2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Red pour with a slight off white head. My first take was: ugh this is old and oxidized. Then I read the can and realized it’s not just a hoppy red but an odd hoppy red. Some fruit and oak astringency with some bitterness in the finish. Kind of an odd profile of flavors that clash with the malt. Cool to try.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- Blackberry, butter, pine, toast.
A- Orange color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Blackberries, pine, slightly bitter, malty.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish.
O- Sure, it’s an amber ale, but it’s an amber ale with a bit of character! The pine adds a nice bitterness to it but not over done, then you get the blackberries, or maybe not that but some nice fruity nose and palate that is very subtle yet pleasing. Also a random bit of butter to it. And it worked well. Not bad, not bad at all.

Can at Örebro Ölcafé. Fruity smell with an aroma that I have a hard time pinpointing. I think it’s gooseberry, white wine and blackberry. Similar taste, malty and hoppy. A bit buttery. Very smooth and easy to drink.

Can. Clear, copper amber color with a decent head. Aroma is a tad weak with a fruity pine smell. Taste was also weak, a citrus kind of taste. Just an average brew.
