COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

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

Smak
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.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 330 ml bottle. Clear, deep amber body with a small beige head. Not strong, but pleasant aroma of citric fruit and caramel malt. Flavor is light malty, refreshing citric fruity, nice bitterness. Medium body with a fruity aftertaste. Nice and pleasant.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle. It’s an almost clear one, amber to brown in color and with a finger-thick beige head on top. The aroma has caramel, citrus peel and pine cones, the hops doing the largest percentage of the work. It’s bitter and citrusy on the palate, with a light caramel maltyness. Full body, pleasant carbonation. The finish is bitter and fruity, with malts in the back. A beer that lacks a bit on complexity, but it’s sure a decent one anyway. 140207

ClubGonzo (4021) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep coppery amber body with a small white head. Nose is wet grass, caraway-ish herbal tones, caramel and hints of straw and white pepper. Taste is caramel, sweet bready malts, straw, mild strawberries, biscuits and hints of wet grass. Medium body and carbonation. OK, but not very impressive.

Palme (3365) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2014
0.33l bottle. This is a clear really good looking deep raw amber colored one and it has a super lacing medium sized beige head. On the nose I get a nice light sweet, perhaps a bit of roasted caramel, malty goodness and a little bit of rye bread. Not to extreme but definitely nice enough. It actually tastes a bit pilsner-ish. Light oily in the mouth and it has a below average carbonation level. Quite nutty yeasty this. It has a little bit of cold coffee bitterness with a soft metallic aftertaste. Mild, a bit blend and even a bit boring. 13.11.2013
