Dry toasty and biscuity malts, moderate in caramel, dry and woody bitter finish with hints of dark fruits and nuts. Medium body, somewhat carbonated texture. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Well balanced beer with nice hop character.

Tap (William K, Helsinki)
Rich hoppy aroma, some biscuity maltiness too. Quite the slottskallen fingerprint. Cloudy, but that doesn’t look so good in a keg beer, almost muddy. Hoppy and very tasty. A classic Slottskallen modern pale ale. Leaves those sweet biscuity malts with the slightly nettly bitter hops in the finish. Easy drinker.
