2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Botle from Systembolaget, Sweden.
Small aroma from darker malts with a tuch of caramell.
Huge hoppy taste with big hard bitterness ( could be because I drank it without any aging).
Perfect body and nice sweetness in the beer. Small drinkabillity due to its harsh bitterness.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 33 cl, SB. Pours slightly murky deep red mahogany with a great beige head leaving some lace. Aroma is weak; malty, bready, fruity and a bit caramel. Flavor is malty, bready, fruity, bitter and perry. Finishes malty bitter. Not a BW imho and I’ll rate the beer as a BW. But a good beer, more like a malty IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Sweetish, marmalade, candy, fruity hops and a warming finish.
Appearance: Amber colour, no head.
Flavour: English IIPA? This is a brew that borders on being a mellow IIPA. Very aromatically hoppy. Not as big a bite as an American style BW, but lots of floral hop notes. Not as thick a maltbase as is the standard either. Very quaffable but a bit light for the style.
Total: This is in no way a bad brew, all the flavours are pleasant enough, it is just that it is a lightweight that holds it back. Not so sure that this would cellar well either since its best feature is the aromatic hops.
