500 ml bottle, straight from the bottle. Aroma and taste of malt, liquorice, faint bread, herbs with a well balanced bitterness

Is this a joke? Let's put hops on the bottle and call it green, IPA and fresh and maybe we can dupe some wanna-be hop heads that they're drinking the real thing. The beer had almost no head, has aroma of something lagerish and tastes NOTHING of hops. It reminds me like one of those beers you get a the worst pub in town where people drink beer because it's cheap and it's alcohol. Bad, bad, bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle @ home. Crystal clear amber color. A fizzling thin white head that really quickly dissipates into nothing. Spicy aroma, biscuit maltiness , there’s a preponderance of cloves , with some licorice and unripe bananas. Sweet biscuit taste with a bit of caramel. Herbal/spicy English hop tones and some basil witch merges into cloves & ginger in the more dry finish. I also sense some anise. The bitterness is really low with a touch of cinnamon and orange. Medium body, high carbonation and a watery feeling in the finish. I sort of enjoyed it for being odd, but style-wise? I could have accepted it as a belgian inspired English IPA if it had bitterness to speak of, but it hasn’t.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Clear amber, no head. Weird aroma of ginger and menthe. Mid sweet with medium body and clean mouthfeel, almost flat. Fruity with lots of strange spices, ginger, cardamom and peppermint. Low bitterness. Shallow malt character. Just weird.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Pours golden color, a bit dull, initially, then it brightens up, with poor head. Aroma of biscuity malts, mild, but also a strange herbal note , basil sage and some coriander spice. The mouthfeel is dryish, it has some malt flavor, light caramel, but disturbed by a similar herbal flavor, add a perception of aniseed too; ordinary bitterness.
Just messy.

Bottle. Clear golden liquid with with small white head. Aroma of spices, bread, ginger, earth, metal, ash and toast. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of bread, ginger, ash and metal. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Quite bad.

Frovigalning (2694) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2013
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Fresh and herbal taste with something that reminds me of basil. Fresh and light taste. Light like a pilsner but with a soft bitterness. Easy to drink but doesn’t stand out. I would never have guessed IPA on this one.

Jorn69 (556) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2013
@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (35:-). Doft av framförallt kardemumma, men även kanel och malt. I den peppriga smaken finns mycket kardemumma, men också lakrits och malt. Inte speciellt besk och alldeles för lite kolsyra. Det här är verkligen ingen IPA!

Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden beer with a smeall offwhite head. Strange herbal earthy aroma, plastic, caramel, coriander, some other spices. Spicy coriander flavor, hay, some bitterness, maybe some belogoyeast. Really strange. Far from an IPA, far from good.
