3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan in Stockholm. The pour is a tea amber with a thinning, bubble head. Pretty weak sauce. Aroma is tawny port, old rust, cellar, meaty. Wow- very nice. Taste is sweet, malty, thin, basic, nothing really interesting, maybe some butter. Suddy, thin, watery palate. I thought for a second we were in for the best bitter in the world. What a let down :(

An American-hopped red ale with an aroma and flavor of cara malt, gum, cedar, red apple and fruit candies. Medium body, moderate bitterness and medium to high sweetness with a lot of residual sugars suggest it’s not fully attenuated (also noticed in the latest batch of Lava). Lightly hazed amber, from bottle best by August 2014 at K Bar in Reykjavik.
