Hazy deep amber beer, big pale cream coloured head. The head has a very unusual strawberries and cream taste! Palate is smooth and slightly soft. Sweet malt, some lactose. Slightly resinous tangerine, sweetish. The strawberries and cream follow from the head - 5256 hop? Smooth finish with strong bitter aniseed aftertaste. Very unusual. Like it!

Draught at Söder om Småland, Malmö, 7.1% ABV
Cloudy amber color with creamy head. Aroma of fudge, nice bit suspicious. Smooth mouthfeel, caramel flavor, some fudge, correct bitterness with some late hop resins; it’s good how the elements are blended together here.
Interesting.
