UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 Review from memory for personal records. Had a malt dominance, but cannot recall full tasting notes. I’ve written 4/5 in my 1001 Beers guide, and whilst this seems a little high, I will honour my original rating.

Grumbo (4263) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2017
Bottle, local supermarket, from backlog. Poured dark amber to pale brown in colour with a small just off-white head. Aromas of hop, fruit, caramel, bread and light floral notes. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Medium body, slight oily and watery texture, soft to average carbonation. Better than it’s replacement.

From old tasting notes. Originally labeled as Suffolk Extra Ale. Copper red color. Rocky beige head. Nice floral hop aroma. Dryish toasted malt flavor with a hint of spruce and spicy hops.

Bottle from old backlog notes. Pours a hazy orange amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor had sweet malts, toffee, caramel, aged fruits with mild bitterness to the finish. A tick is a tick.

Backlog. Can from Systembolaget. Caramamelly and bready with some dough. Decent, but that’s about it.
