omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2009
Draught at Monk’s Café Sveavägen, Stockholm. Cloudy pale amber, small head. Lovely rich tropical fruit aroma. With restrained swetness and beautifully curvy, yet slim body, seemless flavour of gooseberries,mang and lychee it’s a very directly appealing beer. With increasingly powerful bitterness stopping just short of inkyness it’s perfectly carried out. If anything it is, like most IPAs, not very complex. It’s all about American hops.

Frovigalning (2884) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2009
Poured a hazy golden liquid with a small foam that left a nice lacing. It had a strong smell of grassy hops, citrus and grapefruit. The taste is very fresh with medium to high bitterness. Lots of grapefruit and grassy hops. A very enjoyable beer, I would love to have this on a sunny day.

Monks Cafe Porterhouse. Very hazy amber beer, big white head. Palate is soft and airy and slightly dry. Soft airy creamy malt supports good hops. Pine and lesser grass, tangerine and a touch of yellow grapefruit. Finish is soft and fluffy! Medium bitter linger - good stuff!

Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2009
(Draught at Monk’s Café, Sveavägen, Stockholm, 24 Jan 2009) Cloudy amber colour with brief, white head. Fruity nose with notes of orange peel, mandarin and dried apricots. Fruity, hoppy taste with orange, mandarin, apricots and a fresh, citrussy bitterness in the finish. Very fresh hop character. Nice beer. In short: fresh hops and citrus.
