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.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 2, 2012
(Bottle) Pours mahogany coloured. The aroma holds hoppy notes of grass, soft black currant leaves and peach. The malt brings cookie-like tones. The flavour is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with cookies toast, fruits and grass. Maybe a touch of tea. The mouthfeel is clean and a bit round with medium carbonation. Malty finish with a light hoppy sting. Medium bodied.

Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget Clear deep mahogny, small beige head. Fruity hop aroma, with peaches, mandarin, and some cheesy notes, some caramelly malt in the background. Dry with a long bitterness. A very nice hoppy lager.

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.

Clear chestnut, hazel color, tan head. Sweet, hoppy, fruity, mango, cheese, cinnamon, orange scent. Weak, malty, fruity taste, also sweet and hoppy bitter. Medium to medium thin mouthfeel. Medium bitterness.
Surprisingly good, I had my doubts and my predjudism before tasting it, but well worth getting!

Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2010
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.

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.

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.
