TBone (14262) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2005
Bottled
Clear copper brown, small white head. Flowery hoppy with sweetish diacetyl-like toffee hints. Quite light with butterscotch, grassy - notes (diacetyl? I’m not sure, not used to find it in Slottskällans, maybe just too caramelly). Drinkable but too sweet.

Oakes (13594) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2002
Reddish amber - at least it looks nice. Big, bad phenols disrupt any sense of maltiness this beer was trying to develop.

bierkoning (11206) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Amber color. Bready spicy aroma. Spicy flavor with rye bread, cardemom and anis. Sweet but luckily with a subtle spicing.

FatPhil (10992) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 2, 2010
Keg (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) - as "Midvinterbryg"
4 caramel and lager,
3 lager with caramel added
5 caramelly lager, touch of wool later
3 some crispness as a lager, but some smoothness brought on by the caramel
9 so, did they put caramalt in this? dont’t know what’s wrong with this, if anything, but it’s just dull. Touch of washing machine detergent. Not a complete disaster, but I expect more from them.

madsberg (10801) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2006
Bottled. Amber coloured. Light hazy. Small light beige head. Very high carbonated. Fruity and sweet aroma. Light notes of dark chocolate. A bit bland. Flavour is a bit better. Chocolate, fruits, light citrus and spice. Medium bodied. Ends on a fruity and citric note.

rosenbergh (8685) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2012
500 ml bottle. Finland.
Clear copper colour with small white head. Caramel, chocolate, roasted malt and hay in aroma. Flavour is not so roasted but still with chocolate and lots of malt. Easy to drink but not necessarily that good.

Hansen (7652) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2003
I don't like the aroma (ceralic?), and the head goes of to quickly. But the taste and finish is strong and full of hops. Long lasting dry final.

laiti (7563) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2013
50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 28.01.2010
Aroma has bready malt, some toffee and roasted notes. Flavour is also rather malty with bread, some toffee, roasted notes and hints of coffee. Finishes with syrupy notes. Good.
