3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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).
