Deep copper Brown Ale with roasted malt caramel-like fullness and a medium body. The beer is balanced with the firm clean bitterness of American Amarillo Hops, that whilst not strong in flavour or bitterness, are crucial to the overall complexity of this beer. Roast Caramel Malt and Milk Chocolate–like flavours are the hallmark of an American Style Brown Ale.

Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a clear dark amber liquid with a big pale golden-brown head. Mild smell of dark malts and fruits, feels like fruity hops. Similar taste, no flavours really stand out and there are some fruity hops in the background. But it feels like the hops is teasing me, I just feel like I want more of it.
