3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
