3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Bishops Arms Avenyn, Gothenburg. The beer looks nice in the glass, with a clear, copper-colored body and a small, beige head on top, leaving nice lacings. Citrusy hoppy aroma with roasted malt. Some piney notes too. Roasted malt makes a nice background for citrusy, piney hops giving a moderate bitterness. Even though there’s a good sweetness in the beer, it feels quite dry in the mouth. Full body. It has a long finish with citrus and pine dominating. Really pleasant and quaffable. (080709)

Flaske. Virkelig imponerende skum på en brun øl. Dejlig frisk duft umiddelbart men bagved kan de brændte lidt tungere dufte godt anes. Dejlig smag med et godt bid. Superlækker brown ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Nice dark amber color; big head. The aroma is not too strong, some malt and hop, light aroma of coffee grounds. Good body, good malt and caramel flavor, with some bitter toffee too, and quite high bitterness. Very well done Brown Ale, the hop is also a bit fruity and resiny (but covered by the caramel).
