3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A clear, golden to copper beer with a small, beige head. Slightly smoked nose with a bready impression and some maltyness. Smoky sourness in the flavor, but mostly it’s caramel and bread, with a hint of fruits. Nice sweetness. Full-bodied. Rather hoppy, dry finish. A pleasant beer, matching the goat sausage nicely. I would maybe like more smoked in the beer, but as the commercial description says, it would probably be a nice one with BBQ-ed pork chops. (090529)

Draught at HAket, Göteborg, on June 6, 2009.
Lots of foam, hard for the crew to present a beer, but after 20 minutes or so I could have a small glass.
Hazy golden color, creamy off-white to a bit orange lasting head. Sweet, malty, smoke, metallic scent. Malty, sweet taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Some fruitiness.
