UPDATED: APR 12, 2009 At the tasting session by Joes. An amber colored beer, with a beige head. The aroma of caramel and toffee and some spices. The taste is sweet caramel, with tones of spices. There is some hop. It’s sparkling. It has a light bitter after taste. Svesse (8743) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2008

Bottled. Medium head forms a nice lace and is very pale beige in colur. Liquid is beautiful mahogany brown and clear. Malty aroma is somewhat sweet and has decent hops. Also dried sweet fruits like plum or raisins and nuts. Has quite the same aromatic caramel, almost honey-like sweet elements as many brown ales. Though sweet, still quite fresh. Oily and smooth mouthfeel with increasing bitter dryness towards the finish. Enjoyably rich, "clean" and fresh overall impression. Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of oh6gdx. Clear, amber golden with a dense, beige head. Malty aroma with some caramel. Quite full-bodied with a very solid malt base and notes of burned caramel. The finish is dry with a light bitterness. Lovely. 160408
