HULK777 (499) - - APR 12, 2014
Beautiful easter ale. Massive caramel aroma, containing "knäck", toffee, nuts, and syrup. Frutiness also, and marzipan. Berries. Taste of toast bread, toffee, bread baked with syrup, and fruit. Nice mild bitterness at the end.

7stern (486) - Bromma, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2012
Dark amber, little hazy, small white head. Caramel and malt aroma. Malt sweetness apparent in the taste, some bread and sufficient bitterness. Good easter beer, but wasn’t it better last year?

Den känns lite tunn kanske, men totalt sett en trevlig upplevelse. Funkar bra till "påskmat".

Bottle. Dark amber with white head. Nice fruit and bitterness. Grass, sweet. A bit metallic. A bit of perfume? Good balance.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2009
Serving date: 2009-03-25. Dark amber with brown hues. Somewhat cloudy. Slightly beige and uneven but thick head. Small lacings. An interesting but not that powerful smell. Sweet malts, caramel, some brown sugar. Pleasant fruity hops (orange, peach). The taste is of toffee, nuts, oatmeal cookies, some herbs, orange peel, dried apricots and a general fruitiness that’s quite pleasant. Nice balance between the different flavors, though sweetness is slightly dominating. The finish has a gentle herbal bitterness to it, some grass, mild spices and a faint note of dry earth just at the end. Medium body, quite high levels of carbonation. Still feels rather creamy, though. It seems like there’s a well executed craftsmanship behind this beer. However, it’s really not that bold. A good and pleasant beer, but nothing extravagant. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

It’s a shame that a beer that smells and tastes as this lacks body. But it’s very drinkable nevertheless.

Franzen (405) - 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

Flaska från systemet - luktar sött och unket. Djup fin bärnstensfärg, väldigt söt och knappt någon beska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

craftbeersweden (370) - 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...

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
