(Draught at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, 20130313) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized, dense and white. Aroma had fruitiness, citricness and pine. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, pine, grass, malts, white bread and bitterness. Afteraste was hoppy and bitter. A tasty low ABV pale ale. Good aroma and especially pleasant aftertaste. Put this in bottles and ship to Finnish supermarkets, please.

In short: Some kind of cranked-up ESB-ish beer. I love beers like this
How: Tap at The Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm (apparently exclusive to this location)
The look: Clear golden body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Nose has a lot of inviting English style leafy hops with also notes of tobacco and nice toasted notes. Taste is foamy caramelized malts, like sponge cake melting in your mouth. Also fresh bakery bread crust. And then a whole lot of leafy hops bringing cold iced-tea and tree leafs flavors. Mild bitterness, just enough to balance out the malts light sweetness. Very soft carbonation, almost cask-like which I found very fitting for this beer. This tasted like some kind of cranked up classic ESB, I love beers like this, a nice change of pace from the usual American style hoppy beers. I’m gonna go against the grain here and give this unpretentious session beer a very high score, I thought it was great, also giving the highest rating on a beer makes me feel like I won.

adnielsen (9659) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Tap @ Bishops Arm Stockholm. Clear dark appearance with a foamy, light brown head that has great lacing. Spicy, rye, piney, earthy aroma. Fairly toasty malty, earthy/herbal, bitter hoppy, somewhat spicy flavor with a mildly dry, bitter finish. Some nice flavors going on and honestly, I can’t tell if it actually has rye in it or if I’m just getting some spiciness from the hops. I picked this beer randomly from the tap list and didn’t even know it was a Narke until now.

VsXsV (2601) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2012
Draught at BA Folkkungagatan. Almost clear, amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma is fruity but quite laid back with notes of grapefruit, herbal hops, caramel, citrus, red/black berries, lemongrass and biscuits. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with some fruity hop action and some biscuits. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Really drinkable and thirst quenching. At first it seemed a bit boring but it really fills it purpose well: A sessionable (well, almost considering the ABV) beer that still tastes great.

Svesse (6716) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2012
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 5 April 2012) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit, orange peel and floral hops. Malty, fruity taste with grapefruit, orange peel, dried apricots and a fresh floral, citric bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Medium body. Refreshing, tasty and quite nice.

Mad_Ferret (706) - SWEDEN - APR 6, 2012
Draught @ Bishops Folkis. Clear amber except from a slight mist, short off white creamy frothy head that leaves thick lacings. Aroma: Soft fruity with mandarin, oranges, apricot and a hint of apple. A bit creamy with a firm maltiness of crisp bread and caramel, pine and flowers. Taste: A bit dry with moderate sweetness, caramel, orange peel, apricot, rowan berries, astringent piney woody bitterness. Medium to lighter body with soft tickling carbonation. Very easy drinking and a bit ry with a gentle fruitiness and a marked piney bitterness that retreats just in time.
