3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Pours clear copper brown with small tanned bubbly head leaving pretty lacing on the glass. malty aroma hits me first accompanied by notes of grass, spices, hops and fruits. Refreshing crisp mouthfeel. Slightly sweet, malty and hoppy flavor with notes of caramel and fruits. Watery sour on palate. Finishes with nice round longlived bitter hoppy aftertaste.

Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a clear dark golden liquid with a medium sized dirty white head. Flavour of bread and citrus. Semi-smooth mouthfeel, medium thick body and medium amount of carbonation. Not bad, but doesn’t stand out.

The body is light brown, the head is ok. It tastes dark-malty and hoppy. The taste is full of hops and flowers, also it is a bit malty. Interesting one! 12/11/10/10/12/11
