2.88/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Wisby Sleepy Bulldog Summer Pale Ale pours a fulvous colour along with a latte- (ight-light-brown-to-white) toned crown. The crown in question tend to have a structure similair to that of a hefty pile of beluga caviar, in a matter of seconds this is diminished to be and as it dissolves the bubbles grow bigger with lacing aplenty. Continually, a medium high amount of small bubbles float towards the surface.

Smell: Some citric notes heavily interspersed with a mild tone of diacetyl. The hops are slightly floral and grass-like as well, but pretty much stay dormant until the very end where they appear in a moderate fashion.

Taste: Most of all a diacetyl with an acrid 'n' acid combo which occasionally takes on a lime-like and zesty role. Lingering bitterness, not all that strong but all the more persistent. The diacetyl tend to transform and lean towards the sweeter end of thing.

Mouthfeel: Way too thin viscosity, the medium-high carbonation however adds some well needed action in to the game.

Drinkability: Not all that bad, but all too weak to peak any real interest. Needs to be more "chunky" (yeah, I know, excellent definition) and "punchy". Power to the people? Eh, why bother, if there's anything that needs more power and energy it's this beer, for it is sleepy indeed...

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

The colour is brass, the liquid is clear. The high head sinks down to a thick uneven lid while leaving lots of lacing on the glass.

The smell is hoppy with a mild bitterness. Dried fruits, leather, hints of smoke and band aids. Rather unclean I think.

The taste is hoppy with citric notes (grape fruit, lemons, bitter oranges). Some notes of leather and bitter herbs. A light malty sweetness with a hint of cookies. Medium body. The aftertaste got clean bitter flavours, some candy sweetness and a touch of alcohol.

The carbonation is strong; the liquid is light.
A little too much odd off flavours, light body and a bit too sharp carbonation for me.

33 cl brown short-necked bottle with a green and yellow label. There's a pic of a bulldog.

A: Pours deep golden with a medium large, a bit uneven white head that sets pretty quickly leaving nice lacings.

S: Floral and bitter hops up front, citric and slight piney nose. Caramell malt.

T: Unbalanced. Nothing like the smell led me to belive. Sweet malt, floral hops but all flavours are faint.

M: Thin body and medium carbonation. Aftertaste stays for a little while.

D: A strange beer. It looked and smelled like a really nice APA but when it hit my lips i tought it was a lager or something. Watery and faint.

Rather dark yellow color, a slightly off-white head, that leaves lot's of lacing.

Very much american hops in the smell, grape, pine needles, a bit of green soap.

A small dark sugar sweetness, mostly acidity, lime and grape, the bitterness is grape peel and a alkaline metallic presence.

Medium carbonation, small bubbles, a bit coarse.

A bit unbalanced, the bitterness was not really pleasant.
