4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö
Dark amber color; thin creamy cap. Very nice hoppy aroma, fruity over all, but also a bit resiny, and with a milky fudge touch. Very good body, not sticky, but with a good sweet caramel and malt flavor, complemented by the strong hopping, balancing between subtle fruitness and elegant resins. Needless to say, the final is very long and strong, still with some sugars to moderate the hops. Excellent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber pour completed by a light off-white head. A floral and herbal combination of hop aromas is supported by a toasty and bready malt foundation. While it grows a certain bitterness, it remains even maltier. Not as crisp nor aromatic as the excellent Dugges Holy Cow. It seems oilier, more hesitant and less bright despite being more piney and bitter. Still quality stuff though.

Draught at Glenfiddich Warehouse No. 68, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy brownish orange colour topped with a rich tan-coloured foam. Loads of aroma hops! Nectarines, pine-needles, sweet peaches, grapefruit and pine-apples. Medium-bodied with a well-rounded body. Nectarines and pine-apples in the flavour with notes of grass and malty notes of caramel. Not overly bitter but long finish of grapefruit and pine-cones. Yummy!!!
