3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, alc. 5.6%
Nut brown, small creamy off-white head, some lace. Flowery hoppy nose. Honeyish, Cascade hops are evident in the flavor. Medium-bodied hoppy, like drinking hoppy British bitter. Smoke is quite weakly underlying there. "Svensköl" is very misleading name :)

Keg @ Akkkurat, Stockholm 9 September 2005
Nice subdued smokey aroma. Quite full bodied with licorice, dark fruits and chocolate flavour. I think this beer is still under development from this small brewer and changes from batch to batch. Still, it’s a very nice and well balanced brew with a good hoppy/smokey aftertaste. Me like.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly artificial but pleasant citric nose - like a soda popsicle.
Citric fruit center, a bit spice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
An opaque brown beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is of roasted bread, prunes, and chocolate - and so is the flavor, but the body is thin.
