Frovigalning (2879) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Malty smell and taste, a bit like smelling a bag of fresh malts. Nice, but it felt like it should be enjoyed in a german pub from a large glas.

Expired 20-09-03. Pours a medium off-white head on a brown/red body. Aroma is mainly of roasted malt with some coffee-like notes in the background. Flavor is bitter and spicy. Notes of malt, spices, coffee, bitter chocolate, hops and herbs. A different but quite nice and flavorfull beer.

Vignale (1979) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2013
Flaska från SB. Brun/bärnstensfärgad, lågt skum. Brödig doft, karamell med inslag av humle som kanske känns lite trött och grönsaksaktig. Len snäll munkänsla, bröd, lite karamell men måttlig sötma, tydlig men snäll humle som är lite bärig och gräsig. En välavstämt öl med komplexa maltsmaker. Riktigt trevligt.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAR 1, 2006
(on bottle)Like the "Ljus", this is a very well done beer, got lots of dried fruits and malts in the aroma and and nice reddish-brown color. Full mouth and added some wood and vanillaflavours to the aroma. Finish is watery and just riight for a dunkel.
