Amber colour, medium latte head, lacing.

Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2010
3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy dark amber. Rocky off white head that slowly fades. Malt caramel aroma. Flavor is malt, hop, grass, bits of roast and caramel. Finish is a bit dry and sweet with roast, hop, bits of malt and caramel. Medium bodied. Not a well rounded brew. There seems to be different flavors hitting you from all sides at times. I mean you get the malt sweetness, then a zap from the hop, then back to malt sweet. It is a okay brew, not offensive, but a bit to malty for me. This is close to being a pale ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Jämtlands bryggeri är en hovleverantör av kvalitet. Komplex utan att bli avancerad. Kraftfull utan att tappa nyanserna. Ännu en fullträff, kort sagt.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber liquid with a medium sized fluffy dirty white head that left chunks of foam on the side of the glass.
Grassy hops, caramel, malt and fruits.
Caramel, malt, bread, fruits and citrus.
Smooth mouthfeel with just a little bit of sting, creamy, medium thick body and low carbonation.
Probably the best Easter beer so far. Good balance between bitterness and sweetness. It also had a noticeable hoppy and malty character.
Fairly enjoyable but I suspect this isn’t a great match with the Easter food. The bitterness isn’t very intense but I got a feeling it would clash with the salty Easter food, specifically anything containing dill.

Bottle 2010. Copper colored with a white head that leaves lots of nice lacing. Floral and herby aroma with some caramel and cookies. Taste is bitter and hoppy. Medium body, almost a bit light for its ABV. English styled in the typical Jämtland way.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Bishops Arms, Karlstad. Påsköl 2009 - is this a new one? Pours an amber color with a nice white head. Aroma is malty with caramel, toffee, dried fruits and some hops. Flavour is malty and caramely, somewhat sweet with toffee and dried fruits. Mostly aromatic hoppy with some grassy and citrusy notes. Light bitter finish. Smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonation, body is medium. A well done beer from Jämtlands - something of a "revenge" after their infected(?) IPA...
