3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ruby red, with a nice roasted aroma. Maybe some smokiness. The hops are in a good balance giving a bitterness and a taste that is great for a beer like this.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Low on CO2, it has got a big head that vanish quickly. Body is light rusty coloured. The aroma is caramel, nuts, resin with a good blend of citrus and grape. The english hops are very well balanced with the american hops. And the malty backbone of caramel malt fits right in. Really good for beeing a swedish easterbeer.
