1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Hazy and dark brown coloured with almost no head. Quite malty and buttery. Too much diacetyl for my taste.
Dark ruby reddish colour, with a fine beige head. Good lacing. A lot of caramel in the aroma, also some sweet fruits and roasted barley. Flavour contains lot of the same, malty, fruity, raisins and a bit hoppy. A well done easter brew! One of the best from Grebbestad. They can really make other things than pale lagers if they want to.Rune (13494) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2012
[Bottle from Systembolaget in Strömstad, Sweden]
500ml bottle shared with Finn. From e-beställning at Systembolaget. Firm, tan-coloured lacing-head covering a deep, ruby coloured body. Smell of dark fruits and dark caramel. Brittle caramel in flavour with recognizable herbal hops. Bittersweet, rounded ending. Well bodied. Pleasant with fine drinkability, and suitable in the summertime as well (Finns, Tromsø 23.08.2012).

Bottle from Systemet Strömstad. Deep ruby. Lots of malt, some rasted grain, a hint of burned toast, dry bitter finish. Fruity elements, too. Elegant beer, Way better than their standard range of lagers.

Bottled (thanks TM!). Reddish ambery colour with a mediumsized foamy beige head. Aroma is mild nutyness, some rye bread as well as mild sweet malts. Flavour is roasted malts along with some mild rye as well as mild chocolaty and dark dry fruity notes. Pleasantly balanced, and quite drinkable. Nisse666 (7966) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2009
UTS: Underbar krona, fina gardiner, dark ruby red
Doft: Ren choklad
Smak: Rostade mandlar, lite lätt oljig smak
Eftersmak: lätt men lång mörk svans
Jag trodde att det skulle bli årets bästa påsköl - efter att titta på vilka bryggerier som fanns med i startfältet och med tanke på utfallet från årets julöl... tyvärr! Mer choklad och frukt nästa år, tack.
