This is for me like a toned down jarl despite its higherabv. the characteritics are there, i suspect is a change in the malt base. still a lovely beer but overshadowed by jarl

rosenbergh (6828) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2012
500 ml bottle. L3110. BB Apr 2013. From the Fyne Ales Brewery in Cairndow, Scotland.
Cloudy pale yellow golden colour with small to average sized fluffy white head. ^ Fruity hoppy aroma with some sweetness and mild bitterness. Malty body. Flavour is moderately bitter with fruity and resiny hops. Nice balanced flavour with malty body. Tasty. They really can brew balanced and rich brews even with the low abv. I want more!
