TEJA (2426) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2012
Draught at Oliver Twist. Short light beige head. Chrystal clear mahogny color. Piny, almost smokey aroma. Big bitterness that lasts a long time. Small chrystal maltiness but no sweetness to balance the bitterness. Litle to big bitterness to give it their usual big drinkabillity.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Draught at Nya Tröls, Malmö
Beautiful amber color, hazy, with generous creamy head. The aroma is hoppy, a bit sweaty, with grass, but also dusty. Strong caramel flavor; correct body strength, the mouthfeel is very dry; strong bitterness, and once again that dust feeling; some yeast too in the final, that is maybe too bitter. Within the family of Bitters, it’s a quite good beer.

SaintMatty (6809) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2011
Draught (Bishops Arms, Vasagatan, Stockholm) - Amber in colour. Peach, tea, grapefruit and toffee in the aroma. Hoppy and refreshing taste with a noticeable yet not overwhelming bitterness. Notes of peach, apricot, sticky toffee and soap can be detected. The best Skebo beer I’ve had thus far.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - APR 18, 2011
Sample at Lkpg Beer Expo. Amber color. Fruity, marmelady and grassy hoppy and with a lingering bitterness. Rather dry despite the caramellish malt flavours.

ekstedt (6516) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2010
UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 Draught at Bishops Arms, Avenyn, Göteborg, Sweden. Shady copper, medium off-white head. Floral hop aroma on a bready and bisquity malt aroma. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Fairly dry, low to medium bitterness, a bit weak aftertaste.

Draught at GBWF 2013. Increasing the rating a bit.
