Hoppy clove/grassy notes. Taste is bitter at start which is matched with sweet maltiness. Finishes with a tangy bitterness and some sweetness. Appearance is a gold/amber body with creamy head with good retention

Bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a one finger frothy off-white head. The nose is pretty typical for the style, some lightly toasty malt, a hint of caramel, some minimal floral hops. The flavor leans a bit toward the sweeter side with a little caramel and toasty malt. Not much in the way of hops here, but there’s a slight hint on the finish. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty basic Amber, but better than a lot of craft beer efforts I’ve had.

On bottle from Systembolaget Sälen. Deep golden color, good foam. Immediate malty, some dried fruits and grassy notes . Medium body & complexity. Some sweetness, ok balance. Enjoyable

Poured quickly, a 12 oz bottle fills a 20 oz English pub glass. The head looks great but the brown ale is very unappealing. Tastes more like a lager than an ale, a plus for me.

Nice off-white head with sticky lace; the broth color could be described neutral amber with a touch of orange. Very clear.
Smell: More malt than hop; slightly sweet, very round. Lots of caramel, but no chocolate. The hop is present strictly as a spice.
The taste is similar to a British bitter. Strong hop bite in the swallow (and aftertaste), but the initial sip is malty. Very smooth--richer than most bitters with a typical amount of carbonation. I think this beer would do very well in a blind flight.

@ Ystad. Flaska från Systembolaget (18:-). Maltig och ganska humlig smak och doft av bl.a. citrus, gröna äpplen och kryddor. Medelbesk med en hyfsat lång avslutning.
