Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2011. Red amber beer with a offwhite/beige head. Fruity, hoppy, berry, dried fruits aroma with some bitterness.Malty, fruity and leather flavour. Palme (4817) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2012
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a light cloudy brown-amber one with a small bubbly and sidesticking off-white head. On the aroma this is light malty-sweet, hoppy, fruity, some red berries and hints of red apples. Nice aroma! It has a average carbonation level and a light dry, yet oily texture. It’s surprisingly bitter this one. Also quite apply-fruity, and I don’t really get anything more in this one. Ends extreme astringent and mouthdrying - so much that it kinda ruins it a bit. 16.06.2012 mansquito (6815) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Wirstrom’s, Stockholm, tap: Pours a light amber with a white head. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is mellow, but comprehensive hops. There is not too much fruitiness, and it is also much lighter on the malts than your standard American Amber; instead, it is a more crisp ale. Leaves some aftertaste. Pretty good. stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2012
Nja, det här var kanske ingen favorit. Kroppen är stabil och bra men smaken och beskan något för torr och hård. Smaken flirtar lite med fruktighet och ’gräsighet’ men den når inte hela vägen fram. berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Half-inch off-white creamy head that settles as a robust film with some lacing. Clear amber colour. Enticing aroma of hops, fruit (grapefruit, pineapple, cherry), dust, almonds, caramel and hint of smoke. Medium body, lively yet soft carbonation. Taste is mostly dry, quite well balanced by a discreet fruity sweetness. Finishes with a rough bitterness that might need food accompaniment to take the edge off.

Bottle at home. Has a clear reddish amber colour with a medium light beige head. Fruity aromas of hops, berries, grapefruit, oak and dried fruit. A lot of hops in the flavours along with apricot, tropical fruits, sweet malt, leather and some roast. Soft and sparkly mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A good ale that reminds me of an IPA.

Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma is red berries, caramel, toffee, hints of pineapples and red apples. Nice. Taste is melon, red berries, straw and hints of bitter grass and pine. Parching mouthfeel, which draws it back a little. Still decent, all in all. tfredvik (2027) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2012
Dark amber body with an off-white, long-lived head, good lacing. Quite strong aroma with plenty of floral notes, this is like sitting in the middle of a meadow full of flowers! Also fruits, caramel and lightly roasted notes. Light to moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter finish. Not that strong flavours, but they are pleasant: flowers, fruits, caramel and faint citric notes. Smooth mouthfeel, soft to medium carbonation and a light dry finish. A nice and gentle ale.jookos (6973) - FINLAND - JUN 21, 2012

öms. Reddish. Clear. Malty, pines. Good bitterness. Feels soft and smooth, a bit thick also (for an ale). Nice, well hopped, ale. Good balance imo.
