rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2011
Draught at Ölrepubliken, Göteborg. Very nice amber beer with a lasting beige head. Toffee aroma, milky and with hoppy notes. Chocolate flavor, grassy and with metal notes. A bit on the thin side. TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - APR 7, 2011
Medium amber with a light haze, white head.
Malty nose with some yeasty notes, caramel, fudge, light chocolate, apricots, hops.
Dry, medium body, quite high bitterness, appropriately low CO2.
Malty taste, caramel, hops, yeast, and a faint earthy note (characteristic of many Ocean beers?). (2011-04-06) oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 19, 2011
Handbottled (from draught, thanks Kike B!). Copper colour with a small off-white head. Aromai is caramel, toffee, some fruity and floral notes along with mild raisins. Flavour is rather malty along with some fruits, raisins, wood and mild yeasty notes. sebletitje (10080) - 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.

Nicely balanced between sweetness and hoppiness. Some roasted and chocolate notes. Overall a good ale!

When pouring the beer, it has a red-brown color. Beige / white foam with large bubbles. The foam disappeared at a leisurely pace, leaving little thin track. The aroma gives quite roasted tones, malty with caramel. But even some grass and some bitterness with a little caramel aromas. A little smoke and thin hop aroma toward the end. Some lemon and grapefruit, I suspect. The taste gives pretty toasted notes of malt, hops tones feels fresh and creeps. But then comes the caramel again. A little grapefruit, apricot, a little apple. Some grass and some bitterness. Medium body. Carbonation is medium strong. The fluid is light and dry, but much butter feeling. Linnet (1834) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2016
coffee, floral, alcohol, bread, grass, perfume, roastiness is evident.
Copper colour, small beige head.
Mid-sweet, soft bite, salty.
Medium body, soft carbonation, long sweetish and roasty finish.
Well made, true to the English tradition.

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!
Bottle 50 cl from Systembolaget, on September 1, 2011
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.
Sample at SMÖF 2011. It poured a clear dark brown liquid. Smell and taste of dark malts and chocolate. Nice and easy to drink, but I got a feeling I would grow tired if I had a full 50 cl glas. Skinnyviking (9570) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 23, 2012
Draught. High creamy lasting white head. Clear ruby body. Mild berries caramel aroma. Surprisingly sweet and yet bitter berries caramel flavor with a low carbonation and a short aftertaste.
