Tap at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden. Aroma is complex, some hints of citrus and malt. Pours a perfect amber colour with a medium high head, thick foam. Taste is rich on the onset and leaves a bitter, excellent, taste as it goes down. I will never get tired of this beer.

On cask at Oliver Twist.
Dry hoped with much freshness. Not so bitter and dry as the normal on bottle or on tap.
Flavours are well balanced and overpowering. A near perfect summer ale.

Pure Amber color with a nice white head. Aroma is amzing, some mix of Belgians and American ones. Fruity, hoppy some malt. Flavor has some sweetness and bitter also some fruity, maybe berry ones. Mouthfeel is long with a soft bitterness. Awesome!!!!

Backlog. Tried on tap and bottled a number of times. Probably my all time favourite bitter/ESB, the only real competitor is Gustafs Finger from Dugges.

Can be served Chilled aswell as room temperature. The taste will be different but equally tasty. A taste of Grape wich gives it a fresh summer taste. Perfect in hot day.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 Beautiful orange colour. Semi hazy. Smells sweet and complex of malt, grapefruit hops and yeast (smells belgian). Hoppy taste. Booth malt and hops in the aftertaste. Bitter and refreshing. Body is a little thinn. Overall: One of the best swedish beers i’ve ever had.

Full taste, the real bitter taste comes like an sensation. Probably the best beer in Sweden on bottle. Have not tasted on tap, yet.

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.
