Bottle @ Stockholm Beer Festival
Light amber. Aroma of bread crumbs. Malty taste with a good bit of bitttering hops. Lacks in complexity, though (as in fruits/flowers). Not a golden (summer) ale by british standards.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden to bronze colour. Medium head. Bubblegum and honey aroma. Medium bodied, malty flavour, almost too sweet in the beginning but before you know it, it gets nice and hop-bitter with a salty finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 Updated rating - bottled. The recipe has been changed, and more hops are added, this is notable in the aroma which is noteworthy is the now very grapefruity aroma. It’s also much less dry, but the rounded, buttery maltiness remains, as does the notes of vanilla. I like the new version better.
Old rating - Bottled (6/3/7/4/12). Deep golden, brief head. Very dry with rounded, buttery maltiness. Lightly flowery with notes of vanilla. Salty, dusty finish with good bitterness.
