Sample at SMÖF 2011. It poured a dark brown-amber liquid. Smell of caramel, malt and spruce. The taste was very special and hard to describe. sweet malty with some candy and spruce. An unusual beer, but I liked it.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap@pikkis. Brown amber, hazy. Strangely herby spicy, a bit of funky notes. Cola- like flavours, pine needles. Earthy stuff. A lot of everything. For a spiced ale, ok. I like the slight funky things.

(Närke Gransus) Tap at Borefts ’15.
Dark mahogany brown colour on the body, small and thin off-white head on top, with average retention.
Herbal aromas, something like juniper berries but not quite exactly, wood.
Sweet taste with caramel, nuts, wood.
Thin body, low carbonation.
Soft and easy to drink, but nothing really special.
