2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,5 l bottle from local supermarket. Light brown colour, head OK, but not big. Quite easygoing taste as you would expect from ale with 3.5% alcohol. This was refreshing.

Det här var en konservativ sak, inget som passar min gom direkt. Dessvärre tyckte jag att kroppen är lite tunn och den upplevs som något fadd.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper colour with a small white head. Toffee and fruity aroma. A bit weak sweet toffe, fruity and hoppy flavour. Medium body. Moderate sweetness and an ok bitterness. Absolutely one of the best beer you can get in a Swedish grocery store.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: The smell is sweet toffee, brown bread, sour fruit notes, green apple peel, some fresh mowed lawn.
Appearance: The beer is clear copper amber, a slightly orange hued off-white head, rather high, settles slowly, leaves good lacing.
Taste: Upfront malt sweetness, molasses, then some riper fruits, pears, then a rather sharp chemical bitterness.
Palate: Medium carbonation, small bubbles, rather thin and watery, lack of body, a dry twinge at the end that fades away rather slowly.
Overall: This beer is better in it’s stronger version, at this ABV it becomes a bit sharp and watery.
Note: Bottle 500 ml. Reviewed 2011-01-22.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the supermarket. Slightly fizzy at first with a frothy head. A balance flavour though it’s lighter than you might expect. A nice, drinkable beer.
