3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nutty but sweet aroma that even hints at marzipan. Slightly nutty on the flavour too and finishes with a nice touch of bitter hops. Nothing over the top but a pleasant ale to sip.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2008 Bottle from Systembolaget. My notes on this beer were brief (that’s never a good sign). Very average bitter that gets lost in a crowd of similar versions. Malty more than hoppy, with a jammy earthy character.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. A murky mid brown coloured beer with an off-white ring of bubbles and some lacing. An earthy very English beer with some good hops and some fruity notes. There’s a slightly worrying tinny note, and obvious pasteurization, but it’s not too bad.
