3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Bishops Arms. Pours dark amber with a hint of haziness and a thin but creamy beige head. Aroma is dominated by hops, citrus, flowers and pine. A little caramellish maltiness blends in with all the wonderful hops, and I sense a faint scent of yeast as well. Smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol not noticable, and a distinct bitterness lingers in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2009 On tap at The Rover, Gothenburg. Clear, copper color and a beige head leaving nice lacings. Hops and sweet malt in the aroma and flavor. The flavor has some beefstock notes as well. Full to medium body and a long, bitter finish. Rating: 6-3-6-3-13-3.1. (060824)
Bottle. An almost clear, copper beer with an off-white to beige head. Malty nose with fluorine-like hops and a slight touch of sourness. Sweet on the palate, medium- to full-bodied, with piney and fluorine-like hops. Fine bitterness in the finish. I’ve had it in my cellar too long, it lacks the freshness I’ve tasted before, but it’s a nice and easy drinkable beer with quenching qualities. Rating: 6-3-6-3-13-3.1. (090116)
From tank at the brewery. Clear, copper-colored beer with a creamy beige head. Pine, american hops, fruits and resin in the aroma. The flavor has pine, hops, fruits and some caramel notes. Full-bodied, with a long hoppy finish. A nice one from Dugges, but it felt better fresh from the tank than from tap at a bar. (060825)
