COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
A classic beer of true quality, Spooks Ale is characterised by its huge biscuity malt palate, derived from three traditional roasted barley malts used in this brew, giving a glorious deep red hue. The excitingly complex malty flavours are wonderfully balanced by a huge citrusy, hoppy bitterness and aroma from a particularly fruity hop added at four stages in the brewing process.

Bronsfrgad l med ett smutsvitt skum, som lgger sig som en grddbakelse ovan drycken. Doftar vldigt fint, dr karamell, rda br och ljus sirap str i fokus. Smaken r tyvrr inte alls av samma kaliber. Samma som i aromen, men bara inte lika bra. Torr eftersmak.

Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2012
Light brown color, tinted head. Flavor of caramel and toastednuts, figs and malt. Not much bitterness. The brewmaster seem to have been a bit to cautious and not added enought of just about anything. Spook ale becomes a promise, but not much more.

Kopparfrgad l med smutsvitt skum. Doft av malt, ljust knckebrd, mrk frukt och kryddighet. Mycket av detta terkommer i smaken. En stram och torr avslutning.

KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2012
Lovely malt, bisquity, as the labesl says. I thought this was filled with fruit and spices, but it is an old fashioned beer crafted with hops and malt. Clear amber color. Bittersweet, full of flavour. Englighs hops, English malt. Id try this with a curry. A pleasant surprise. Bottle from Systembolaget.
