2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium white lasting head. Muddy opaque amber body. Faint fruity aroma. Bitter resiny grassy taste with fruity sugary notes. Oily mouthfeel. Mid-to-full body. Bitter grassy resiny aftertaste with wooden dandelion notes. Served too cold, and not enough aroma. Not bad, though. (0.33 draft at Monk’s Café, Stockholm.)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub, Wallingatan location
Deep blond color, quite flat (new tap). Strange aroma, fruity (oranges), flowery, perfumy, grassy. Lean mouthfeel, with some toffee and cookie flavor, correct bitterness. The final is too short. Pleasant but weird.
