gyllenbock (9846) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2012
Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget in October 2012.
Slightly hazy light amber with a small head. Aroma and taste of hops, yeast, apples, light spices and with some notes of vegetables. Also a touch of wood. Light mouth feel. Drinkable but I did except a little more. Tjoxen (173) - SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2012
Pours dark copper. Aroma of strawberry, caramel malts. Taste of some herbs, caramel and strawberry. Wonder if mine was bad having all this strawberry aroma and taste. Its a bit flat, but considering the strength that is expected. Light body. Short bitter finish. finol (3500) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2012

0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Reddish amber color. Sweet toffeish and caramelly aroma with yellow raisins and perhaps cardamon or coriander. Dryer taste with raisiny caramel, toffee and mild woody spiciness (clove?). Spiciness is very restrained, which is nice but there is too much caramel for my taste. brnandersen (4109) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2013
