3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear reddish copper with a mediocre white head. Aroma is very grassy and fruity - Amarillo hops are strongly present and bring citrus fruitiness. Taste is bitter, crisp and fruity. Citrus features with some grassy and floral hoppy notes. Light to medium bodied, slick mouthfeel, excellent drinkability. Hoppiness is quite strong. Nice, simple but rich taste: good Swedish take on the American Pale Ale style.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On two at The Bishop Arms Vasagatan, pours a hazy vibrant orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, metallic notes, and some floral notes -- a bit of a syrupy, metallic quality to it. Flavour is very rich and round for a pale ale, with notes of floral hops, dry caramely biscuity malts, and some woody notes. Very round and full-bodied for a pale ale. Exceedingly drinkable and well-balanced. Great stuff.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A beautiful copper colour and creamy head that lasts. Slight aroma of hops. Nicely ballanced taste with hint of citrus but enough sweetness. The finish is bitter but not overpowering. This beer is always in the fridge at home.
