COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Freedom är en India Pale Ale i amerikansk stil med stora mängder amerikansk humle som ger en rik frisk doft samt en markerad beska. Denna i kombination med den stora maltiga kroppen och den något högre alkoholhalten ger en mycket välbalanserad öl. I den fylliga smak- och doftprofilen finns det massor av nyslaget gräs och citrus och en lång trevlig beska.

Klassifikation: India Pale Ale

Användning: Freedom är perfekt till lite starkare mat som indiska rätter eller tex-mex, men den är även trevlig som en smakrik törstsläckare. Den fungerar självklart även utmärkt till lite kraftigare husmanskost och grillat kött.

Innehåll: Fyra sorters malt: Pilsner-, münchener-, carared och melanoidinmalt. Fyra sorters humle: Northen Brewer, Simcoe, Amarillo och Citra.

Alkoholhalt: 6,5 %

Artikelnummer hos Systembolaget: 89687-01

Linnet (1091) - Karlstad, - DEC 19, 2012
Ar: plenty of fruity hops, citric, pine, Grass, spruce, some pineapple, sweet malts, Wood. Ap: amber colour, medium cream head, lacing. F: big resinous bite, grapefruit, medicinal, pine, citric, bitterness is harsh and lingers for a very long time, malts are light and understated, again a note of Wood in the end. M: average. T: My perception of Slottskällans was That they were always bland. Even though I’m not totally convinced by this brew, no one can accuse this for being flavourless.

Timvim (65) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle @ kitchen and table, Uppsala, 20140719. Aroma of dusty british malt, floral. Taste is similar, maltiness like a british IPA with caramel, toffee and almonds. Almost no aroma hop character, a little floral, a bit perfume, some alcohol. Very high and unbalanced bitterness. Heat damaged or old bottle? Didn’t note the date on the bottle.

Bottled. Pours clear, pale amber with a small, fizzy, white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, notes of pineapple and spicy notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and average carb. A nice IPA.

Bottle at KØ14. Fruity and chalky aroma. Clear amber colour. Small white head. The flavour is nicely malty with a mild grassy hop note. Teaish aftertaste. Not a powerful IPA, but good.

Flaske, 50 cl. Ravgylden med et cremet off white skum. Grapefrugtig næse. Masser dejlig crystal og caramel malt. Super balance. Fyldig med nogle næsten kaffe-agtige ristedenoter. God.

18-MAY-2014, bottle @home, present from Morten, from Magasin. Clear golden with a red hue and high tan head. Hoppy, grassy, citric, fruity. Medium body and carbonation. Not the biggest or most bitter IPA but a nice easy drinking one. Thx. Morten.
