0.5 L bottle, purchased @Systembolaget, Norstan. A layer of sand-colored fish-eyes, resting upon a clear reddish-brown body. Fine, discreet aroma of biscuity. light toasted malts. Some fruit-cake fruitiness and a whiff of dusty hops. Light malt body. Balanced, evenly sweet and hop bitter flavor. Unsweetened caramelly malts, and a lightly spiced and gentle citrus fruity hop bitterness. A light hop linger in the finish. A very well-crafted one.

olsvammel (3452) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2011
Sample at SMÖF 2011. It poured a clear dark brown liquid. Smell and taste of dark malts and chocolate. Nice and easy to drink, but I got a feeling I would grow tired if I had a full 50 cl glas.

sebletitje (6859) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2011
50cl bottle, courtesy of and shared with Gnoff. Ambrée, col beige. Arôme levure et cave avec un petit côté végétal d’asperge. Bizarre mais je n’ai pas trouvé un indice de cascade. En bouche, malté et grillée, pointe de levure avec un petit qcq chose de différent. Douce allant presque sur une stout dans le style anglais, léger note de malt sucré et léger fruit. Bouteille semble être mauvaise car je ne trouve pas là le profile annoncé.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2011
Cask at The Green Lion Inn, Malmö
Dark amber color, no head, basically flat. It has a nice aroma, biscuity, with malt, light vegetables, some yeast. Soft mouthfeel, it has a round body, and caramel flavor, rather salty; good bitterness level, with a nutty final.
Good.
