3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A great pale ale, but the rating room odor was overly sour, probably affecting the taste of this very good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can, poured to a fest goblet, showing a lightly hazed, orangey gold color, with fair persistence to the soft white, frothy head foam, and good cling to the curtainy lacing. The nose was initially sweet, with malty biscuit, and orange, then soon exposed some earthy, herbal, & vegetal scents as tea & squash. The taste presented a hint of caramel, then earthy, rind-like, and lingering bitterness that grew as the tasting progressed, and esters as citrus & apricot that were not very expressive. Light to medium bodied, with fairly lively carbonation, as some dryness partnered up with the bitterness at the finish. A bit of a struggle to be refreshing & sessionable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Systembolaget (25 SEK). A bit surprised by the phenolic/soapy beligian style of the beer, even if this is not too dominant. Quite okay.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light pale brown with minimal head and lacing. Aroma is earthy, floral, a little roasted, peaty toffee malts. Taste is hops that are just starting to turn phenolic, with some mild bitterness coming in the middle, leading to an earthy malt aftertaste.

A new beer is always nice. Quite hard to find the aroma and the foam was not to my liking.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned. Pours golden with a huge white head. Smells and spicy hoppy, a bit grassy and funky and sweet with a funky hoppy bitter finish.

12oz can. Pours a light amber with minimal head. Nothing great here though it is drinkable. A bit on the watery side. Fairly run of the mill pale ale.
