2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml brown bottle, poured into a pint glass. Appearance is clear dark mahogany with a medium sized frothy beige head. Aroma of caramel and syrup loaf. Flavours of caramel, nutty notes and bread. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light-medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Overall good for a 3.5% ABV beer, but compared to the regular version this lacks body and is too light.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with red tinges and a cream-tan, fine-grained, medium head. Nose is roast grain, tea, dark fruit, and a touch of brown sugar. Mild on the tongue, with a smoky, dry round flavor; there’s a little dark fruit in there, but mostly it’s somewhere between strong tea and weak coffee. Clean enough on the finish. It’s an average bitter; nothing bad about it, but nothing memorable, either.

Malt-fruity taste, hints of nuts and mid-sweet caramel malts. Dried fruity backbone. Short roasted malty end. Thin to medium bodied. Worth buying and drinking(Tromsø 05.12.2014).

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Klar nøttebrun farge med en fin off white skumtopp. Noe risted malt og nøtter i aromaen sammen med noe fruktighet. Grei middels kropp med en mild sødme og noe bitterhet. Bra balandse til å være en 3,5% svensk butikk øl. Noe ristet malt, mye karamell, en anelse citrus hume og noe fruktighet. Absolutt drikkbart. Bedre enn mye annet ræl.
