3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Hazy murky brown liquid with medium to big off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, gale, dark fruit, bubblegum and earth. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of knäckebröd, toffee and gale. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice stuff. The gale worked better than I thought it would. Very balanced.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
BBF. Pours amber with not much head. The "No Aroma Hop" smell showed and it wasn’t pleasant. Smells like tons of malt tones like biscuit, grain, cereal, and sweet stuff. Taste is similar with molasses, malt, and candy dominating. No thanks.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. Deep Amber pour with an off white head. A unique medicinal nose. Smooth with lots of malt characteristics that are offset by the medicinal notes. Interesting with a good mouthfeel.

Draught. Hazy dark brown, slightly reddish beer. Thin off-white, creamy head. Strong herbal nose, close to rosemary, some green tea. Berryish notes, a hint of fresh tangerine. Dryish and round, bready maltiness, slightly acidic berries, maybe a touch of caramel. Quite strong herbal bitterness and woodiness in the finish. Medium body, surprisingly fresh. Quite nice.

Clear mahogany brown. Very aromatic. Lots of Gale in the flavour. The overall sweetness makes this reasonably palatable.
