3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a lush red-amber coloured a with a good thick white head that appears to have had a think about hanging around and is slowly deciding against it. Aromas of good dessert malt: caramel, nectarine tart tatin, biscuits, golden syrup and toffee. All of this suggests that it smells sweet, but it isn’t that sweet. It is luscious though, like a busty winking redhead.
Succumb to its charms and it rewards you with a lovely toffeeish kiss. It is like gorgeous roasty caramels on autumnal fruits. In other words, that busty redhead has drawn you aside and don’t make any plans for being clothed for an hour or so. Not the best analogy for beer consumption, but I qualify that by saying that this beer just demands your attention and a pint of this is never enough. It has all the elements of a sweet sessionable ale and if I can draw the comparison with a tryst with an auburn seductress, then I will... have... hmm. Yes.
May I have another?

Not perfect, but one of the better beers I've tried recently. I'd definitely recommend it, along with every other beer from this fine brewery.

Flaska@Svenska Hamburgerköket. Kopparfärgad vätska. Doftar sädigt hö. Lätt karamellig inledning. Neutral beska som dröjer sig kvar. Lite meh, hade förväntat mig mer.

Bottle from Cork 57. Copper body indeed with faint head. Nose is nice and hoppy. Taste is hops, and malts and caramel and citrus. Nicely carbonated and texture. Bitter in the finish. Really well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle that I got locally, either at Dutch’s or the Party Source. I’m not sure how I never had one before now. Anyway, it pours a clear amber with a small off-white head that leaves a half ring and a small island of film. Notes of tea, toasted and amber malts, brown sugar, leafy and floral hops. Light-bodied, with moderate cabronation and a smooth, tea-like mouthfeel. I guess I’ve never made it a point to try it because it’s an amber ale, but it’s a damn good example of the style, as expected.
