Copper colored beer with a dense which leaves a small ring. Aroma is very hoppy: piny, surprisingly citrusy. Taste: sweet, bit caramel-like, bitter finish which lingers. Palate: watery, ok. Very nice ipa, especially the citrusy aroma is remarkable.

Koelschtrinker (10962) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 22, 2014
Stark karbonisierter, intensiv grasig hopfiger Antrunk. Süßlich, vollmundig, ab dem Mittelteil zunehmend herber. Zitrus, Mango, weiterhin sehr hopfig. Zum Ende süßlich dunkelmalzig, was sich im Nachgeschmack zusammen mit der Hopfigkeit zum Hauptaroma entwickelt. 11/12/9/11/9/12

Svesse (6234) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2014
(Bottle, Café de la Gare, Den Haag, 21 Aug 2014) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with citrus, caramel, orange peel, grapefruit and dried apricots. Malty, fruity taste with notes of citrus, grapefruit, resin, caramel and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Well balanced with a solid malt backbone and an impressive hop presence. Very nice.

Smells of citrus and mealy apples. Dense and firm head. Taste is weak, but hoppy. No outstanding flavours. Not much of an aftertaste, apart from some bitterness.

In bottle. Very hoppy and malty with high level of alcohol. This is the rare beer where the alcohol level makes sense. Smells like bread, candy, and biscuit. Excellent as an after-dinner treat.
