UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 First rating
Draught at Ölrepubliken during "Närkevecka", on February 27, 2013
Hazy golden color, fairly big lasting cream colored head. Sweet, floral, summer meadow, weeddy flower scent after rain, bubblegum, curious and unusual, though not bad, scent. Sweet, herbal, floral, sugary, flower stems, some red berries, dew or rain infused meadow character taste. Sweet, herbal, bubblegum, floral aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, frairly moderate co2 level. Pretty low bitterness.
Since "Älgört/Älggräs" (Meadowsweet) was a farily common herb to use in flavoring of beer in sweden before hops became common this is an extra interesting beer for me. I now feel I want to pick some and make a beer of my own in this "old style" Swedish beer.
Uncommon but very nice and interesting scent and taste indeed.
After a while getting used to the first impressions I pick up loads of cinnamon on both and scent and taste that I didn’t get at first.
Draught at Bishops Arms Järntorget, on June 7, 2013.
Hazy honey color, fluffy white head. Floral, perfume, sassafras, fresh and nice scent. Fresh, perfume, floral, summer meadow after some rain and then sun taste. Floral, sassafras aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Very very nice, especially the scent, and I feel again I want to brew something similar for a homebrew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft @ Bishops Arms Järntorget, Göteborg.
Couleur dorée pâle, col blanc fin.
Arôme est vraiment subtile et original dans l’usage de la reine des prés qui ajoute un bouquet somptueux fleuri, herbacé, de pétale avec une pointe de douceur. Le tout rappelle ce côté sassafras utilisé dans les root beer américaines.
Palais présente un fleuri superbe avec ce côté sureau, bourgeon, pétale. Le tout conserve un petit côté doux avec un côté malté caramel arrivant en fin de bouche. Une expérience unique qui fait penser aux grandes régions sauvages et prairies et sous-bois du nord de la Suède

On tap at temple, pours hazy orange with last creamy head and nice lacing. Awesome appearance. Flavor is eucalyptus, root beer bark, Christmas tree, mooseberries, plum, fig, mothball executives, and nice malts. Medium bodied. This one surprised me after seeing most of the ticks.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Borefts 2012 // One of the more ’special’ Närke brews. Apparently moosegrass is the special herb that I was getting, I knew that this had to have some kind of Swedish unique herbs that I have never heard off but obviously couldn’t guess what it was. Is that even like eatable? Bright hazy golden with a decent neatly lacing white head. Smell is quite herbal, hard to pinpoint what, it is moosegrass apparantly but strong sharp vaguely familiar herb but you cannot pit your finger on. both sharp and sweeter qualities blended with some sweeter lemon. light sweet grains. Taste is as someone pointed out - indeed - huge jasmine,.sweet citrus, heavy herbal, yeast, spices, lemongrass and lemon zest. bitter in a spice way. Light easy to drink, one weird session beer, it such a weird flavor but works at the same time - hard to say what to do with this one....
