Vignale (2061) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2011
Bärnstensfärgad, med ganska lågt skum som bildar ett lock. Stor typisk engelsk doft men kanske med någon extra tvist. Blommig, gräs, drag av bergamottolja, känckebröd, karamell och mineraler. Lite söt munkänla men med mycket aromatiska och beska humlesmaker. Mineraler, jordkällare, blommor och lite bittra örter, nötter, lite läder. En stark bitter/special bitter med riktigt fin malt/humledynamik. riktigt lång eftersmak. Jag älskar den här sortens öl och i sin genre är detta riktigt lyckat. Kul att få skriva ett positivt omdöme om Sigtuna också.

Bottle: Clear red/Coppery colour, with a big creamy head! Aroma is a little bomb of fruits, citrus, flowery nose, some caramelly, and swet maltynes. Flavor had a nice citrus mix and a nice fruitynes, some caramellynes in the nd mixed with nice bitternes. Thin to medium body, medium fruity/citrus finish! Well done!!

mzaar (1608) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2011
En stor, gräddig krona som är både vacker och långvarig. Dofter av övermogna clementiner, sommaregn och min farmors jordkällare. Smakar apelsin, mörk sirap och rågbröd. Mycket bra!

Marsiblursi (3005) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 16, 2011
(Bottle) Pours orange to amber with a large off-white head. The aroma holds wet crisp bread, dark chocolate fudge, orange juice, hay, burned wood and spices up front. Undertones of wet tobacco, wine gum, apricot and earth alongside a touch of plastic. I really like the Sigtuna malt nose. The flavor is light sweet to dry, medium bitter and light acidic. Tones of citrus, bitter herbs, crisp bread, toffee and some other stuff from the aroma. The mouthfeel is robust malty, almost chewy (for a 4.9% beer) and round with a near full, fizzy carbonation. Hop bitter, earthy and herbal finish. Medium bodied. Bit too bitter, but this is quite tasty if you ask me.

Ingevara (803) - SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2011
Foamy tinted head. Copper color, smell of grapes and juniper. Sturdy hoppiness, heavy grapefruit and dry apricots. British late summer must be very chilly, I’d call this a winterwarmer was it slightly sweeter.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2012
Dark amber color, with small head. The aroma of malt and caramel is very deep and persistent, the malts have some roasted character, and it also has that dusty trait that is common in Scandinavia; nice hops too. Despite the low ABV, the body is strong enough and the mouthfeel quite round; strong caramel flavor, and strong bitterness as expected from Sigtuna; the roastiness of the malts gently increases towards the end, that is a bit ashy.
Not the expected Harvest Ale, but very good.
