Roasted malts and floral hops to the nose.

Nice finish with resin, roasted malts, slightly dry-bitter.
A good brew with a likeable taste travelling through a balanced spectre of flavours.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aug ’14. A 0.33 l bottle from some Systembolaget in or around Stockholm. It poured clear copper body with small head. Aroma was nicely hopped - herbal, citrus and sweeter fruits, but also generously sweet caramel malted. Flavor was sweet, too. Caramel and sugar were dominated but distinct hop bitterness couldn’t be missed either. Full bodied brew with long bittersweet finish, both herbal and syrupy car. A pleasant beer, a bit on the sweeter side but consistent and far from unbalanced.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy amber with some off-white head. A boring malty aroma with a bit of citrus and white grapes from the bottle. A sweet caramel taste with some bitter finish. Boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske 330ml fra Systembolaget, Kiruna. Mørk gyldenbrun. Middels høyt skum med litt farge. Forsiktig - men god fruktaroma. Fersken. Smaken har samme preg. Lite kullsyre. Svakt syrlig etter hvert.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, light Auburn and a decent scoop of an eggshell white head. Strawberry jam nose, light peach and grassy pine nose. Initial taste is a dusty gallop of hop, clean citrus and streamed buns. Firm, cooling hoppy fizz on the mouthfeel. Quite herby and metallic on the finish. Brassy orange linger. Sadly past its best but not fault of the vendor. Decent enough bitterness throughout. Bottle.

Poured from bottle, dark amber with off white head. Aroma with notes of citrus and pine. Taste medium bitterness, light malt body and not so much of a lingering bitterness. Notes of citrus and resin. Feels like there could have been more to it...
