On tap at Akkurat in May 2011.
Dark amber with a small white head. Rather good but with some strange things in the taste, like some weak notes of smoke. Easy to drink I must say.

From a bottle into a Närke tulip at the brewery with Hans.
This beer pours a medium copper light amber hint, medium tope head with good carbonation, nice lacing...The aroma is a malty to start sweet molasses with a little hop finish...Taste brings out more of the hops, medium hop start to finish, losses a lot of the malt...Really nice full and thick feel, easy to drink.
This is better than your average English IPA, I’d try this if given the chance.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at ÖBWF 2009. Clear dark golden-caramell liquid with a very small white foam that left no lacing. Smell of caramell and something funky that I relate to toilette.Medium smooth mouthfeel. Light body, low bitterness. Taste of caramell. I had the original version a while back and loved it, but this one didn’t even come close.
Earlier Rating: 4/30/2009 Total Score: 4.2
Draught at Akkurat (Stockholm). It hada clar dark golden liquid with a really nice mountain of foam on the top which left allot of lacing. It smelled of bread and malt. The taste had some bread in it at first but then the grassy hops with hints of grapefruit took over. At the end there was a bitterness that had a bite to it. A very good beer.
