3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wonderful aroma of this beer. The taste is almost as good. Decent with taste. I drank this yesterday on Roger Karlsson’s releases at Eskilstuna beer culture. When I created the beer, I forgot to add that the beer will in future be known as Röd Ocean.
Earlier Rating: 1/11/2013 Total Score: 2.5
The aroma is metallic and thin like the taste. The aftertaste is barely and it tastes mostly water unfortunately. This beer was much better two years ago.

Murky brown with nice stable beige head. Nice sweet hops, classic mix with modern appeal, nice fruity base to go with it. Caramel and mild cheese yeast. Super nice drinkable palate, well flavourful without extremities. Nutty bretty dry end. Very good. (At Deanso’s tasting)

Bottle @ sticky floor tasting. Goddamn René, YOU ARE FUCKING AMAZING FOR BRINGING THIS BOTTLE, PRAIS ALL COMMONLY AVAILABLE GODS and OTHER FORMS OF HEAVENLY LIFE.
Aroma is nice bready hoppy caramel. Flavour is quite bitter and dry, with a nice fruity hops and a bready almost ryish malt note. Great.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle picked up in Kiruna, ordered from Systembolaget, e-beställning. Shared with Finn. Deep ruby coloured body. Off-white head. Fragile lacing. Dark fruity nose. Apricot, plums and caramel malts in flavour supported by a spicy touch. Jam-like impression. Creeping dry bitterness towards the ending. Quite well balanced. Promising start to our rating session of brews from Eskilstuna (at Finns in Tromsø, 27.09.2012).
