Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget, Malmö.
<b>[thank you, myrup]</b>
Pours nutty brown with a great, off-white head - almost looking like dirty whipped cream. Fine duration and lacing. Great bready malts aroma, some pine hops and general sweetness. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is lovely ashy, some roasted notes, good pine hoppiness and dryness. Really lovely and refreshing with plenty of hops to warm.

Smells like an american pale ale. The body is thin. The taste is a bit dry with yeast and some pine.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2008 From a brown 12 ounce bottle - Pours a slightly cloudy orange/yellow color. Smells sweet and hoppy. Below average carbonation. First sip is all grassy hops but is certainly missing a needed stronger malt backbone.
