3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aug ’14. A 0.33 l bottle from Systembolaget, Upplands Väsby. It poured hazy, deep copper body with small head. Very fine hoppy aroma, orange (obvious Amarillo) and herbal with rosemary. Flavor was rather simply bitter at first sip, then gets more sweet, especially towards the finish. A bit bready, too. Smooth, although still quite bitter mellows in the aftertaste with honey malts. Indeed, a pleasant and tasty, full bodied brew. More an IPA than APA. Well done.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm.
Dark golden, clear body, with a medium, quite stable, frothy, white head.
Aroma of citrus, floral, sweet berries, tropical fruits, resin, some pine, some grass, candy, biscuit.
Taste follows this pretty much.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes medium bitter, a bit dry, zesty, a bit grassy and also sweet malty.
Tasty! Straight, quaffable, greatly balanced and beautifully showcasing the Amarillo hop. A lovely, sessionable Pale Ale I am always enjoying a lot on my trips to Sweden!
