Christian (12189) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2006
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.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2006
50 cl bottle. Amber colour with a great white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and some toffee-like. Very tasty flavour of sweetness from the malt and some hints of caramel. Ends up smooth with both alcohol and hops.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2006
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.

Ungstrup (32172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2006
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.

harrisoni (16047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2005
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.

rlgk (15802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2005
Golden/orange, nice offwhite/yellowish head. Aroma from honey and fruit, with some nutty notes. Malty flavor, nuts and fruits, creamy and with some alcohol even if it is well hidden.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2005
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.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2005
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.
