Sample at Lkpg Beer Expo. Amber color. Fruity, marmelady and grassy hoppy and with a lingering bitterness. Rather dry despite the caramellish malt flavours.

fiulijn (19119) - 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.

omhper (23428) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2008
Draught at Glenfiddich Warehouse 68, Stockholm. Lightly hazy amber colour, small airy head. Rixh aroma of hay and orange. The English hops dominate the beer throughout. It’äs fairly light bodied with criso, delicate mouthfeel and notes of caramel. Finsihes with balanced, yet marked ´bitterness. Fresh, relaxed and fairly hoppy as befits a Skebo brew. They make really good beers, and when I think about it this is the type of brewer I want to populate the countryside. I would however find it difficult to separate the varous beers Skebo has made in a blind test, as they are not that difficult from another.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2008
Draught at Mac Innlays’s Inn, Stockholm. Pours out in a slightly hazy amber colour with a rich long-lasting off-white rocky foam. Dryish aroma of wet grass, orange-peels, straw, rubber and yellow fruit. Medium-bodied with notes of hay, yellow plums and orange-peels. Long medium bitter finish of orange-peels and hay. Crisp and fresh brew, very hoppy and bordering to an UK IPA, IMHO...

Svesse (7849) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2008
(Draught at Glenfiddich Warehouse No 68, Stockholm, 11 April 2008) Dark amber colour with firm, beige head. Rather hazy. Malty nose with notes of wort, dark fruit and caramel. Malty taste with dark fruit, caramel and citrussy hops in the finish. Very nice balance. It’s got a very english feel to it. Good beer!

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.
