thebeertourist (5094) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2008
On tap at Bishops Arms, Stockholm. A beautiful pour gave a huge, creamy yellowish head on top of the red copper beer. Milk chocolate aroma as well as fruit. In fact, very bitter, but still ending with dry chocolate flavours. Fruity hops. A bit too thin body for all the rich flavours. A magnificent beer it is. Original, too.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - AUG 12, 2008
Draught at YNWA in kolding. Tasty brew indeed. Quite hazy brown colour with a medium off-white creamish head. Malty and quite fruity aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a good frutiness with some caramel, malt and little bit of pine.

mjs (5312) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2008
(Draught, as Hantverksbryggeriet IPA, at Gastropub Nordic on 2008-08-08) Amber and clear. Dirty brown stained white big head. Sour and hoppy nose. Medium-bodied dry palate. Sour taste with lightly roasted malts, bitterness and fruitiness. The sourness makes me wonder whether there has happened some error in brewing process.

thewolf (11490) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2008
Tap @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours muddy pale orange with a medium, creamy egg-whipped white head. Great duration and fine lacing. Aroma is softly fruity hopped. A little caramel and slight fruity tartness. Medium carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is very dry, fine flowery and fruity hoppiness. Very light caramel. Super nice, long, dry finish. Perhaps the hops profile is a little too sharp instead of being crisp.

fiulijn (16426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2010 2010-02-18, draught at Nya Tröls, Malmö, 6-4-7-4-14=35
Golden color, big head. Aroma of yeast and the hop cupboard, it smells like a brewery at work. Toffee-styled Golden ale, spiced and robustly hopped, no thrills.

2007-09-22, draught at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007, 7-5-7-4-15=39
Beautiful hazy copper color; big creamy head. Nice hop aroma, delicate, earthy, with light fruits and resins. Mellow flavor, malty, sweet toffee, with good hopping, very well aromatic, a bit fruity and resiny. Long and strong final. Very well brewed and pleasant.
