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.

02.08.2012. 0,33l Bottle. Systembolaget Strömstad. Dark brown colour with off-white head. Very nice smoothe bitter aroma. There is also a strong rich flavour of dark malts. Aftertaste is bitter with flavours of straw.

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...

MSBrindbergs (211) - Solna, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2014
Flaska från SB. Grumlig mörk bärnsten med noll skum i princip. Doftar ok av malt och humle, något fruktigt. Smaken är inget att skriva hem till morsan om dock. Söt och tråkig. Ingen rolig beska heller.

erickok (3415) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 23, 2014
Floral hops, yellow fruit, light cheesy yeast. Soft sweet taste with modern but only moderate hop bitterness. Soft ending, foamy carbonation. I wasn’t too impressed overall. It’s a simple style but especially for the abv I expected a richer taste. I would like a more crisp carbonation. (33cl bottle from De Hopduvel)

ogivlado (5539) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottled 330ml. -Unclear amber coloured, small off-white head, quite strong dry caramel nose. Sweet malty, dry caramel and nutty with notes of hops and fruits. Again quite dry finish. One-dimensional and average.

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.

This beer is way under-rated, one of my favourite incarnations of a (ES)bitter.

JorisPPattyn (7794) - 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.

sic1314 (3048) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2014
Poured medium amber with a small off white head. Aroma of sweet chocolate malt and some nuts, light hops. Medium to full body, flavour is nutty, sweet milk chocolate, toasted malt. Sweet nutty finish.

skortila (4424) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. 33 cl full sample. The aroma is floral, has caramel maltiness, some toasty tones, light citric. Clear, red-brown coloured (amber if you wish) with an off-white lasting head. The taste is caramelly sweet, light bitter and has a nice floral-citric hoppiness to it. Medium carbobated. relative easy drinking considering the malty sweetness. Found it to be a pleasant one.
