COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, pasteurised;
It’s rich amber colour and superb fruity aromas are complemented by a delicious blend of malty yastes. Toffee and malt combine with bitterness on the back of the tongue to give a balanced sweetness. This is followed by a refreshingly dry finish.

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2012
(Bottle) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of apricots, toast, orange and slightly syrupy malt. Malty, fruity taste with toasty malt, apricots, citrus, bread, caramel and a decent citric bitterness in the finish. Rather light body, quite dry. Decent 3,5% version of the beer.

50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 06.11.2010
Vertical with 5,2% version. Surprisingly this one was worse
Aroma is a bit thin with grainy malt and some toffee. Flavour feels harsh, thin and grainy with toffee and hints of fruits. Also some vichy-like aromas typical for beers with low ABV. This is exactly what you can expect it to be: a thin and watery version of the original.

S_Side_Smitty (447) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Pours a clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma is peppery malts. Taste is bread, black pepper, and malts up front with a mild hoppy bitterness in the finish. Really not that bad. Score seems to low.

Nice caramel color, taste is smooth but kind of skunky. Taste gets better after beer has been sitting out for a while and half way in to the bottle. Overall its a decent beer. I wouldnt mind having it again but it would not be my first choice.

Psytron (1305) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2012
Slight malty smell. Rusty red colour. Small yellow-ish head. Rubbery aroma to start with. Also some sugar and candy to be noticed. Generally not very pleasant.

redpooba (396) - New York, USA - MAR 7, 2012
England is not known for its food, so the beer doesn’t follow well either. It’s light and crispness is like a standard red-ale, but a little smoother. The low alcohol reminds you of near-beer in Oklahoma.

One of my favorites, rich body and smooth. Great beer to just chill with but has some flavor. I recommend at least a try, worth the time ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
