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.

chribban (160) - 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...

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.

JorisPPattyn (7772) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2007
Chestnut to Coca-Cola colour; good yellowish head. Very nice, fresh hops nose, mixed with a very obvious and remarkable lemonbalm aroma. Very hoppy taste, a bit of cigar ashes, melanoidins; wood & tannines retronsal. Smoke coming up after a while, both in nose and taste. Quite well-bodied, even some alcohol for its meagre 5.3%. A very good, very original Swedish ale, well worth searching. Thanks to IKEA traveler Stefaan

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 23, 2009
500ml bottle (Alko, Helsinki)
Rich red, small head. Lovely fruity and fresh hoppy aroma, sweet caramel too, really jumps out of the glass. Pleasant carbonation, lively in the mouth. Sweet grainy body, but tons of crisp fresh sweet hops, even a little gingery in places. Finish is sticky both in a sugary and a resiny way, and that’s not a problem at all. Very worthy of the title ’English Strong Ale’ - this could give most ESAs a run for their money. Full of flavour, but a really tasty quaff.

500 ml bottle. Finland (HHOK). Copper colour with foamy off-white head. Sweetish hoppy and malty aroma. Flavour is first sweetish with some dried fruits. Flavour ends with dry bitterness.

Dark brown body, white head. Aroma of flowery and grapefruity hops. Really overwhelming. Flavour has lots of hops and little malt. Maybe too little.
