COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bulldogen Krut sniffade fram en unik sck Galaxyhumle frn Australien. En humlesort vi frmodligen var frst att anvnda i Sverige! Njut av mtet mellan den mrkrostade karaktren frn en kta Brown Ale och fylligheten frn den svenska jullstraditionen. Fr att maximera upplevelsen har vi adderat NelsonSauvin frn Nya Zeeland - en lyckad symbios!

Doft
Humlefruktig doft med inslag av ananas, apelsinmarmelad samt utprglad mrkrostad matarom som pminner om espresso.

Smak
Tydlig men balanserad beska med ptaglig maltfyllighet och eftersmak av kaffe och choklad.

ninecats (517) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle. Clear reddish brown, big beige foam, good lacing. Aroma is fruity with pine, malty breadish, swedish julmust. Taste is a mashup of bitter hops and malt, with more emphasis on the former, minimal cookie/nutty feel as usually found in a brown ale, but more hoppiness made out of grassiness and coffee in the finish, fairly dry. Light to medium body, medium carbo. Not the typical brown ale but clean made.

Marstonlad (797) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget, Stockholm. A brown color with a reddish tinge; frothy, handsome head. The aroma features both maltiness and hoppiness; caramel and bread from the former, pine and citrusy fruitiness from the latter. The balance is surprisingly slightly on hops, probably due to Nelson Sauvin. Taste confirms the expectations set by the aroma: this is definitely a hop-driven brown ale. Not much sweetness appears; instead, dryish, crisp bitterness pushes to the forefront with maltiness balancing. Piney, fruity hoppiness is complemented by bready, toasty malty notes. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth texture and a low to average carbonation. Original, crisp and tasty brown ale all in all.

Cimbasso (840) - - NOV 26, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2015 Sampled from a 33cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear, dark brown colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of vine fruits, molasses and booze. Taste is rich, like fruitcake soaked in brandy. Plenty of fruit - grapefruit, orange, raisins - and a good, hoppy, bitter finish. An excellent strong ale.

330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear dark ruby / brown, three-finger size tanned, creamy head, good lacing. Hoppy aroma, orange, apricot, grapefruit and caramel.

larsga (7375) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2015
Big beige head. Clear deep dark reddish brown body. Resiny tropical fruit aroma with chocolatey notes. Not bad, but the aromas clash. Dryish tropical fruit and caramel taste with meaty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry resiny grapefruit aftertaste with caramelly notes. Well. Its not a bad beer, but this combination doesnt work for me. (0.33l bottle, from Systembolaget Ljungskile.)

Dry, bitter for its kind and very refreshing. It's kinda light so set it early in a tasting. It's good and simple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lawger (275) - SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2014
From tap. Perfect session pale ale. Minerally aroma with iron, moderate hops and maltiness. The palate is full bodied and complex enough to be satisfying but not so much that it becomes cloying or unpleasant, even after several pints. Pleasant bitterness and maltiness lingering. I could drink this all night long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
