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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Couleur ambrée aux reflets orangés, apparence nuageuse et brouillée sous une abondante mousse écumeuse et plutôt persistante. Arômes de macédoine, de DMS, extrêmement végétales et levurés. De timides empreintes de malt rôti, de foin, de caramel et de fruits foncés conduisent à une amertume finale semblant ainsi provenir des levures. Une pauvre interprétation du style.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
