tlind2 (1094) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 31, 2009
500 ml bottle. Copper color, tan head. Hoppy aroma with some chocolate. Notably bitter flavor with plenty of hops and unsweetened chocolate in the background. Medium body, medium carbonation. Definitely not what I expected from an easter ale -- a pleasant surprise.

NordicV (1090) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2012
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.

Linnet (1088) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2009 Creamy medium head, off-white. colour is copper. Lots of lacing. Smell is delightfully hoppy, fruity citrus, grass, straw. Flavour is also is also hoppy and nicely balanced with malts. It has a very apealing finishing bite. It lacks a bit of body for the highest marks, but the flavour is there. outhfeel is nice, small bubbles and the liquid is a bit sticky, this is a great easter ale! Serving type: bottle

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Bottled. Dark copper, fluffy beige head. Good dark nutty aroma with quite strong herbal hops and toffee, even chocolate. Flavor is more of the same, nice hops (grass & some pine), nuttiness, little wood and cocoa, nicely balanced. Lingering herbal bitterness. Really smooth silky palate, perfect for the style. A great ESB, this one makes my easter alright.

esox (1014) - 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.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2006
Bottle
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 :-)

GandGKevin (917) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2011
A gift from visitors to the store. Thanks! Sweet malty aromas. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Caramel, cereal, and nutty flavors with a nice hop balance. Overall an excellent English Strong Ale.

On tap at Nya Tröls. Primarily caramelly with a hint of hoppiness, not one of their best.
