gnoff (7983) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 First rating
Draught at Ölrepubliken during "Närkevecka", on February 27, 2013
Hazy golden color, fairly big lasting cream colored head. Sweet, floral, summer meadow, weeddy flower scent after rain, bubblegum, curious and unusual, though not bad, scent. Sweet, herbal, floral, sugary, flower stems, some red berries, dew or rain infused meadow character taste. Sweet, herbal, bubblegum, floral aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, frairly moderate co2 level. Pretty low bitterness.
Since "Älgört/Älggräs" (Meadowsweet) was a farily common herb to use in flavoring of beer in sweden before hops became common this is an extra interesting beer for me. I now feel I want to pick some and make a beer of my own in this "old style" Swedish beer.
Uncommon but very nice and interesting scent and taste indeed.
After a while getting used to the first impressions I pick up loads of cinnamon on both and scent and taste that I didn’t get at first.

Draught at Bishops Arms Järntorget, on June 7, 2013.
Hazy honey color, fluffy white head. Floral, perfume, sassafras, fresh and nice scent. Fresh, perfume, floral, summer meadow after some rain and then sun taste. Floral, sassafras aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Very very nice, especially the scent, and I feel again I want to brew something similar for a homebrew.

sebletitje (6916) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2013
Draft @ Bishops Arms Järntorget, Göteborg. Couleur dorée pâle, col blanc fin. Arôme est vraiment subtile et original dans l’usage de la reine des prés qui ajoute un bouquet somptueux fleuri, herbacé, de pétale avec une pointe de douceur. Le tout rappelle ce côté sassafras utilisé dans les root beer américaines. Palais présente un fleuri superbe avec ce côté sureau, bourgeon, pétale. Le tout conserve un petit côté doux avec un côté malté caramel arrivant en fin de bouche. Une expérience unique qui fait penser aux grandes régions sauvages et prairies et sous-bois du nord de la Suède

KyotoLefty (6739) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 29, 2013
Draught at Borefts, 2013. Oily blonde color, herbal, lemon, soap nose. Creamy lemon flavor with soap and herbs. Intersting herbal character, decently bitter finish. A bit medicinal, but nice drinking. Oily body.

jmgreenuk (5015) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2013
Tap at Borefts 2013. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is rich malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a nutty hoppy bitter crisp sharp palate. I didn’t dislike this beer but it’s a little metallic too and not too dissimilar to some other beers that have a similar style and have been marked down because of the brewer. Yes, it’s Narke and they are very very good, but this is nothing special.

jackl (4994) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Keg @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s light gold with a small white head. The nose is strong sweet herb garden and grass. The taste is very strong herbs, huge medicinal garden patch sweetness. Some honey and yeast. Very interesting, but a small pour is more than enough! The moosegrass dominates the taste. Not particularly balanced. Overall, a novel idea (sort of like a strong herbal tripel) that doesn’t quite come off.
