2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at Soldaten Svejk in Stockholm. It poured a clear dark golden liquid with a medium sized light brown foam that left a nice lacing. Weak smell of caramell and amalt. Smooth mouthfeel. Taste of malt, burned toast and lots of caramell. I didn’t enjoy this beer very much, way to much caramell and it had another taste that didn’t fit me.

I have had a bottle of this in fridge for awhile, dodging it actually, but was pleasantly surprised that it drank so easily. Nothing fancy but smooth drinking with light toffee notes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2010 500ml bottle. Amber, light beige head. Aroma of rich caramel, a bit of toast, touches of earth and grass. Taste has caramel, but it’s not all that sweet. Hazelnuts and some dry sherry. A little sourness. Quite pronounced bitterness at the finish features some metal. Not really my sort of thing but rather good. [3.1]
Trying again, this time on purpose. I bought the one above expecting a pilsener (ignorant as I am). Then I bought another by accident, enjoyed it rather more and was surprised to later look at my rating (the description’s OK, the score’s not). This is lovely: a balanced, tasty and gluggable drop.
