2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (thanx to joss!): Light amber coloured, not really clear, small off-white lacy foamy layer, aromatic hops in the slightly skunky caramelly-fruity nose; quite dry bitter-sweet flavour, pretty light bodied; lingering malty-fruity and dry citric-hopy finish. Quite O.K. ,but a bit too slim...

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: The smell is fruity, pears and apples, some sweet bread-like nuances, nuts and almonds.
Appearance: A deep amber clear beer, with an off-white small head that leaves little lacing. Small curtains.
Taste: The taste starts with brown bread then fruity, bitter orange marmalade with a sweet caramel sugar taste. Well-balanced and a long remaining bitterness.
Palate: The carbonation is low, a refreshing texture, and a nice dry finish.
Overall: This is a really good bitter, and even better on cask.
Note: Cask at H&H.. Reviewed 2012-08-25.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2012 dark brown color, aroma of sweetish malts. Herbs, maybe.Very nice bitter (duh..) taste backed by medium body.Herbs on the taste too. A bit watery in the end, no suprise there, cosidering the low alchohol content.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some fruitiness, some citrus – grassy hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light fruitiness and light caramel, some citrus - grassy hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, faint caramel and some grassy hoppyness. OK bitterness for bitter - not too sweet/not too much caramel. Too thin-bodied considering the bitterness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Systembolaget.
Pours orange with a white head.
Hops, hay and malt hits the nose.
Pretty much the same in taste but not that bitter as I’d expect. Light body and average carbonation. Perhaps a bit too thin but the low ABV might explain that.
Paired ok with grilled veggies,

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange öl med medelstort vitt skum. Dofter av citrus, apelsin och russin. Samma i smaken. En aning högre beska och den hade fått ett ännu högre betyg.
