ekstedt (5215) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2011
Draught at SMÖF 2011. Clear copper, medium beige head. Fruity and caramelly with some odd spicy notes with vague pine needles character. Medium bodied and smooth. Semi dry with medium bitterness. This was the "gold foam" winner at SMÖF 2011 which I find very odd.

laiti (4949) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Draught @ Pikkulintu
Aroma is sweet with caramel, toffee and some odd grainy tones. Flavour has lots of sweet caramel, toffee and distant herbal notes. Like a tikkunekku in liquid form. Wouldn’t have been able to recognize the spruce shots without knowing. Too sweet and sticky, even this 25cl is too much.

Sigmund (4820) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2012
On tap at HaandBryggeriet Beer Festival, Drammen. Deep orange to red colour, moderate off-white head. Moderate aroma of spruce, hints of dust. Medium sweet flavour, distinct notes of spruce twigs, reminds me of Alba (Williams Brothers / Heather Ales). Interesting beer!

SaintMatty (4743) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2011
Cask (Bishops Arms, Folkungagatan, Stockholm) - Dark brown with red tinges. Pine needles, caramel and dried fruit in the aroma. The taste is very interesting with notes of spruce, dried fruit and nuts. Interesting and enjoyable.

OleR (4609) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2012
From tap @Haand ØlFestival 2012. Dark golden, low blond head. Gently sweet and rounded. The spruce blend well in both in aroma and flavor. Red fruits and mild bitter and herbal tones. Succulent texture. Soft in the mouth. A very nice one.

On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. Clear amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, light caramel, fruity hops and pine. Flavor is soft malty, caramel, pleasant bitterness, fruit and pine. It actually gives me some feeling of forest in the flavor. Medium body. Very nice and balanced.
