3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London - thanks to one of the Swedes, I’m sure. Poure clear amber with a fine, creamy head. Sugary and bready malts in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with light toasted sugars, bread, modest dry caramel. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Some more dryness in the finish - which is welcomed - with light leafy bitterness, dirt, further dry caramel. Good offsetting bitterness. Decent marzen.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear copper in color. Big white head that stays for a while and leaves lots of lacing. Caramel malts and sweet bread in the aroma. Same goes for the taste, which in my opinion is way too boring. Won’t be buying again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle, as Gotlands Red October (Wisby is not mentioned on the label), from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 6.0%. Pale brown to copper colour, large off-white head. Pleasant malty aroma with hints of caramel and brown bread, also some hints of over-ripe red fruits. The flavour is also malty with distinct notes of caramel, but is not too sweet. Decent hops in the finish, medium bitter aftertaste. A nice beer which i might well buy again.
