Franzen (380) - SWEDEN - APR 25, 2014
Butterscotch, nutty and caramel aroma with some tobaccoo. Amber clear colour. Heavy caramel in taste with low but sufficient bitterness. Medium body, semi dry low carbonation. An okay very caramelly ale

TychoJames (370) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2015
Flaska systembolaget. Mörkorange, kopparfärgad klar vätska med beiget skum. Blöt doft med malt och lite fruktsötma. Bitter och maltig smak med lite hö och bröd. Härligt bitter munkänsla

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2009
Aroma: lovely, fresh hops. Good, sweetish malt to back the hops up. Sourish, yeast, spices (cinnamon, seville orange, nutmeg), cocoa, just lovely.
Flavour: ah, delicious, sweet, malty, cookiedough, reasonable bitterness lingering with liquorice throughout the aftertaste. Slight notes of nutmeg and orange. Coffee in the after-aftertaste aswell as sap and pine.
Appearance: orange brown with beige-tan head
Palate: fluffy, a bit slimy, not particularly heavy, refreshing

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - APR 15, 2011
Amber with a beige head. Floral and malty nose. The aroma goes along the same line with some aditional grass and fruity notes. A good smooth alcohol warmth and a very crisp and nice bitterness in the end.

Bottle. Really nice aroma of some fruit and fresh hops. Taste is really bitter with lots of hops thrown in there. Really refreshing and well crafted beer.

Poured from bottle, clear amber with low off white head. Aroma with notes of caramel, toffee, dried fruit and some citrus. Taste is bitter sweet with a wonderful malt body and a slightly bitter finish. Notes of caramel, fruit, hard bread, grass and some citrus. Nice with easter food and on its own!

I det hav av bedrövlig och halvhjärtad påsköl (läs; dålig mörk lager) som dyker upp varje vår är det alltid lika glädjande när någon har förståndet att gömma ale i påskägget. En fördel är också om det är en bra sådan, som i det här fallet. Och som sig bör i sådana här tider frossar jag och låter någon annan sota för mina synder.

craftbeersweden (269) - SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2014
Easter ale from 2013. On the bottle it says: Best before august 2013.

Rubyred-orange beer that are a little hazy.
Two finger high, white, head that leaves lacing on the glass.

Nose: Caramel malt, dried fruit, mango, orange marmelade and oak.
Taste: Caramel, brown sugar, toffee, dark fruit, spices and malt.

I’m supriced this taste so good! Great nose and likewise taste! Best before seven months ago - I don’t think so! This is delicious!

I would say it’s even better now than when I tried it when it was fresh at easter 2013...

mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2008
Bottle - 2008 version. Pours a dark amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is mostly about the malts - lots of caramel/fudge, some dried fruits and a hint of warming spices. Flavour begins with roasted malty notes and a little sweetness . lots of caramel/fudge and some citrus fruit. Then the hops kicks in with a good amount of bitterness - you can feel the cascade - with notes of grapefruit zest. The finish is roasted and bitter.

Bottle at home. Pours a beautiful dark ruby colour with a good head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Good body with sweet taste of coffee with a more bitter finish of chocolate and a hint of licorice.
