Joakgust (1437) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2010
Bottle, 33cl - Clear golden beer with a small head. Aroma is malty with notes of scottish ale, german bock, caramel, metallic hops and peaches. Flavor is fruity with notes of peaches, tropical fruits, passion fruits and hops. Very, very nice. Thank you for this Einar.

ekstedt (6678) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2010
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear deep golden, medium white head. Bready and hayish malt aroma, with some floral and herbal hops. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Dry with a nice long bitterness. Very refreshing IPA-style english ale wich would have gained from some more aroma hops. Do not understand all the negative ratings though.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2010
(Bottle) Pours pale golden with a fast decreasing, off-white head. The aroma holds a nice blend of hay/grassy hops and white bread/straw-like malt. Orange juice and orange marmalade alongside hints of dried apricots and green apples also present. The nose is cleaner and less "canned fruit ester-ish" than your typical English Strong Ale. Hints of doughy yeast as well as honey and tulip. The flavour is light sweet and medium bitter. Tones of citrus, bread, straw, dry honey and apricot/dry pineapple juice alongside a grassy and floral afterbitterness. The mouthfeel is clean and light juicy with a near medium carbonation. Light wooden, too alcohol-ish finish. Medium bodied. Good malt and hop balance, but too alcohol driven in the flavour.

On cask at The Crystal Palace, Glasgow. Pours a blonde colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, passion fruit, mango and caramel. Similar flavours. Quite bitter with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Nice.

TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2011
Bottle @ home. Pours a pale, golden straw, with a slight haze and a light white head. Aroma is clean with a medium maltiness, balanced floral hop notes, and elements of lemon and grapefruit peel. Off-dry on the palate, medium bodied, maltiness more pronounced here than on the nose, citrusy hop tones come back, with a growing, quite pronounced but balanced bitterness. Alcohol comes through a bit too much in the aftertaste, though. Highly enjoyable session beer, albeit on the strong side. Quite true to the Harviestoun style. More of a Wrathchild than a Powerslave... (Rated on 2010-08-03.)
