4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2011 Bottle. Poured a rich copper in color with a very small (less than 1 finger) white foamy head and had poor lacing.
The aroma was of roasted bread malts, a grassy hop and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel, orange and a bit of honey.
It tasted sweet and malty with a note of caramel in the beginning then progressed into a bitter-sweet-malty flavor with a nice hint of citrus and a touch of honey at the end allowing the flavor to last a decent amount of time after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was medium to full in body and dry in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall a brew with a nice smooth hoppy aftertaste. One to put on the my favorites list.

Flaska bishops Gustav, Malmö - bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Jästfällning kvar i flaskan vilket är trevligt och gör ölet något grumligt.

Some light citrus hops and a pretty rich malt profile. Pours amber with decent initial head and lacing. Pretty viscous texture, especially for style. Light sweet and sour finish. Light caramel. Bottle from Chevy chase.

Poured into a shaker pint, red copper color for sure with a slightly off-white head. Aroma is malty and sweet with a hop presence toward the end. Taste is malt, brown sugar, slight bitterness with a smooth finish. Overall a satisfying red ale.

Transfer from BA review on 3-2-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance –Pours a beautiful clear copper color with a thick and rocky cream colored head. The head fades quite slowly over time, leaving a nice level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The smell is sweet and malty with notes of caramel and toffee backed by a lightly roasted malt and a grainy aroma.
Taste – The taste is fairly uniform throughout, yet very nice and smooth. It is largely of sweet caramel and brown sugar mixed with flavors of a biscuit breadiness and flavors of roasted malt. More toward the middle to the end there is a very light amount of earthy hop which comes to the tongue all in all leaving a nice sweet but clean taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is on the averages to slightly below average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is quite average. The thinner body is actually complimenting of the sweeter flavors of the brew and make it quite easy to drink.
Overall-This is a tasty amber ale a little on the sweeter side with great smoothness and drinkability.
