My first review so I used the ’ole standards. Honestly enjoyed the beer. It goes down easy, it’s fairly common/easy to find, damn good with a cigarette. Outside of that it’s got a good woodsy feel and taste about, unfortunately I probably wouldn’t take it camping with me. Not manly enough in taste. Actually the taste comes across as a bit contrived, less outdoorsman more mythical Narnia - with all the childish trappings. Love the bottle and pretty ornamental decorations. Ornamental decorations are what you need on a beer like this, it’s a statement. The beer is saying yeah I’m ornamental and maybe not as woodsy as I should be but that’s the taste. It’s unabashed and therefore just like a Blue Moon it’s a perfect guilty pleasure. Finally... I think I’ll have another. Hope this helped, and happy drinking! I look forward to writing more reviews and hopefully becoming more knowledgeable in the timeless are of beer guzzling. Cheers!

@ Basunen 15-3-28: ganska klen doft av söt malt och smör. Smaken är även den ganska diskret. Ölen har en mycket trevlig och fyllig munkänsla men det är en ganska diskret bira.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pour is clear, deep amber with a thin, lingering head leaving a little lacing. Aroma is malt and fruity. Taste is crisp with a malty beginning and middle with a hint of hops in the finish. Fruity subtext is present throughout. Overall, this one lives up to the hype for me. A clean, refreshing beer with a complex flavor.

Flaska från SB. Riktigt snygg etikett. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, bröd, smör och torkad frukt. Trött i smakerna, saknar fruktighet och kropp, stor sötma, lätt maltbeska

Pours a light, amber color with very little head retention and lacing. Has no particular aroma, but smells of malt and slightly sweet. Tastes malty and sweet, not bitter or hoppy at all. A decent beer at best.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nah not for me, not much aroma, almost Belgian like with yeast and bread notes in aroma and flavor, both dominate, fine for some styles but nit this one.

355 ml bottle. Pours a clear, golden amber with a small off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with caramel and bread. Sweet malty flavour with caramel, a hint of fruit and a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

Aroma is super sweet, with caramel and bread notes up front. The taste is creamy and soft, and you get those amber ale notes that I’m not that fond of. The aftertaste is slightly bitter. Lovely design on the can. Regardless, it is a very balanced beer, and if you like amber ale’s, go for it!
