3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Borefts 2012 // One of the more ’special’ Närke brews. Apparently moosegrass is the special herb that I was getting, I knew that this had to have some kind of Swedish unique herbs that I have never heard off but obviously couldn’t guess what it was. Is that even like eatable? Bright hazy golden with a decent neatly lacing white head. Smell is quite herbal, hard to pinpoint what, it is moosegrass apparantly but strong sharp vaguely familiar herb but you cannot pit your finger on. both sharp and sweeter qualities blended with some sweeter lemon. light sweet grains. Taste is as someone pointed out - indeed - huge jasmine,.sweet citrus, heavy herbal, yeast, spices, lemongrass and lemon zest. bitter in a spice way. Light easy to drink, one weird session beer, it such a weird flavor but works at the same time - hard to say what to do with this one....

(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20121125) The beer poured orange and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness, berries, hint of tartness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, caramell, berries, malts, hint of tartness, moss and quite low bitterness. Aftertaste had sweetness, spruce needles, moss and low bitterness. A very different brew but also a tasty one.
