On tap at Den Tatoverede Enke. Brown reddish in colour with a medium sized head. Now this is really yummy. Really wellbalanced with a nice complexity. Refreshing and powerfull in both aroma and flavour at the same time.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2007 (Draught, Rover - Göteborg, may 2006)
The beer has a big, light and fluffy head. Dark red amber-coloured liquid.
It smells like butter,
and soft shampoo. Banana-candy. Hazelnut. Malt. Unsweetened plum. Raspberry.
The taste is creamy, medium body. Finished with unsweetened plum and a big bitterness. A bit salty. Unique in it´s style.Second try: Lovely aroma of raspberries, lemon/grapefruit with a light floral sting. Tiny roasted. Notes of plums. Very clean flavour with flowers, some chocolate and caramel with hints of raspberries. Medium body. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm) Colour is dark brown, mahogany, with a firm frothy head. Nose is mainly malty, with caramel and some suppressed hoppy notes. Taste is malty, with caramel, hints of dried fruit (apricots, prunes) and a nice fresh, hoppy taste throughout. The hops are more evident in the taste than in the nose. Very nice and refreshing. Probably the least complex of the Närke brews, but one helluva "mainstream" ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slight gushing to pinkish-yellowish, absurdely huge head over clear deep amber-foxy beer. Woody, chocolate but also solvent, and a good dose of it. Noble hops seeping through. Wry, tannine-rich and well-hopped very dry bitter. Good hops, giving as much flavour as bitterness. Very vague background caramel. Dry-out effect, severe, not much body, OTOH thirstquenching. Good ESB, bit severe, but rather drinkable all the same; thanks to the Scandinavian crew.
