Hugh (153) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2008
Amber ale, mouth filling malt body, unremarkable flavour which is quite pleasant. However, after swallowing, it tasted like I’d also drunk a set of cutlery. Quite remarkably metally aftertaste, and the skin test reinforced this. Aside from this, quite drinkiable. Evidence if yeast deposit in the bottle, which was welcome having drunk their "bottle conditioned" Sloeber.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2008
Pours out in a hazy reddish orange colour with a large firm white head. Lively carbonation. Spicy and yeasty aroma with notes of white bread, nuts, red berries and dust. Medium to full bodied with a strong yeasty and spicy presence of pepper, thyme and white bread with touches of roasted malts, toffee and alcohol. Long warming finish of spices, fudge, white bread and mild herbs

jacobwennbom (352) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2008
Looks great. Deep amber with big off white head. Aromas are fruity and malty. Taste is malty, fruity and less sweet than I had expected. Not to bitter either, but it feels balanced. I like it.

Svesse (6076) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2008
(Bottle) Amber colour with big, frothy, off-white head. Fruity, slightly metallic nose with apricots, toffee and caramel. Fruity taste with apricots, toffee, biscuity malt and a slightly spicy finish. Sweetish, but staying within balance. Medium body. Solid and tasty, but wouldn’t suffer from more punch and personality.
