Slottskällans Höstlager är en maltig och medelhumlad mörk lager med rostad karaktär, lätt knäckig sötma med en mjuk och rund avslutning. Höstens färger och smaker speglar brygdens helhetsintryck. Den tjeckiska humlen ger doft av gräs-örtiga toner och den amerikanska mer aromer och toner åt citrushållet.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2010
0.5L bottle from Systembolaget, Charlottenberg. A finger of big-bubbled beige foam upon a brilliant brownish red body. Strong and inviting hop nose, grass, faint fruit and spice. Also a fresh scent of peppery, toasted and caramelly malts. Light to medium malt body. More dry than sweet, with a slight sour tone. Some pepper notes and some fruitiness, A quite bold hop bitterness too. Well-bodied for a 5 percenter. Hop linger and sour-sweet malts i the ending. Very good indeed.

Dark reddish amber color with a nice creamy off white head. Hoppy aroma with a nice citrus touch. Smooth and round flavor of lightly roasted caramel malt loaded with citrus hops and a perfect touch of butterscotch sweetness. This is a real good one. Well balanced and very nice, a pleasant experience.

500ml bottle picked up at Systembolaget Gyllentorget, Linköping. Golden-brown body. Low, beige head. Smell of mild roasted malts. Roasted mid-sweet malts in flavour offset by dark bitter fruits. Quite alright without any greatness (hotel room, 14.09.2010).

Komplex, med ett avancerat mönster av smaker som tar ett tag att hitta rätt i. Med det inte sagt att den är svårdrucken. Det fina är att den avnjutas på olika nivåer: som enkel sällskapsdryck eller som ett finsmakaralternativ. Slottskällan gör en sällan besviken.

I was surprised by this, way better than my expectations (which might have been unfairly low though). Very nice caramelly and earthy malt base which really lends an air of autumn (fittingly, the name means autumn lager), and then there’s a good touch of herbal and citrusy hops. I’m glad I decided to go against my expectations and actually try this.
