Amber with a nice head. Malt aroma with some burned notes. Mostly sweet flavour, but with a bitterness I don’t like, tobacco may be a good deScription.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled - trade with chris_o. A mahogany coloured beer with no head. The aroma is very malty, with brown bread and cakey fruits. The taste also has brown fruits. It is sweet as one would expect, maybe too sweet, with tobacco notes.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A slightly hazy amber beer with a nice light brown head. The aroma is typically for Svanke, sweet with notes of straw and fruity esters - reminding me of a barn yard. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, straw, fruity esters, and citrus, but also hints of the alcohol, and a slightly burnt end. The mouthfeel is very smooth, just like the whole range of Svaneke beers.

Cloudy copper colour with thin white head. Nice yeast hop aroma. Nice lemon fruit. A certain meatyness too. I quite like this. Lemon is subtle but present. Good balance and depth of flavour.

Orange-brown, a tad biiter, this beer tastes rather malty, this brew goes very well with food. It is one of the best I have ever tasted from Svaneke. I will drink it again any tiime.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very vegetal, legume-like, earthy, beety aroma. Orange-copper coloured body with a low, off white head that recedes to ring. Vegetal notes are offset by sweet malts with some yeasty, doughy flavours, some dark fruit and moderate finishing bitterness. Medium body with fair carbonation. Bottle (Ølbutikken, Aug-05) sampled with MartinT, Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.
