Very good indeed. Golden with white lasting head. Fruity nose from the hops. Lots of bitterness, but balanced with corresponding sweetness. Heaps if bitter grapefruit on the tounge. ekstedt (6755) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2011
Draught at SMÖF 2011. Clear golden, medium white head. Typical Närke fruity ester aroma with notes of plum, some floral hops as well. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with firm lingering bitterness. Another amazing quaffable Närke beer. 77ships (9698) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2015
Thx! for sharing. Sampled draft @ Borefts 2015. Day 1. Clear golden, little white head. Nose is oily weird herbal, forest herbs, spruce, light medicinal hops, touch boozy, spirit. Taste is some medicinal hops, sweet caramel, toffee, herbal hops, lots of grains, boozy. Thick, oily. Very unusual in many ways as most Närke beers. Almost medicinal hops, heavy herbal notes work oddly well with the very sweet base & alcohol. Very odd + challenging but ultimately successful. Vignale (3785) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2012
Cask, småbryggeriernas beer festival, Malmö. Big head from the lively fizzy ale. Big nose with tropical fruits ,passionfruits and grapefruit. Light body, dry almost tart mouth feel, nice yeast tones, lots of fruithy especially passiofruit and a long dry medium bitter aftertaste. An excellent APA. kermis (12870) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2011

Ar: resin, grapefruit, pineapple, slightly smokey, ceder, pine, citric, mango.
Ap: hazy golden colour, medium white head, lacing.
F: big bite grapefruit, resin, pine, citric, light notes of smoke and cedar, light sweet malts, long lingering finish.
T: great session beer! rarbring (2294) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2012
Aroma: The smell is very citric and forestry, pine and grass.
Appearance: The beer is light amber, pale copper, a white compact head leaving good lacing.
Taste: Starting sweet, loaf of bread character, then it is a citric explosion in your mouth, lime, lemon, grape, juice, peel and seeds!
Palate: Medium low carbonation, small bubbles, a medium body, rather refreshing feeling which ends in a long dry feeling.
Overall: This was a very citric beer, don’t know why, but I did not expect it.
