COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amerikansk Strong Ale. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad ale med kraftiga citrusaromer från användandet av amerikanska humlesorter och en speciell humlingsteknik kallad Hop-Bursting där man tillsätter kontinuerligt ökande mängd humle för att ge en kraftig humlearom. Humlesorterna är Amarillo, Brewers Gold, Cascade, Chinook, Columbus, Northern Brewer, Saaz och Simcoe. Den kraftiga humleprofilen balanseras av en rund och mjuk maltighet som kommer sig av användandet av mycket Mynchenermalt. Detta kompletteras av Pilsner-, Crystal, och Pale Chocolate malt. 2009 års version bryggdes hos Sigtuna Brygghus.

gyllenbock (4091) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2009
Bottle. The color was dark brown with hints of red. The foam was a few centimeters high, compact. A lot of hops and citrus in the aroma as well as cardboard and cakes. The taste was not bad, dark chocolate, grape, licorice, grass also a slight acidity. What bothered me a little was the somehow "rude" bitterness that existed in the finish.

Linnet (1030) - Umeå, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2009
Big creamy thick bege head. Deep ruby colour lots of lacing. roma is full of passion fruit, grapefruit, lemon, pine very nice, but a bit too faint. Same flavours as in the nose and again a bit too faint to get a top mark. Mouthfeel is smooth but a bit too flat. Sigtuna is really on to something nowadays, if they turn their brews up a notch more they will be great.

Marsiblursi (2985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2009
(Bottle) Pours deep amber red to mahogany brown with a creamy, nougat coloured head. The aroma holds mild resinous, herbal, floral and citric hops alongside a good malt foundation of cookies, caramel, milk chocolate/chocolate covered coffee beans and bread. Tiny hints of tropical fruits, rhubarb, gooseberry peels, pine soap and plums lurking in the background. Good balance between the US hop profile and the robust English-inspired malt backbone. Light salty in the nose. The flavour is light sweet, medium to heavily bitter and light acidic with notes of citrus/grapefruit, pine, burned cookies, caramel, mild roast and hints of fruits. The bitterness overshadows the nice malt blend. The mouthfeel is round and silky malt wise, but the bitterness is too aggressive in the finish. Alcohol also a bit too present. Lingering hoppy aftertaste of resin and earth. Medium (almost medium to full) bodied. This is a well-made brew - great malt bill and I have no problem with the aroma and flavour hops but the afterbitterness is not my friend.

Frovigalning (2720) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2009
It poured a very dark hazy red liquid with a medium sized beige foam that left a nice lacing. The smell was filled with fresh hops. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium-high bitterness and med-high thick body. Tasted of lots of hops, both grassy and fruity. After a while I noticed some herbs and spices hidden behind all the hops. A very nice beer, but it didn’t really feel like a christmas beer. But for all the hop heads this might be the beer for you this christmas.
