UPDATED: DEC 8, 2016 @ Eddan 16-12-3: Mycket liten doft och en ensformig smak av bränd kola. Mycket besk i eftersmaken. Ännu en blaskig öl från Ocean

At last they got this bottle in his hand. Lovely design of the bottle and press are very nice, very blue with a little clean and little snow. A bottle I think people can easily pass on the shelf if you do not know what you want, but modern. Now it only in glass: The first thing I respond to that was to cap barely sat at, .... machine errors? ... And what it had done to the beer? But as I said, I began to pour it up and noticed that the carbon dioxide level was a little low, (probably due to the cap) They had to work hard to get up an AK so small foam crown that was white and fine. The foam disappeared almost as quickly as a paycheck so he can not taste the foam. The color was rather dark brown with a dark lager. Now I began to be more specific about what had happened to the beer, the poorly fitting cap had trickled out a lot of carbon dioxide so there was anything left button. But would this affect the taste ?? Scent - 8p Smells toffee, caramel, malty sweet lure of bread and a light grassy humlighet. There are some hidden scents produced by fruit, apricot, orange, then it’s something sweet hidden, it can be a little loaf syrup and spices. Some malt aroma arrive. Taste and Mouthfeel - 9p At first sip it starts quietly, but then comes the lovely rich maltighet comes against one with a distinct bitterness. But it also tastes of butterscotch / toffee, fruity units will muffled by orange and apricot. You can also find some crisp bread and spices, slight hint of cloves and black currant in the end. Good strävja. Juligt worse, a sleek and stylish maltighet balanced bitterness. Must be a perfect beer to food
