Draught (Bishops Arms, Vasagatan, Stockholm) - Amber with a slight haze and a foamy head. Very enticing aroma with notes of pine, toffee, grapefruit and peaches in syrup. Tangy and rather bitter taste with peach, grapefruit and toffee. Hoppy and bitter, yet not excessively so. Tasty and very enjoyable.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2011 Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a beautiful golden honey with a large fluffy off-white head. Flavour is just bursting with all variations of fruit, topped off with some pine on an underlying layer of lightly sweet cookies. Nice bitterness that stays around for a while. Extremely drinkable!

GT2 (8444) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 12, 2011
Tap at Oliver Twist in Stockholm. The pour is a hazy orange with a thin, white head. But somehow this leaves sheets of sticky lace. Aroma is kumquat, sugar, birthday cake, jackfruit. Taste is fruity, sharp, sweet, melon heavy. Palate is full, fruity, oily. Refreshing. Very nice!

rlgk (10655) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2011
Draught at the Rover. Somewhat hazy golden with a nice steady lasting head. Complex aroma with milk, citrus, grass, metal, perfume, apricot notes, pine needles and grape fruit. Citrus flavor, milky, malty but also grassy, with perfume and grape fruit. Long nice bitter flavor. This beer must have a recipe from a tall homebrewer.

Svesse (6159) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2011
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 30 March 2011) Pale amber colour, slightly hazy, with lasting off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of grapefruit, passion fruit and apricots. Fruity, malty taste with grapefruit, orange peel, marmalade, passion fruit and generous doses of fresh, citric hops in the finish. Solid malt foundation to match the bitterness. More than medium body, slightly sweetish. Very tasty and refreshing beer. Quite excellent!

omhper (19382) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2011
Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm. Hazy amber/golden, creamy head. Lovely concentrated aroma of black currant sorbet. Mid sweet with medium-full body. Fruity with clean mouthfeel, Loads of sweaty black currant hops, balanced bitterness. The aroma is absolutely mindblowing, but I would like to see it softer.

LoFi (1593) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2011 Draught, March 2011. Hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma: fresh hoppiness with citrus and tropical fruits. More of the same in the taste, with a nice maltiness and some toffee. Not very bitter. Medium-bodied. Nice. 8/4/8/3/15=3.8
Bottle, August 2011. Slightly hazy dark orange with a creamy white head. Aroma: really hoppy with peaches, also a slightly burnt tone. Taste: juicy hoppiness of peaches, pineapple, grapefruit, balanced by a caramel maltiness. Above medium-bodied, medium carbonation. Definitely better than the early draught version, raising my rating.
