esox (1172) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2009
Deep ruby red beer with a creamy but quite thin head.The aroma has plenty of english hops, herbs and sweetness of dried fruits. Dryish malts, some caramel and a hint of toffy in the middle. Herbal hops, dried fruits and woody bitterness in the finish. I noticed some ash in the finish too. The palate is medium bodied and quite bitter. Well balanced.

olsvammel (3934) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2012 Bottle (50 cl). Appearance: 3/5 Clear amber liquid with a dirty white head that left chunks of foam on the side of the glass. Smell: 6/10 Fruity, caramel, malt, citrus, some oranges and a hint of metal. Taste: 6/10 Caramel, malt and some fruits. Mild, fruity and fairly easy to drink,. This beer worked well with the salty and fat Easter food last year and I got a feeling it will be just as good this year as well. Re-rated during 2012: This version is allot better then previous versions.
