Cask @ Akkurat, Stockholm Jan 13 2005
A completely different brew. Aroma so full of flowery hops (Fuggles?). Full bodied malty taste with flowery hops and a cereal finish. Great one!

Brown ruby color, off-white creamy head. Hops, barley and yeast in the nose. Toffeeish and hoppy with grassy notes. Well-balanced. I don’t know if this really is brown ale.

Draft at Stockholm Beer Festival. Clear brown with sparse cream-couloured head. Roasted malts and american hops dominate the aroma, and this impression carries on into the flavour together with notes of honey.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2007 Draught at Glenfiddich Warehouse, 68, Stockholm. This is a review of the latest btach (served in April 2007).Pours out in a hazy brown colour topped with a rich and sticky white head. Huge hoppy aroma, not piney or grassy, just the Nynäshamns trademark hoppiness of cedar-wood and grapefruit-peels with malty notes of roasted malts and spun sugar just to balance things out. Medium bodied with strong hoppy and bitter notes of cedar-wood and lemon-peels. Hints of milky chocolate. Long dryish finish of toasted malts, wood, grapefruit and gun-smoke. Probably one of the most unbalanced brown ale I’ve sampled but the the flavours and the hops is really tasty. Old rating 3.4.
