rlgk (14691) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2004 RERATE: On tap at Plain Kitchen, Goteborg, Sweden. This is a good example of how a very good beer gets even better on tap. Great toffee and vanilla aroma with butterscotch. Malty butterscotchy flavor with vanilla notes, mixed with a nice hoppy bitterness. A favourite, thats for sure. Old rating: Amber color, with a nice creamy and lasting brownish head. Aroma is very good from toffee and caramel, maybe some citrus in it as well. Has a good palate and flavor starts in a rather mild way. Then it turns into quite a bitterness. A little roasted, maybe just a little too bitter. (8/3/6/4/15)

Ruby red color, small but steady coffee head. Nice hoppy aroma (grapefruit, pineapple). Medium-bodied. Cracker malty, pine needles hoppy (Cascade?). Kind of American feeling here. Well balanced winterbier - not very Christmasy though.

Oakes (13601) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2000
Dark mahogany hued ale, subtley spiced with what tastes like cinnamon and orange zest, but also with good dark malt character and the trademark earthy hoppiness and notes of cocoa. A little sweeter than your average Jamtlands.

Bottle, bought at Systembolaget, Malmö. Thank you, myrup. Pours great mahogany with a small, frothy/creamy, off-white head. Mild aroma, some roasted malts, a little fruitiness and general sweetness. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel - light dryness. Fine malty flavour, light chocolate, fine roasted malts. Good dryness. Some light cherries with some light hoppiness. Really nice and very drinkable.

Anna says: Red-brown. Aroma of light hops. Slight sour-fruits accompanies a restrained bitterness for a refined taste. A little sweetness and spices (with a hint of zest perhaps) but quite drinkable because they are not overdone. Unusually, Phil did not share this.
