Hazy brown colour, very little head. First taste has grass, malts, herbs. After that feels bitter upon your tongue, kind of undecided about this one. Guess this one’s more modern jazz?

Simple one with just a bit of malt and some nuts. Drinkable, bit waterish and quite boring.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from trade with oh6gdx - many thanks to you, Patrik! Pours out in a deep dark amber-brown colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of torf, peat and roasted nuts. Taste of mild hops, roast, torf, woods, leaves, smoke and vanilla. Too toasty and smokey for me but not that bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours reddish dark brown with a medium-sized white head. Aroma features some sweetish malty notes, caramel, with dark fruitiness and a hint of hoppiness. Taste is medium sweet with the emphasis initially on slightly toasty maltiness, later on hoppy fruitiness. Caramel is paired with bread and some coffee, later also grapefruit appears. Hoppiness reaches its peak at the dry, long finish. The palate is nearly medium bodied which is a positive surprise, the texture slick and the carbonation average. This was surprisingly good: great balance between malty and hoppy elements!
