Bulldogen Krut sniffade fram en unik säck Galaxyhumle från Australien. En humlesort vi förmodligen var först att använda i Sverige! Njut av mötet mellan den mörkrostade karaktären från en äkta Brown Ale och fylligheten från den svenska julölstraditionen. För att maximera upplevelsen har vi adderat NelsonSauvin från Nya Zeeland - en lyckad symbios!

Humlefruktig doft med inslag av ananas, apelsinmarmelad samt utpräglad mörkrostad matarom som påminner om espresso.

Tydlig men balanserad beska med påtaglig maltfyllighet och eftersmak av kaffe och choklad.

A very good tasting Winter Ale suits perfect both at dinner time and as a nice drink in front of the TV.

larsga (6809) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2015
Big beige head. Clear deep dark reddish brown body. Resiny tropical fruit aroma with chocolatey notes. Not bad, but the aromas clash. Dryish tropical fruit and caramel taste with meaty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry resiny grapefruit aftertaste with caramelly notes. Well. It’s not a bad beer, but this combination doesn’t work for me. (0.33l bottle, from Systembolaget Ljungskile.)

Dry, bitter for its kind and very refreshing. It's kinda light so set it early in a tasting. It's good and simple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska från SB. Mer annanas än den vanliga grapen. Fräsch. Fin bland de tyngre. Fruktig. Bra beska som kontrast mot julmaten.

From tap. Perfect session pale ale. Minerally aroma with iron, moderate hops and maltiness. The palate is full bodied and complex enough to be satisfying but not so much that it becomes cloying or unpleasant, even after several pints. Pleasant bitterness and maltiness lingering. I could drink this all night long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foffern (1465) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle at home. One year old. The colour is slightly hazy reddish brown with a nice, creamy, ivory head. Fruity aroma with spices, fruity hops, pine apple, leather and pine. Hops also pretty present in the flavour with orange peel, grapefruit, leather, berries and heather. Has a slick mouth feel and a balanced bitterness. A surprisingly hoppy beer but is balanced and easy drinking.

Flaska från SB. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Småfruktig doft med en del karamell. Lätt ton av sötlakrits i smaken.

djoeye (2580) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2014
Copper red body, tan big head, fine crocheted lacing. Aroma; mild caramellic resin, sweet citrus peels, tart, caramel malts, dusty floral hops, spices, hints of dough. Taste; sweet resin, hops, herbal resiny malts, hazelnut, walnuts, prune peels, moving towards a good balance with roasted malts and nutty and hopsy stuff in finish. Feels nice, ok body and nice carbonation. Clean and good. Probably you’ll need two of this, one for after dinner or with desserts and nuts, and then one for evening sipper. This ale has some porter qualities included. Good and clean brew. [33cl spec.brown bottle, 6.2%abv, BB25092015, B@Systembolaget Storheden Luleå 2€]
