tap @ Bishops Arms, Västerås. Pours clear dark ruby brown with small off white head leaving nice lace. Heavy of roasted malts, nice slight coffee and chocolate aroma with hints of caramel. Flavor is roasted malts, sweet caramel, fruity perry, crispy and a bit acidy. Finishes somewhat acidy sourish fruity and bitter tart.

Draft at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden. Aroma has a lot of caramel and a little hoppy floral notes. Poured a dark amber, brownish, colour with a thick white foam, very creamy. Taste is sweet and a little bitter and spicy, very drinkable. Feels light bodied but very pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear redish brown with a compact dirt white head that sticks pretty good to the glass.
Bready and a bit spicy aroma with some wilted weeds and citrus. Pommerans and clove.
A bit burnt butterscotch in the taste with a moderate sweetness. Bready taste with some citrus and apple (?) and a certain spiciness. A bit watery in the middle. Dry bitter ending.
Body is a bit thin with low carbonation and small bubbles.
Easy drinking and quite tasty but a bit too thin and forgettable.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2011 Draught. Reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma nuts, spices, fruit. Taste: fruit, nuts, perhaps oranges and citrus, maybe berries, the usual Nynäshamn spiciness, low bitterness. Medium-bodied, medium to lively carbonation. Works, but not among the best in the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, light copper red, with a brownish hue, and a light, creamy white head. A bit too light on the Brown Ale scale. The nose is quite hoppy, with hints of yeast (Belgo?) and smoke/ashes, against a fruity, malty background comprising roasted notes and faint hints of toffee. Medium bodied, off-dry, rather fruity, with a balanced bitterness. Again, rosted malt, vague hints of toffee, on the hoppy side, yeast aromas return. Judged as a Brown Ale, it is a bit too light in both colour and body, and lacks the heavy fruitiness and the toffee/caramel notes. As a beer in general, it’s quite enjoyable. (Rated on 2010-08-19)

Lovely amber, fruity beer, way beyond most brown ale. A little sourness, reminding me of al Altbier. Nice stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nut brown body, white head. Nicely balanced malts and american hops, nutty. Round roasted flavour with smooth malt and hops. Very good brown ale for a guy that doesn’t usually like brown ales.

200ml, draught at The Rover where it was served nicely chilled. Deep, amber-brown coloured, decent off-white head. Modest smell of mid-sweet, dark malts. Dark malts in flavour offset by moderate fruity tartness. Well balance and easy to drink (Göteborg, 03.08.2010).
