COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Konungen pekar tydligt ut var glaset skall stå. Denna ”Strong Bitter” med klassiska mörka karamellmaltsmakerna har både fyllighet och styrka. Gustaf har ett uppfriskande humlebett där Chinook-, Brewers Gold- och Cascadehumle bidrar med smak och inbjudande arom.

Nice golden hazy honey coloured. A little white head that disappears quickly. Flowery smell with some citrus as well. Taste is hoppy, and not too bitter. Nice aftertaste. A good beer, with or without the company of food:) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle @ home. Pours a dark amer liquid with a large, thick tan head. Aroma of caramel, bread, nuts, biscuits, slight chocolate & citrus. Similar taste, with dry finish and balanced spicy bitterness.

Une ESB ambrée, ou une strong dark bitter, comme vous l’entendez. Niveau abv de 5,8 % , 3 houblons : Chinook, Brewer’s Gold et Cascade. Mon exemplaire avait dépassé sa date de deux tiers d’année. Couleur entre ambre foncé et roux moyen, à la clarté nette. Bulles quasi nulles, mousse qui est un super mince voile : deux caractéristiques dues à l’âge sans doute. Arômes d’une grande délicatesse, avec du malt cara, raisins secs, miel, acajou, prune, marmelade d’abricots mûrs. 1ère bouche souple à la belle entame sur malt cara avec une pointe de muscade. Arrière-bouche très douce, mais pleine de nuances, fruitée et aussi amère. 2ème bouche très légèrement fumée, avec du tabac blond. Arrière-bouche entre fruits et épices. Très belle. 3ème assez dense, plutôt épicée. Arrière-bouche équilibrée et longue. La longueur ramène le miel, et en même temps un peu de bois blanc. L’amertume se trouve surtout dans les arrière-bouches. Jambes fines, bien marquées. Levure douce, fine, belle tout en manquant un peu de caractère. Alcool correct pour le genre. Il travaille honnêtement. Finale qui manque de complexité. CONCLUSION : une ESB qui ne dépareille pas le genre, et est même originale par sa couleur. Quand à dire que je prendrais cette bière en référence, c’est un pas que je ne franchirai pas ...

Murky red - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry with moderate fine carbonation. Malts taste a little oxidised, that tired caramel. Touch of tea. Decent orange on the backend but it’s not hoppy bitter. Finishes semi dry. Overall a sweetish beer, not that bitter a bitter then!

gegwilson (2173) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle from the Fyne Ales brewery shop. Pours deep amber with a good cream head. Sweet fruity aroma. The taste starts sweet with caramel, green fruit, apricot and pineapple. The finish has a touch of bitterness. Could do with a bit more punch and body.

Lovely clear red brown liquid, lacks a head... Caramel, bread, simple cittic hops, some pineapple... Great bitter sweet taste, good medium body, low on carbs, malty caramel finish...
