3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 One of the best Swedes available at Systembolaget. Pours light amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma is hoppy and clearly amarillo. Lots of pine, citrus, grass, tropical fruits and with a clear pungent touch. Taste is bitter from start to finish. This is not a very complex beer - but then again it never pretended to be. It’s straightforward hoppy goodness, with loads of amarillo from start to dry hopped finish. And that finish is looong, and bitter. Body is light with fairly soft carbonation. This is a great beer, from start to finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Light amber color, frothy and lacy head. Hoppy aroma has citrus fruits, piney resins, dried apricots, kiwi, and floral honey notes. Some sweetish maltiness comes through, propably from wheat malts. Bitter taste, quite strudy maltiness is quite round. Medium sweet. Bitterish finish is slightly too round and "heavy", propably due to wheat malts. Now the hops are slightly masked. Soft, smooth palate, medium body.
