3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap in Rattle n Hum. Finally a beer that ratebeer deigns to call a Scotch Ale - nothing in Scotland appears Scottish or even Scotch enough to qualify as a true Sweaty! Deep brown in colour, tiny foam. Sweet aroma, toffee, fudge, slight smell of a mash! Soft malty palate, hints of booze coming through. Just enough bitterness to balance it out. Maybe not my favourite type of beer but well executed.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bought @ Systembolaget. Slow gusher. Pours dark brown with a rather big frothy brownish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is malty and fruity with old dry dark bread, raisin bran, caramelized apples, oatmeal, biscuits, smoke and hay. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and tiny fruity with toasted cereal, sweet dark bread, oatmeal, biscuits, caramel, red apples, baked pears, moist soil, red berries, liquorice root, caraway, smoke, wood and hay. Mouthfeel is soft, creamy, round and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter, malty and tiny fruity with biscuits, caramelized apples, alcohol, oatmeal, hay, wood, red berries, smoke and hints of toffee. Was rather turned off by the old bread smell but taste and mouthfeel really makes up for it.
