COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

@ Havregatan. Bottle (330 ml) from Systembolaget (17:-). Malty and fruity with caramely and nutty notes, sweet, medium body with a watery to oily texture. The finish is dry and light bitter with malty notes.

Deep red colour, nice white head, disappearing quickly. I smelled some hoppy notes, taste is bitter with some sweetness a bit watery maybe. Don’t drink it too cold, I was at first disappointed when I drank it sraight out of the fridge. But once you let it "warm" up a bit it’s a very decent beer. Still the one I like least from the 4 I got so far from this brewery.

olsvammel (3464) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Fairly strong smell of caramel and malt. Sweet taste with caramel and malt. Feels very onesided and the flavour isn’t that pure. Hardly any bitterness. Drinkable but not very exciting.

Lilja (1735) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, choklad, brunt socker med toner av röda bär och laktris. Rund och len, lagom sötma, lätt kropp, fin beska.

An ok representation of a style I don’t get excited about too often. Nothing wrong with it, and nothing that stands out either. OK nutty malty brew.

No this was not a very tasty beer why you say because it didn’t taste of anything, except burnt flavors and a slight coffee note. It went down the drane pretty fast.

ziobarba2000 (13) - Roma, ITALY - SEP 6, 2014
Bottiglia da 0,50. Rossa di buona qualità. Aroma intenso. Schiuma poco persistente e rapidamente evaporata. Gusto affumicato e decisamente amarognolo. Finale caramellato. Consiglio 7/10
