Dark amber with a large head.
Nice aroma of fruits, citrus, caramel, grass and pine. Fruity taste with caramel and some burnt notes. Medium body, long aftertaste. Very drinbkable but the aroma was better than the taste.
Bottle. Creamy off-white good mostly lasting head. Amber colour. Moderate malty and hoppy slightly smoky aroma. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Oily palate. Vignale (4063) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2011
Stilmässigt en ganska snäll amerikansk red ale. Humlearomatisk, måttlig beska, friskt men ändå en liten fruktkolasötma. Bra balans mellan malt och humle.

It had a clear amber liquid with a fluffy dirty beige head that left allot of foam on the side of the glass.
Grassy hops, citrus, malt and some fruitiness. Do I smell oranges?
Grassy hops, malt, some fruits and flowers and that orange flavour is there again. Some spiciness but not enough to say what it is.
Medium smooth with a bit of sting to it. Medium body.
Even though the description says American style ale my first thought was British. It’s moderately hopped with a fruity and flowery flavour. But not fruity like many American hops, more like some of the British hops. Anyway, leaving that subject. I think this is a drinkable ale but it feels like it’s missing something, the flavours aren’t really mixing as well as I would have liked. There is some spices here but not sure if it’s from hops, yeast or malt or if it’s actually added spices. Either way it’s not distinct enough so that I can put my finger on it. But that’s not a complaint as I like beers like that, a bit mysterious.
Now to the question of what to eat with this. I reckon it’s intended for the Easter feast but I can’t say for sure if it would work. Will have to try during Easter holiday.

Deep amber brown color, huge beige head. Berryish (strawberry, cranberry), caramel and yeast. Medium-bodied. Front is suprisingly watery, then licorice, caramel, hops and some alcohol. Quite American.
Bottled (thanks omhper). Amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is fruity, crisp malty with some mild red berries and some mild grassyness. Flavour is fruity, floral and grassy and quite crisp malty. A bit too hoppy for my tastes.
