Deep brown ale but not as sweet or cloying as many of this type. Fruity hops give it aroma and bite. Almost refreshing. And not at all bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - APR 16, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a deep amber, with an off-white head. Floral aroma, quite spicy, malt, light toast, lots of fruits, hops, orange peel, caramel, spruce. Off-dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Fruity taste, caramel, malt, light toast, hops, earth, slightly thin, dries out in the finish. (2012-04-14)
