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.

espenra (873) - Kurland, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2011
33cl bottle from Systembolaget. Best before 2012-06-11. It poured a golden colour with a massive head and lots of carbonation. Hops is the first thing that springs to mind about the aroma. On subsequent sniffs nuts, malts and some caramel reveals themselves as well. Flavour is typical of an ESB. Nuts, caramel and toffee. A tad oily. No hops at first, but they take some time to show up, but when they do they linger for a ling time. Matching bitterness that isn’t too dominant. Medium long aftertaste.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2012
330ml bottle thanks to Cousin Matt. Pours misted copper with a tidy, fine-moussed off white head. Malt-driven aroma with hints of fig and milk chocolate coated toffee. Flavour similar; figgy, sweet, lightly sprinkled with mocha and berry notes; hints of toffee and rust. Decent.

Bamsen78 (3139) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with stable beige head. Clear aroma of hops, malt and caramel with subtle fruity notes. Sweetish, malty flavour with fruity and caramel notes and touches of hops. Bitter aftertaste. A nice thing.

Nice crown. Caramel and toffee aroma; some metal also. Fruity caramel flavor with hints of peppermint candy cane. Low bitterness for a bitter.

JorisPPattyn (7908) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2014
Just too much yellowish head for a true B.C."H." Veiled amber beer. Fruity, faintly spicy hops, caramel, cookies, rainwater; inconcspicuous. BItter-hoppy, but with quite some caramel behind it. Hint at diacetyl. Vegetable bitterness taking over, but always mild. Well-carbonated, light body, refreshing until the aftertaste, where there is a flavour of hazelnuts. Good imitation of a British "ESB", down to the diacetyl. The originals will win hands down on cask, of course.

Specific smell quite difficult to identify (for me..). Kind of dark colour with, very CO2 ish head that disappears quickly. Taste like it smells - light bitter taste. Medium sticky palate. Overall OK but not of my favourites.
