3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Bishops ARms in Örebro. Fruity and yeasty smell, feels belgo. A note of smoke. Sweet taste with quite a high residual sweetness, also caramel. Hard to put a type on this beer, doesn’t feel like an IPA, more like a dark belgian. Not quite a bruin either.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap sample @ Haand Festival 2013. Light copper-hued body, small white head. Nose is nutty malts, red berries and hints of oranges and grass. Taste is sweet nuts, caramel, almonds, grains, grass, hints of peaches and resin. Low on bitter/sweetness integration; the two feels as if standing side by side rather than being integrated features of the beer. Also, it does taste a bit...strange, in search of a better term. Full body, medium carbonation. OK, but far from the best Närke can do.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at SOPP 2008, Helsinki. Golden color with small head. Refreshing aroma with fair amount of lemony and raisiny hops. Bittersweet flavor with strong lemony and grapefruity hop character. Dry, chewy and bitter finish. Pleasant, drinkable and moreish, but there could be more hop complexity.

On tap at Haand ølfestival. Clear copper coloured with an off-white head. Moderate hoppy and fruity aroma agains a solid malty caramel background. Moderate sweet with a nice fruitiness and a balanced bitterness. Certainly a decent IPA, but not a favourite. (2013-05-25)
