Bottle. Unclear dark orange body. with a small white head. Orange grapefruit and malty aroma. Sweet at first, like berries, ending with dry hoppy bitterness.

yespr (36990) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours amber, almost clear with some light brown and quickly disappearing head. Clearly carbonated. Aroma is hop and fruit, some yeast. Malty caramel taste with yeast elements (Svaneke taste). Soft taste given by the caramelly malt and fruity hops. Reminds a bit about Tuborg Classic Gylden but has the distinct Svaneke taste to it.

Ungstrup (31426) - 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.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy amber golden with an off-white head. Fat, malty aroma with some caramel. Quite a full and rich body with sweet caramel, roasted malt and some overripe fruit. Subdued bitterness. A lovely, juicy Bock - but sorely underrated. 040107

joergen (24419) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2005
Bottled. Amber colour with a small white head. Sweet aroma with lots of malts and lactic acid. Sweet flavour of malts, almost no bitterness. Typical Svaneke beer with infection and lots of malts. Thanks ToolHead for sharing.

oh6gdx (23671) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 25, 2008
Bottled. Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity and has some yeasty notes in it. Flavour is fruits, caramel, hay and some mild hints of fudge. As it warms up it gets some slight grassy notes too.

Bottled. Clear amber, rich firm head. Lots of toffee lastng from aroma to finish. Medium sweet and medium bodied. Soft and mild with low bitterness. A warming, caramelly one-flavour beer.

Pre GBBF tasting at Chris and Ruth’s. Dusty bottle from the Chris O archives. Clear amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Sweetish malts, some cream. Mild floral bitterness. Light dried fruits. Light finish. Fine!

harrisoni (15792) - 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.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 18, 2010
Bottle. Slightly hazy body, golden-orange in color, and topped by a nice off-white head. Fruity nose, some caramel. A bit weak maybe, but pleasant. Full-bodied with a touch of warming alcohol. The commercial deScription mentiones nuts, I don’t think I would have sensed without reading it, but it’s there. Malty sweetness and some caramel too. Sweet, caramel finish. A decent doppelbock, but it’s a bit weak in both aroma and flavor, definately not competing with the best German species. 100618
