COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They should be good men; their affairs as righteous: But all hoods make not monks. Beneath a deep blanket of snow there is a cereal grain that can survive the harsh winters and acidic soils - RYE. Like a draped hood over a monk, it is the righteousness inside that shines.

Cranking out some good ones in cans. Mostly malt without much hops going on here. Rye beers seem to often be that way.

Svesse (5875) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 7 March 2014) Reddish amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty nose with notes of apricots, orange peel, rye bread and resin. Malty, spicy taste with citrus, orange peel, rye bread and a generous resinous bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Spicy and quite tasty. Nice one.

BLADT (211) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 4, 2014
Poured from can. Dark, orange in glass. Big rye nose. Some toffee. Full bodied. Lots of malt flavors. Semi sweet to start, mildly bitter on finish. Nicely balanced. Never cloying. Very drinkable.

Had this in a can at Swine in New York, because there draft system was not working. When I ordered they served it to me without a glass and when I asked him for one the server looked at me like I was being rude. Anyways, he eventually brought me a shaker and the beer pours a hazy amber with very limited white head. No lacing. The rye and hops are slightly off balance but not in an unpleasant way.

Rcvd in trade. The appearance has a hazy golden amber colored body with less than a half fingered white foamy head that when it dies there’s a nice clingy lacing that coats the entire glass. The smell has a nice rye malt coming through (nice even though this is a month past its prime). Spicy malt tries to come through to combine with the hops, but has a sort of separateness to it. The taste has a nice spice to it, yet there’s still a nice sweetness coming through. There isn’t much of an aftertaste and has a somewhat dry spicy finish. On the palate, honestly, there really doesn’t seem much there, sure there’s a light sort of body to it (did it subside due to its age....? I dunno). However, I will say its sessionable - sure is as I’d have this with food. Carbonation is a bit smoother than most Rye Beers I’ve had. Overall, I’d like to try this again fresher because I think this one could definitely be a front runner of its style, just a month past its prime and I still liked it for the most part.

Nja svag doft lite metallisk smak. På tok för mycket mesiga engelska Brown Ale toner. För 7,2 % kan man undra varför de inte fått mer Goa smaker.
