Mörkbrun lite rödaktig med mellanstort ljusbrunt skum! Doftar mycket sötmalt och i smaken är den lite rökig och söt! Ok öl!

Beer4000 (4328) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2014
500 ml bottle at Fox and Hounds, Åbenraa. Dark brown body with a beige head. Quite nice aroma of dark malt, caramel, dark fruit and the Svaneke signature aroma. Pleasant malt flavor, a bit sweet, some fruit, slightly roasted and moderate bitterness. Medium body and decent in aftertaste. Not my favorite beer style, but a decent drinkable version of it.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Beautiful as it is, it doesn’t quite live up to the looks of it, By all means a good brew, but on the bitter side of Brown Ales, and nothing copared to that of Randers Bryghus. Brown Ale by all standards is a difficult brew to master, and Svaneke, although making a good attempt, doesn’t nail it. A little too grainy and metal-like on the back palate to make it a winner, but otherwise a decent attempt, and just above average when it comes to this style. Turns flat quickly, with some metal in the aftertaste, hinting on inferior hops. Recommended if not too expensive

Bamsen78 (2417) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours slightly cloudy dark copper brown with airy beige head. Clear aroma of malt and hops with notes of fruit and caramel. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of roast, fruit and malt. Rather bitter finish. Medium carbonation. OK but nothing revolutionary.

ChristianHR (151) - DENMARK - AUG 24, 2013
Meget mørk farve. Flot let brunt skum. Dejlig blomstret sød duft. En kraftig smag af mørk malt, med en god bitter eftersmag, som giver en lyst til en ekstra tår.
