gnoff (8291) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. BB 31 Mar 12, sampled on April 16, 2011
Clear dark reddish brown color, smallish to medium tan head. Sweet, malty, herbal and floral hoppy scent. Malty, mineral, hoppy taste that dies very fast. Moussy mouthfeel, medium bitterness to the dry and chalky side that is the only thing that lingers in this beer. Almost like sucking on a piece of dry wall.
An alcoholic touch starts to show when warming up.
Pretty good stuff, though the ABV is a bit too high to be drinking too much of this.

DSG (8199) - Tel Aviv, - NOV 13, 2010
Bottle. Clear deep reddish brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, biscuits, fruits and light earthy notes. Sweetish malt flavor with toffee, biscuits, caramel, fruits and a drier bitter finish with herbal, spicy and slightly earthy hops and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Not bad.

fidelis83 (2137) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Pours a clear, pale copper brown with a 3 finger, chunky, off-white head. Aroma is toffee, dry grass, citrus, caramel, toasted crusty white bread, heavy mineral water, cereal sweet red apple and a bit of earth. Flavor is biscuit, toast, buttery toffee, light citrus, caramel, lots of sweet crystal malt, big mineral notes and a little grainy malt. Palate is on the light side of medium bodied, slick and slightly sticky on the finish. Decent beer, tastes a little over sweet though, like it’s loaded with artificial sweeteners or stevia or something.
