COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Midvinter Ljus är en unik öl. Vi har plockat godbitarna från två vitt skilda öltraditioner. Grunden är en torr, maltig, pilsner. Ölen har sedan kryddats med humlen Fuggle som annars är vanligast i brittisk ale. Resultatet är en aromatisk öl med kraftig beska och blommig doft.

Svesse (5845) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2006
(Bottled) Golden yellow colour with foamy, but disappearing, head. Flowery, grassy nose with cereal, hops and spicy hints of citrus and ... pineapples? Distinct but somewhat prickly. Taste is dry and bitter with cereal, white bread and hops. Despite the dryness, some hints of sweetness come through towards the finish, mainly dry though. Light to medium bodied. Refreshing and nice, but with an odd underlying sharpness.
