75 cl Bottle. Red-brown colour with a nice fast head. Very malty and caramel aroma. And also very malty taste and a lot af caramel in aftertaste, so some sweetness afterall, a typical Svaneke beer. But its sade that there come additives in the beer(Colour E150).

Caramel and toast nose, hazy auburn color, low tight biege head. Full sweet malt body, toffee, some chocolate too. Hazelnut in the middle. Quick tinge of a hop bitter towards the end. More sweet than bitter but quite good.

Another nice beer from Svaneke Bryghus. But, they really should do something about the homogeneity of their beers, they all taste very much the same..... This one pours a dark amber body with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet of dark roasted malt and caramel. Flavor is also quite sweet at first but has a good bitter end. Malt, caramel and toffee and hops in the finish. Very soft and creamy.

Wowzer - thank you Ivan for this nice treat! Nice orange nealry red color. Fizzy carbonation. Small head on top. An intense almond nose with nice notes of cherry. Great nutty - mmhhh more like hazelnut, caramel taste with some light bitter chocolate notes. Nice bitter kick at the end but quite short.

This i a great vienna. The beer has the same type of yeast taste as many other beers from Svaneke. Bitter finish, caramel, sweet flavour. High carbonation shich gives a great mouth feeling.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - APR 23, 2007
Bottle. Brownish coloured with a medium sized head. Not very pleasant. Sour, dry, bitter, grassy and also kinda sweet. Very strange.

Dark amber color with a decent head. The taste is sweet with notes of caramel. A nicely balanced beer.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2004 (on bottle)A very plesant mouthfull that"should be enjoyed with friends" as the label reads. Only pulling 5,8 this is a beer that you actually CAN enjoy at any time, without having to take a nap(or a new beer)after. A hazy, lightbrown brew, with a very nice nut and caramelnose to it. The sherrytaste increases with the lenght of drinking. Apart from the other brews from Svaneke, this has no ugly yeast bitteraftertaste.

Nice brown body with nice white head. The nose is lots of malts and caramel. The same is the flavor. In fact i find it too malty and sweet not enough hops to balance out the malts.
