omhper (19803) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2002
Bottled. Dark yellow, average head. Huge grapefruity hop aroma. Very clean maltiness leading to a bitter, hop dominted finish. Nice hop flavour, but with very bold, clean mouthfeel and lacking in depth of the malt character.

Hazy amber beer. Short frothy white head. Neutral palate, perhaps a little soft. Clean fresh hops. Good mix of grass, hop spice and grapefruit. Finishes soft but with a carbonated bite and more fresh hop. Light but fully flavoured and refreshing.

Deep blond color. Nice aroma of hops and toffee. Medium bodied, dryish toffee flavor, citrusy and resiny hopping. Good.

Hazy orange-amber color. Medium aroma strength, hops, cream. Better flavor, some sweet malt and a lot of toffee, with a strong hopping, a bit resiny; quite good body structure. Long and powerful, but balanced, final.
