2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at The Rover, shared with larsniclas. Hazy orange/amber color, some yeast in the beer. Offwhite head. Fruity, yeasty aroma, some hops. Hoppy, grassy, metallic flavor, lots of flavors to be a 3,5, but a bit too onedimensional to really please me.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Hazy amber colour, big off-white head. Aroma is very fruity, grassy and flowery hoppy. Flavour is the same along with mild hints of bread and caramel malts. Still abit empty, but excellent for being only 3.4%.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light copper-orange color, huge off-white head. Strong ashy and fruity hoppy aroma. Quite typical Ölands brew: lots of tasty hops, less on malt side (although this one is perhaps a bit maltier than many others from brewery). Super for being only 3.4%. English type tasty bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2007 (Bottle, thanks to omhper) Pours light hazy amber. Yeasty and floral aroma with some spicy and orange peel like notes. Hoppy, citrusy and floral flavour with a perfumey, grapefruity bitterness. A bit doughy mouthfeel. Lingering afterbitterness. Medium body. Second try: (Bottle) Pours light hazy reddish brown amber. The aroma hold hops up from with citric tones of lemon, oranges and grapefruit. The flavour is spicy with lemon and grapefruit tones. Soft but dry mouthfeel. Medium bitter with an ok malty backdrop. Light to medium bodied.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Orange colour, big fluffy head. Funky aroma, reminiscent of T’IJ. Dough, bit sour, oranges etc. Bit of swimmingpool flavour from the hops(?) and perfumy. Good long balanced bitterness. Wonderful yeast character and fantastic beer at 3,5!!!

(50 cl bottle, thanks Marsiblursi!) Shady orange color, big lasting fluffy white head. Hoppy fruity a bit yeasty scent. Hoppy bitter taste. Medium mouthfeel, rather high bitterness. Hoppy aftertaste. One of the best "folköl" I’ve had.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Cloudy orange red apperance with a rich white head. Strong hoppy aroma of grass, soil, orange-peels and herbs. Thin flavour with a very light body. Bitter dryish notes of grass and soil with no malty sweetness to be found. Light bodied. Grassy and soily hops in the bitter finish. It’s better than your avarage Folköl-.
