S:t Eriks Amber Ale är bryggt på speciell torrostad karamellmalt för den klassiska färgen och smaken. Det ger ölet en stor torrostad maltaromatisk doft och smak. Humlesorterna består av tre höga C med Centennial, Citra och Cascade som alla är typiska för den amerikanska västkusten. Alkoholhalten är trots den stora smaken endast 4,5 procent.

CloakedDagger (1969) - - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle 33 cl. Hardly even amber, rather deep golden with a dense, off-white head. Very delicate aroma, very fruity and lightly tropical. Body is very light, bordering watery, a light roastiness (?) rather than caramel, I evense sense a vague coffee note. Very unusual, if they insist this is an Amber, but still quite enjoyable. 240915

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2014
(Bottle) Golden amber colour with lasting, frothy, off-white head. Malty nose with notes of toast, nuts, toffee, tea, citrus and a touch of chocolate. Malty taste with toast, nuts, toffee, caramel and floral hops in a finish with a balanced bitterness. Medium body, fairly dry. Well balanced and tasty. quite nice.

Hopmaestro (1310) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
One of my mottos is "There is no bad beers, only different levels of good ones"...but... A thick sweet aroma of old malts, bread and an elderly mans wardrobe. The taste is as the color of the label implies, brown, and I imagine a loaf of bread dipped in mollasses, dropped on the ground and sprinkled with old herbs and leftover hops. Nope, this one should be kept in that elderly mans wardrobe

Bottle from Glug Newcastle. An unusual one. Almost a bit smoky - dark, deep flavours with an undercurrent of faint fruit. Very good

33 cl Pitchers Örebro. En öl som inte sticker ut men som fungerar att sippa på i brist på annan bira.

Gurthnar (5018) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle thanks to MisoW. Aroma is mostly hoppy. Earthy, floral, fruity, capuccino. Interesting mix. Golden to amber colour. Good head. Taste is again mostly hoppy, basically as the aroma suggests. Overall good and drinkable, but nothing to celebrate.

visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 20, 2014
33cl bottle from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours clear dark golden to copper with a white head. Malty aroma with hints of roast and wood and moderate hoppy notes with citrus and hints of tropical fruits and pine. Moderate sweet with a fairly nice bitterness. Quite drinkable and fairly nice, but not the best from S:t Eriks.

ATulloch (222) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle from deeside drinks emporium. Pours a nice clear brown with a small white head which fades. Lovely aroma of roasted coffee, slightly burned toast and varnished wood. Taste is similar with enhanced coffee. Beautiful for a 4.5%! Very drinkable!
