3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Malmø Brygghus Festival for small independent Swedish breweries. Hazy red amber with a small but persistent off-white head. Quite odd sweet toasted aroma of caramel, sweet berries, spruce, toffee, spicy, herbal notes. Medium bodied, semi-dry medium bitter finish. Very interesting, but a tad too sweet for my palate.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask, småbryggeriernas beer festival, Malmö. Clear orange-red coloured, with a small off-white head. Sweet caramels on the nose. Tastes like the caramels called the king of Denmark, sweet rapberries, tree sap and with a little herbal bitterness. Odd to come to termes with but after a few sips not as sweet anymore and a experiment that really worked.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Fresh as a spring forest, sweet as candy - and well balnced as a really good beer. Notes of grass, cranberries and campari. Very refreshing, yet without that certain hop bitterness. Highly drinkable. Unique.
