Bottle share at Craft Beer Co Islington as ’Jämtlands Hell’. Many thanks to Chriso for this beer of indeterminate age. Dark orange, still, slight haze, foamy cream head, some lacing. Aroma is apple, light bubblegum, yeasty, malt sugars, light oxidation. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is smooth malt, touch of sherry, light yellow plum. Pretty good for age. Would be interesting to try it fresh to see if I’d give it a lower score! (3.0)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
When pouring the beer, you get a completely clear golden yellow / red beer with white foam. The foam has small bubbles and stay a while. The scents are fine. Good hops tones with a little burnt elements. A little fruity scent with fragrance dough. You feel the taste of hops in pretty fast. The taste has some sweet bread flavor and malt. Many earthy tones, a little alcohol. Fine robust bitterness with spicy flavors, such as citrus and some pepper notes. Quite a nice balance that probably develop in the bottle.
