COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Malten ger ölet kropp och humle dess själ. I de flesta öl används flera olika humlesorter. Här har vi endast den amerikanska humlesorten Chinook som har stor karaktär och ger associationer till citrus och tallskog. Ett antal mellanmörka maltsorter ger ölet en behaglig brödighet och en vacker rödbrun färg. Jämför gärna med andra humlesorter i våra andra single hop.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle shared during the Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting - London. Many thanks to Paul. Pours cloudy amber with a frothy, off-white head. I’d say this has some kind of infection, though it probably makes the beer more interesting. Brett in the nose with notes of poo and citrus fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor with clean brett funk, barnyard and dry grapefruit. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Clean finish with bitter pine, citrus rind, light grass and more barnyard. I liked it.

Scopey (7058) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle via trade, shared at the Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting. It pours hazy deep amber with a medium yellow-white head. The nose is earth, leaf, wood and resin. The taste is bitter-sweet, wood, varnish, resinous, good deal of bitterness, peppery, woody, earth and some astringency with a very dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Big bitterness, but not a whole lot of character. Not bad.

Theydon_Bois (9110) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Craft Clerkenwell, Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting, bottle thanks to Paulo, 17/09/13. Hazed amber with a moderate sized off white head of bubbles. Nose is summer fruits, light hops, bitter orange, toasted malt. Taste comprises orange pith, grass, toasty malts, grapefruit, light hoppage. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish. Drinkable affair but some way short of a standout APA.

Flaska ebest SB. Grumlig bärnstensfärgad med rosavitt gräddigt skum. Dofter av citrus, karamell, tallbarr. Tydlig grapebeska. Liten sötma. Citrus, tallbarr och karamell även i smaken. Oljig munkänsla.

Craft Clerkenwell. Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting! Think this was Paul. Cheers! Hazy amber beer with a small white head. Palate is softish and semi dry with mild fine carbonation. Creamy malt, quite airy. Light ripe orange and a slightly earthy - wood flavour that is more akin to Columbus. Finishes semi dry. Woody orange aftertaste.

Darker than the previous ales I’ve had from Eskilstuna. They all look unfiltered but I can’t see they mentioning it. The aroma is weak but the taste makes up for it. Wish they used a little more hops. They make quality beer. Would be nice to have again though.
