3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on October 11, 2013.
Didn’t take notes really, more sat back and sampled this one.
Strikes me as sort of oddish, didn’t know anything about it, other than the name and that it was from Närke.
Clear brown to dark brown color, off-white head. Scent is a mix of vegeteables, herbs, something light toasted. Taste comes through as a malt and herb with vegetable mix, also with some toasty notes again. Medium to spritzy mouthfeel, medium to medium low bitterness. Though with a bite to the end, perhaps from the malt being a bit harsh. Not sure if I like it or not, perhaps I just don’t understand it? Unusual it is though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at HaandFestival 2012. It serves a pale amber body topped by a dense, beige head. Herbal, lightly nutty aroma with caramel. Pleasant but a bit dull I think. The same can be said of the flavor, with caramel and some roasted hints, some bitterness and a little hint of raisins. Medium to full body, soft on the palate, finishing with some bitterness. A beer that should have some more punch in both aroma and flavor, it’s too anonymous as it is now. 120504
