3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber with a brief white head. Fresh aroma of hops, malt and grass. The taste was medium sweet with hops, fruit, malt and caramel. Refreshing and a nice beer to drink. However far from a traditional German Okberfestbier.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. This one’s all about hops, and that’s not bad. However, I kind of miss the nice maltiness present in the earlier Mohawk-lagers. This one’s a bit, overhopped, bitter and not at all true to style. Drirnkable, tough.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle from Systebolaget i Mölndal. BB 130103, consumed on September 17, 2012
Very well filled bottle, very little headspace. Small co2 sound (pys) when opening.
Hazy amber color, big lasting white head. Citrus, tropical fruit, sweet, malty, hops, fresh, caramel, mango, slight bit resin scent. Sweet, caramel, herbal, hoppy, bitter, round, biting taste. Starts off sort of sweet, turns more to a lingering bitterness along the way, via fairly large hop bite to it. Aftertaste is mainly hoppy resinous bitter. Pretty rich mouthfeel, feels like either low co2, or that it has merged into the beer more. Fairly high to high bitterness. Balancing on tipping over to "too bitter" for my taste, but still without tipping the scales. Might lure both hop lovers and hop moderate persons. Nice one.

330ml Bottle - Amber with a small head. Grapefruit and biscuity malt in the aroma. Hoppy, malty and slightly sweet taste with notes of toffee, grapefruit and pine. Nice, but not particularly authentic for the style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Smelling fresh citric and herbal, lime, grape-fruit and fresh cut grass.
Appearance: The beer is clouded murky straw colored, a warm off-white head leaving loads of lacing, small curtains.
Taste: A small sweet white bread start, then bitter grape-fruit, juice, peel and seeds.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, fresh with a small body, a short rather intense dry finish.
Overall: A real nice summer (!) lager, very refreshing aroma hops, a very AIPAish lager.

Härlig mörk färg. Doft av humle och mer humle. Len munkänsla och mer humle...Vad vill Stefan Gustavsson med denna oktoberöl? Förnya genre?? Ta bort humlen och kvar blir en välgjord öl.
