Clear copper color, dense tan head. Fruity, bitter, metallic, grainy, berry taste. Smooth yet a bit to the thin side mouthfeel. Bitter aftertaste. Fruity, berry, sweet scent. Medium bitterness.
I like it, not too much poking you for attention, just a nice smooth easy to drink, nice ale. Go get it!

Malty, sweet, candy, almond paste scent. Clear red color, off-white head. Malty, mineral, sweet tatse. Malty and mineral aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low to medium low bitterness.
Not as nice as the one I had on draught.
Bottle @ Rene’s house, courtesy of Nisse666. Reddish orange appearance with a bubbly tan head. Somewhat nutty, cola, brown sugar aroma. Rich toffee, brown sugar, caramel flavor with thick, prickly carbonation. sebletitje (10477) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2011
50cl bottle, courtesy of and shared with Gnoff.
Ambrée, col beige.
Arôme levure et cave avec un petit côté végétal d’asperge. Bizarre mais je n’ai pas trouvé un indice de cascade.
En bouche, malté et grillée, pointe de levure avec un petit qcq chose de différent. Douce allant presque sur une stout dans le style anglais, léger note de malt sucré et léger fruit.
Bouteille semble être mauvaise car je ne trouve pas là le profile annoncé.

Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a dark amber with a thin off-white head. The aroma is yeast, light fruit. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a big hop liqourice roasted malt palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. gyllenbock (10033) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2012
On tap at Bryggerifestival at Malmö Brygghus, April 2012.
Dark copper with a small head. Aroma of caramel, bread, some fruit and notes of roasted malt. About the same in the taste. Drinkable stuff.

(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 30 March 2011) Dark red colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, slightly fruity nose with notes of red fruit, caramel and hints of chocolate. Malty, fruity taste with dark fruit, caramel and a fairly dry finish with a mild, spicy bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Soft and rounded with a balanced, citric bitterness. Quite nice.

Bottle big thanks to Matt. Fresh laundry, ripe blackcurrant, red apple chocolate and oatmeal aroma: that’s an 8, easy. Dark ruby with a loose but persistent beige foam. Excellent juicy blackcurrant Ribena and hedgerow notes over solid husk, chocolatey and digestive malts. Really tasty; in fact, the best Swedish beer I’ve tasted to date.
