bhensonb (12960) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Dark malty aroma with evergreen musty notes. Mahogany color with white, rather flat, head. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. The flavor is dark bread with floral, fruity, evergreen hop mix. The finish is fairly dry, with the malt and hop well balanced (though I didn’t think so at first). Very pleasant in the mouth. Really like it.

FatPhil (11835) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 17, 2009
500ml bottle (Systembolaget, Stockholm) - shared with Mirjukka - thanks!
Rich rusty colour, healthy beige head. Really piney aroma, hinted towards floor cleaner. Crisp carbonation, but also immediately a massive hoppy bite. Possibly a little unbalanced towards the hops, they tingle the mouth and leave it dry and resiny. However, there’s some reasonable roasted malts cowering in the background. Finish from the hops is fruity and bitter, and very nice, but the acidity in the mouth is too much of a price to pay for that, I think.

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.
