3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2010 Bottle. The nose doesn’t have much, perhaps some copper and malt. The flavor is crisp, a bit bitter and malty. Some hops present. I like the crisp, clean flavor and medium-light body, but I’d like there to be more flavors going on here. The finish is rich and slightly bitter.

Caramelly sweet malty taste with some fruity notes. Taste is caramel malts with syrupy notes, not that sweet though, also coupled with a decent bitterness. Okay beer.

Pours a clear amber, with a decent head that quickly collapses. The aromas are butterscotch, bread, malt, and some fruits. The taste is quite sweet, and low on the bittering hops, which makes for a beer that’s easy to drink. The aftertaste is fairly long. The mouthfeel is thin and the beer is moderately carbonated.

Flaska från systembolaget. Härlig, fruktig ale. Inte jättespännande men absolut trevlig och lättdrucken. God!

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, best before 7/2014. Pours slightly hazy bright orange copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, golden raisin, pear, apple, herbal, floral, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, golden raisin, pear, apple, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, golden raisin, pear, apple, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice English pale ale. Well balanced dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
