omhper (22619) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2003
Bottled. Pale bronze with rich, stable head. Intense flowery hop aroma. Sweet and bold, yet with watery mouthfeel. Feels like a strong ale with added water. The finish provides a small blast of flowery hop bitterness, but on the whole this is a disappointing effort froma usually good brewer.

Getreidig-malziger Antrunk, etwas wässrig. Âb dem Mittelteil unauffällig, minimal hopfig, etas herb, getreidig, aber nichts sticht wirklich hervor. Die Hopfigkeit wird zum Abgang stärker, dort aber wird das Bier wässrig. Ausdruckslos. Test vom 30.11.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,8,9,7,10,7

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2004 Bottled
Very welcoming hoppy aroma. Nice lacing starts almost yellow. Colour is copper almost amber. Flavour starts as lightly hoppy but finishes quite quickly. Gives weak but tasty hoppy aftertaste. Very drinkable. (7/4/6/3/13 3.3)
Re-rate, draught:
Hazy amber with creamy and steady white head. Sweet floral aroma. Watery, sweet malty, slightly herbal and grassy. Too thin. (5/3/5/2/10 2.5)
