3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
300ml draught, served lightly chilled at Bishops Arma, Vasagatan. Beige, patchy surface that left spotty lacing behind. Dark amber appearance with a reddish tint. Very slight haze to the body colour. Aroma of dried fruits with apricot to the fore. Blended taste of fresh and dried fruits like lemon and apricot. Some hints of berries, too, and sweet malts beneath. Modest dry, bitter end. Pleasant, even though the texture felt a bit watered (Stockholm, 05.02.2010).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg (Bishops Arms, Stockholm)
Marmalade colour, cloudy, thin keggy head. Peach and mandarin aroma. Simple fruity ale taste, masses of fruity hops. Delicious, but I’ve had this kind of thing 100 times before, and it’s lost the excitement that the first one I tasted provided.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Bishop’s Arms, Vasagatan, Stockholm
Hazy blond color. The hop gives a nice fruity character to the aroma, light soap, light yeast. Dry and weak mouthfeel, light malt flavor, strong bitterness; but the flavor doesn’t keep up with the aroma.
