3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled at SMÖF. Clear amber, small head. Aroma of smoke and wood. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Some honey, susprisingly slight hoppiness. More smoke than wood. Mid bitter finish. Not quite what I expected, and not really up to the same high standard as the beers I tasted in Härnösand in the summer.
