Mörkt bärnstensfärgad öl med smutsvitt normalt skum. En fruktig doft med inslag av karamell. Lätt humlebeska. Mer beska i smaken. Citrus och lite tallbarr. Balanseras på ett bra sätt av en honungssötma. Bästa svenska påskölet jag smakat i år.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, medium head with good lacing. First impresion is loads of flowery hops. That developes into a more sweet maltiness with some tannies and coffee notes.Full bodied with some coffee like bitterness for finish. Unusual Swedish easter beer. Reminds me of an English strong ale from a micro wanting to be American. Somewhat unbalanced though. Needs a bit more sweetness. Smother as a real ale, I would like to hope :-)

Brown and fragrant. small head. Rough bitter taste with lots of maltiness and hops. Hints of yeast, figs and prunes. Didn’t go well with the pasta dish I tried it first with, but was excellent on its own. Sparsely carbonated. Puts a golden frame to the moment.
