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.

omhper (23313) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2007
Bottled. Pale brown, brief head. Syrupy bready nose. Sweet and bland with evident metal. Feels diluted and raw. Like if it you have just drank half the bottle and then filled it up with water. Some light resiny bitterness doesn’t save it. Almost worse then some of the local Carlsberg low-alc swill.
