Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours a copper color with a mediumsized white head, som lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, resin, grass and caramel. Flavour of orange, lemon, resin, grapefruit and balancing caramely maltiness. Finish is bitter, but not brutal - somewhat mild for the style. Rather lively and fresh carbonation. Mediumbodied.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2010
Clear amber. Fruits, spices and caramel in flavour with a very bitter finish. This sample feeles like it’s got some strange off-recipie yeast to it. The flavours comes bbig in the beginning but fades off leaving the bitterness alone in the end, hence the ending feel quite one dimensional.

larsniclas (5529) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2010
Draught at 3smårum. Deep golden. Small white head. A lot of sweet toffee in the aroma. Big, grassy bitterness in the flavour mixed with salmiak.

Fungrim (52) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2010
First rating! Bottle. Off white, dense head. Amber drawing towards copper. Citrus, caramel and toast aroma. Very balanced nose, not too intense. Light sweetness, medium bitterness, borderline sour, some malt character coming through as well. Medium long finish, medium light body, rather smooth. Not the usual Nynäshamn house character, and slightly disappointing.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2010
Pours a clear orange-brown body with a medium off-white head. Aroma is delicious and intense, with honey, vanilla, wild strawberries and hints of peach. A real fruity hop bath for my nose. The taste does not, unfortunately, follow up so much, with only three thirds or so of the initial promises fulfilled. Some more flavors do arise, however, such as hay, grass and hints of licorice, which manages to save it somehow. The palate is the real problem with this one; thin and slightly watery compared to the otherwise rich and flavorful brew. With a couple more ABV percentages and a bit longer storage to boot, this beer could’ve reached Olympian heights. Instead, Dragets Kanal remains on the "very good, but not great" level. Try one if you can, though.

pilsnerrogge (2454) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2010
Bottled:
Pours dark amber with a mid-sized head. Malty toffee aroma with notes of dark fruits and cherries. Flavour is malty toffee and loads of hops. Well balanced and really good.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2010
Bottle. Clear copper colour. Low head. Tutti-frutti like ’2IPA’ nose. It’s nice but subtle or restrained. No phenols (tin, swimming pool, solvent, you name it) here like in many of Nynäs beers. Jellyish mouthfeel and really balanced flavourwise, meaning not too much of anything. Slight on the sweet side for a 2IPA, however I did not measure the FG - it feels slight sweet. Given the low ABV along with the somewhat sweet finish, the ’smack in the face’-Double-IPA is not just there. The hop flavour/bitterness does not kick in like it does in its American counterparts. Here we have a balanced Swedish variation of a 2IPA, some would say too balanced?

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2010
Bottle 25 cl. RBESG Rome 2010. Courtesy of rickgordon. Clear amber golden with a dense and lacing off-white head. Intense, fat and peachy hop aroma. Quite full-bodied, fruit and caramel with loads of peachy hops. Not overly bitter but very well balanced. 060610
