3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My first impression is Fruit. The initial sampling make me believe I’m trying an english bitter, and I like english bitter. But its flavor doesn’t linger like the real stuff. Not bad anyway. Have one!

Bottle from systembolaget, at home. Helsingborg, April 2012.
Caramel aromas, malt, sugar, some grains, pretty nutty and rich. Some dried fruit. Rich body, quite balanced and tasty, bready taste with burnt sugar and caramel. I actually didn’t find this to bad at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mahogany colour, big creamy off-white head. Rich malty aroma. Notes of nut and chocolate,
with an obvious but ‘fitting’ abv.
Full-bodied with a rounded mouthfeel. Feels well balanced, but does not linger. Some bitterness. I'm amazed...

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Before and after sampling everything in this beer was outstanding: stylish label with Easter cock, beautiful cherry colour (sending Cabernet & Co into second division), high rocky head of foam, rich fruity aroma. Lace was amazing: like a cobweb with similar sized cells. But the beer itself... I expected much more. The palate was flat and neutral (we are talking about 6% Easter beer!), clearly on the malt side but not really bock-like. A disappointment.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma has a hint of malt, wet rag... and metal? Clear dark copper colour, small head. Watery, but still malty flavour. Flavour of unmalted barley also.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a deep amber-hued brown body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is caramel, raisins, wort and hints of bread and straw. Taste is wort, bread crusts, caramel and hints of brown sugar and raisins. Medium body and carbonation. Quite all right malt beverage in the Swedish "must" tradition (wort beer with added sweetness, brewed seasonally).
