On tap @ The Rover, Göteborg. Pours an amber color with a nice white head. Aroma is very fresh and inviting with tropical fruits, pineapple, citrus and grapefruit. There’s also some caramely notes. Flavour is hoppy with a nice balanced malty caramel behind the fresh pineapple and grapefruity flavours. Palate is smooth and mediumbodied. Well made stuff, and I’m happy I met Dugge at 3 små rum later this night...

Hazy red-amber color; big creamy head. Hoppy aroma, caramel, creamy. Good body strength, good caramel flavor, with a touch of sweet liquorice; good hopping, with some resins. I miss some fruitness. Very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Rover 081223. Sweet and fruity aroma of citrus and dried fruit. Apricots, plums oranges and lemon merigue pie. Soft palate with sweet fruity notes and some caramelly malt. Finishes round and medium bitter. After a few sips you get the typical grainy Dugges character. Overall one of the best american style beer ever made in Sweden. Could damn well have been Sierra Nevada instead.
