2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper in color. Lot’s of fruit and perfume in the nose, the aroma is almost bubblegum-like. More entertaining that you would expect from this brewery. The taste is also fruity and with lot’s of aromatic (citric) hoppy notes. May contain cascade, perhaps? My overall impression is: Better than you would expect.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2007 Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Deep clear copper with a medium beige head. Fruity malt aroma with dark chocolate, fudge, some wood, and some citric hops. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Nicely balanced with a relatively long bitter finish. A bit bock-like.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2008 Bottled. Pours out in a clear reddish amber colour with a low beige foam. Toasted malts, almond, mild licorice and ryebread in the aroma. Toasted malts, caramel and nuts in the clean flavour with a mild bitterness and roastiness in the finish. Quite decent, considering it’s brewed by Carlsberg Sverige.
