Bottled. Hazy brownish red colour with small beige head. Caramel malts, flowery hops and a bit salts in the aroma. Flavour is bitterness and salty hops. Quite "sharpedged" flavours in this one. Might need a bit of aging to settle?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2007 Bottled at Tegnérs Gömställe, Stockholm. Clear dark amber, rich firm head. Rich flowery hop aroma. Sweet and generously malty. Very hoppy and very flowery, somewhat yeasty. There is some biscuity malt underneath the immense amounts of flowery hops. Lingering very bitter finish. Perhaps not balanced, but good anyway.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(50 cl bottle at The Rover, Göteborg) Sweet and hoppy scent, some metal and green apples. Clear brown color, lasting creamy tan head. Dominant sharp bitter taste. Starts off with some smoke before it turns to the bitter side. The bitterness is too hard and sharp for me, not well balanced.
