micro particle visible here and it’s kinda dark almost woody golden in the glass with a medium sized light lacing off-white head. Quite piney/birch infused on the nose this APA. Some bitter citrus zest with a good strong malty caramel sweetness and even a bit of alcohol. It smells much more like a powerful IPA than a APA. Well, it’s definitely no IPA on the taste. Light oily, gentle in the mouth with a just below average carbonation level. It’s quite sweet in the taste. Lots of caramel sweetness here, but a gentle mild hoppy bitterness balances the sweetness in a nice way. Light Nutella nutty as well and it end soft grassy. I guess you’re can say that it mellowed down and normalized itself a bit compared to the aroma. Still, it’s a nice light sweet APA. At least in the taste. 01.11.2013
