fiulijn (16214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2009
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm
Hazy copper color; big head. Strong fruity aroma (oranges, some mango), but there is also a pleasant, light cheesy presence. Full bodied, there is a strong caramel and toffee flavor, quite sweet; but the most interesting side of this beer is a earthy, rural character, reminding the manure side in English Golden Ales, that pairs with the cheesy aroma; it has a strong bitterness, with a very good fruity component (bitter oranges), but also mild resins.
Every element is clear, strong, but never overwhelming the others.
A balanced, complex Double IPA with an edge more. Wonderful.

sebletitje (7492) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2009
drat @ Tre Små Rum pours copper, white head. Aroma and taste, seemed to have some burn/smoke elements, and good dose of hops giving some citric/fruity notes and some malts that remained a little muted.

olsvammel (3949) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2009
It poured a clear golden liquid with a medium sized foam that left a nice lacing. The aroma was filled with grassy hops. The flavor was fresh, with allot of grassy hops, a medium bitternes and some grapefruit.

Served very cold, but we let it warm up for quite a while. Aroma of elastoplast and dead chicken (or simply a butchers). Massively elastoplasty taste. (It was hoppier cold, says Anna, I didn’t taste it cold.) Covers 7.5% very well. The phenols are a bit harsh. I’m not getting clear hops as such, as the chemical burn dominates. Maybe that burn is from the hops. Sipped mjs’s cold one later - massive pineapple aroma.

(A new batch - draught at Pikkulintu, Helsinki, on 2009-06-27) Amber and lightly hazy. Small white head. Pineapple and hops in aroma. Medium bodied and bit dry palate. Malts, fruitiness, grass, yeas, sweetness, plaster(!) and bitterness in taste. Bitter and malty aftertaste.

Svesse (6856) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2009
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 12 June 2009) Pale amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of apricots, orange peel and caramel. Malty, fruity taste with orange, apricots, caramel and lots of earthy, citrussy hops in a long, bitter finish. More than medium body, fairly sweet. Great balance. Yet another lovely, hoppy beer from Närke. Brilliant.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2009
On-tap. The Rover. Gothenburg. Orange colour with an off-white head. The aroma feels a little weak. Taste of hops, grape, sweet fruit, caramel malt. Creamy and medium bodied. Unfortunately it has a light smokiness that lowers the score a bit.
