3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bishops Arms, Folkungagatan, September 2012.
A bit hazy amber with a small white head. The aroma was fruity with spices, pine, some yeast and notes of earth. The taste was rather dry with fruit, spices, some yeast, malt and "green" hops. Not excellent but an interesting one.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught) Pours deep amber to reddish brown with a creamy, sand coloured head. The aroma is surprisingly clean but maybe a bit too "all over the place" with notes of pine, wood, tropical fruits, sticky jam, caramel, syrup, honey, light marzipan, dough and spices. The flavour is light to medium sweet, medium to heavily bitter and light acidic with notes of with lots of green/citric/tiny unclean hops, concentrated malt and fairly complex yeast. The mouthfeel is round, fairly clean and sticky with a light to medium carbonation. Too unfocused hop finish. Medium bodied.
