On tap at Bishops ARms in Örebro. Fruity and yeasty smell, feels belgo. A note of smoke. Sweet taste with quite a high residual sweetness, also caramel. Hard to put a type on this beer, doesn’t feel like an IPA, more like a dark belgian. Not quite a bruin either. larsniclas (7187) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2008
Draught at 3 små rum.
Slightly hazy and golden/copper. Rather brief white head.
Very sweet and malty with fruity hoppiness in the aroma.
Fruity, citric and hoppy flavour with a lot of dry bitterness. ekstedt (6944) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2008
Draught at Tre små rum, Göteborg, Sweden. Hazy golden, small white head. Hoppy aroma with grape fruits and pine needles, and a solid fruity malt base. Very smooth with a delicate lingering bitterness.
Beer5000 (6672) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2008
On tap @ EBF. Almost clear, yellow golden body with a small white head. Aroma has a fine citrus impression. Flavor is fruity like grapefruit with note of lemon and a fine sharp bitterness. Well balanced IPA. Inbreak (6402) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 25.05.2013, tap @ HaandFestival:ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2013
Tiny shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral and fruity, dried fruits, almondcake, wet grain, grass, some hops. Taste is sweet, sugar, wet leafs, grass, bark, almond essence, hay. Longlasting bitterness, a little dry mouthfeel. Wouldn’t really call this a IPA.
Tap sample @ Haand Festival 2013. Light copper-hued body, small white head. Nose is nutty malts, red berries and hints of oranges and grass. Taste is sweet nuts, caramel, almonds, grains, grass, hints of peaches and resin. Low on bitter/sweetness integration; the two feels as if standing side by side rather than being integrated features of the beer. Also, it does taste a bit...strange, in search of a better term. Full body, medium carbonation. OK, but far from the best Närke can do. visionthing (5492) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 16, 2013
On tap at Haand ølfestival. Clear copper coloured with an off-white head. Moderate hoppy and fruity aroma agains a solid malty caramel background. Moderate sweet with a nice fruitiness and a balanced bitterness. Certainly a decent IPA, but not a favourite. (2013-05-25) Arve_Christian (5215) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2013
