More hops in the flavor with pine and grapefruit. Some wood, dried fruit, caramel, roasted malt and rye bread as well. Slightly sour. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a light to medium bitterness. A tasteful and hoppy English ale. Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2008

(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of joergen. Pours an almost clear amber with a dense, yellowish head leaving a neat lacework. Somewhat rustic and dusty hoppy nose - probably from the English hops. Medium-bodied with some caramel and fruit and a light underlying acidity. Some hops in the finish. 250308 olsvammel (7220) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2010
Dark amber liquid with a medium sized fluffy dirty white head that left chunks of foam on the side of the glass.
Grassy hops, caramel, malt and fruits.
Caramel, malt, bread, fruits and citrus.
Smooth mouthfeel with just a little bit of sting, creamy, medium thick body and low carbonation.
Probably the best Easter beer so far. Good balance between bitterness and sweetness. It also had a noticeable hoppy and malty character.
Fairly enjoyable but I suspect this isn’t a great match with the Easter food. The bitterness isn’t very intense but I got a feeling it would clash with the salty Easter food, specifically anything containing dill. SaintMatty (7362) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2011
