4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Not so pale imppression as the name, fullbodied with lots of bitter aromas and taste. A bit too strong though to fit as an I.P.A. Maybe it´s a Swedish Pale Ale?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: The smell is mostly citric fruits and flowers, a bit of dried grass and a malty sweetness, but also some bananas and spices.
Appearance: A deep gold beer with a off-white head leaving some lacing.
Taste: Tasting mostly of bitter notes from the hops, but also some raisin-like sweetness. A belgian yeast vibe from this keg.
Palate: Medium carbonation, a soft texture. A medium body with a somewhat dry finish.
Overall: A very nice sipping beer full of nice floral and fruity smells.
Note: On-tap at a De Klomp tasting. Reviewed 2013-01-19.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 Ar: Grass, straw, hay, yeast, almost Belgian in style, spices, no obvious hoppiness, this is all wrong for an IPA
Ap: amber colour, creamy White head, lots of lacing.
F: low skunky bitterness, metallic, weird yeastiness, herbs, hay, spices, this tastes all wrong, I can’t believe that a quality brewery like Nynäshamn meant for it to taste like this. Warming finish.
T: I don’t think this beer is right.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smells really not a lot, does not taste so much. The aftertaste was not so much. The aftertaste tasted sausage sadly. Still disappointed by this brewery.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange nästan kopparfärgad öl med livligt skum. Doft av grape-beska med en viss maltsötma. Även i smaken så dominerar beskan över sötman. Men ändå väldigt drickvänlig.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Ardbeg Embassy, Stockholm. Hazy, light orange liquid with firm medium to big off-white head. Aroma of flowers, earthy hops, British yeast esters (bubble gum, banana), butterscotch, biscuit, red berries, citrus, biscuit and grain. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of earth, british yeast and grain. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Decent, quite British in style but that appears to be the objective with this beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange color with a white head. Sweet fruit hop aromas to begin with, particularly mango. A nice citrus peel aroma, mild floral notes, and a fair amount of bread. Some grass in there, too. The flavor is lightly bitter and fairly dry. Cracker malt with a slight bread sweetness. Mild fruit from the hops and a bit more grass than expected. Lightly bitter with a hint of pine and orange peel.
