330ml bottle from Cunningham. Huge thanx for that one!!!
Pours reddish amber colored with small creamy head. Smell is malty-caramelly, fruity, slight chocolatey. Starts with great hop flavor, fruity, with some citrus and pine woods. The middle part has lots of dark malts, dark fruits and fruity-citrussy hops. Goes into a hoppy-fruity, citrussy and malty-roasty finish! Really great one!

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smells pretty much, tastes not as much but is good in taste. The aftertaste remains for a long time. Hard to say anything about this beer. I thought it was okay to drink. But no beer I would buy again though.

330 ml bottle. Brown and clear. Small fine off-white head. Caramel and toffee, and perhaps a little coffee too. Nutty flavours with hints of licorice. Light-bodied and crisp with little hoppy bite. Nicely balanced. A good session beer.

Taste: Tasting brown bread, ripe apples, bitter orange marmalade and lemon peel.
Palate: Medium carbonation, a soft texture. A medium body with a somewhat dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bärnstensfärgad öl med vitt skum. Doft av citrusfrukter och viss kryddighet. Samma återkommer i smaken tillsammans med en trevlig beska. Ölet känns dock något tunnt. Kanska pga av den lägre alkoholhalten?
