COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
En brittiskt inspirerad ale bryggd på ljus malt, mörk karamellmalt och lite svartmalt. Humlen är East Kent Golding och vi har även tillsatt lite av samma sorts humle i lagringstanken, så kallad torrhumling. Trots sin ringa alkoholstyrka har den mycket smak och doft. Det är alltså en umgängesöl som man kan njuta många av.

Bottle @ home, 23/3-14.
App: Black with some red brown tints. Filled tho whole glass with foam, hmmm.
Aroma: Very dry and slight sourish burnt ashy and slight fruity aroma up front. Then comes some pretty nice roasty notes of dark bread and chocolate.
Taste: Also quite burnt and ashy at first, but leans more on roasty bready, chocolate and coffee notes with some smooth citrus.
Palate: Big mushy carbonation, smooth texture.
Overall: What’s up with the carbonation? A bit too ashy and hard, but otherwise really nice dark "folk beer".

rarbring (1255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2014
Aroma: Smelling of dark bread, sour grape-fruit, cold coffee and yeast.
Appearance: A dark brown colored beer. A fluffy tan head with good lacing and some curtains.
Taste: Tasting dark bread, dried dates, weak coffee and orange peel.
Palate: High carbonation, a watery texture. A small body with a slightly dry finish.
Overall: Explosive, slightly sour. Had it gone off? But not really bad.
Note: Bottle 500 ml at home. Reviewed 2014-02-26.

Vary dark brown with a big and very firm beige head that lasts for a loooong time. Mild roasted coffee aroma. The taste is, you guessed it, pretty mild as well. Medium sweet, mild roasted flavours, but more chocolate than coffee this time.Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Slightly soapy but quite smooth and rich especially considering the ABV. Definitely one of my favourite "folköl" (as we call 3.5% to approx. 2.8% ABV beers here in Sweden).

VsXsV (2171) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle. Clear, very dark brown/black liquid with big, fluffy light brown head. Aroma of pumpernickel, coffee, ash, fruity yeast esters, toast and light noble hops. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of pumpernickel and toast. Medium bodied (maybe on the lighter side) with medium carbonation. Pretty nice for a low ABV beer.

Aniela (2305) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2013
Draught. Dark brown beer with a beige head. Vinous, spicy, malty and coffee aroma. Dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malt flavour. Rather boring beer.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2013
(Bottle, from Hemköp Marieberg, Stockholm) Dark brown colour with lasting beige head, leaving traces of lacing. Roasted, malty nose with notes of coffee, black rye bread, dark chocolate, raisins, liquorice and hints of smoke. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, roasted grain, black rye bread, liquorice, cocoa and a gentle roasty bitterness in the finish. Light body, mainly dry. Tasty and well made mild ale. Nice one.

(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 10 Jan 2009) Dark brown colour, almost black, with ruby hints. Frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of coffee and cocoa. Roasted, malty, slightly burnt taste with liquorice, cocoa, freshly ground coffee and a nice, dry coffee bitterness in the finish. Body is on the thin side, but there’s lots of taste. Really nice beer. And how nice to see a Swedish micro making such a good effort at this very British beer style.
