3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased at systembolaget in Goteborg sometime in the middle of April, 2011. Overall, this is a very robust ale, with good body and lots of flavor that definitely favored the hoppy side.
Pours with a deep, dark amber color and a medium-sized off-white head. The lacing is very dense and sticky: the appearance is excellent.
The aroma is reminiscent of pine, fruits (plums perhaps), and a hint of caramel.
The mouth feel is somewhat creamy. The is taste is relatively complex: a bit herbal and fruity in the start, with a distinct bitterness in the finish that lingers on for a bit too long.
A very good ale and one that I would buy again.

Nice tasty little easter hen.
Unclear amber color with a fine off white head. Good intensity in the aroma. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Fruity, bready and hoppy flavor.

A clear bright red beer with a fluffy, quickly settling white head. Nose has a dry dusty attic style aroma with some mild herbal hop aromas. Taste is sweet with a fairly heavy bitterness to balance against it. Soft carbonation and rich palate. A decent, albeit somewhat dull beer.
