åsköl. Kanske passar till ägg?

"Easter beer" in Swedish is "Påsköl". "åsköl" translates to "thunder beer". "It might go well with eggs?"

The name Häklefjäll is a Swedish noa-noa for Hell.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The colour is brown-red, the two finger head is off-white.

The smell is filled with smoke. I come to think of Italian salami. Sour hints and a touch of band-aid. A bit too much smoke for me.

The taste is bold and very smoky, it is like chewing on smoked ham including the salty bits. Lots of anonymous bitter flavours and a fine sweetness. Some tart hints in the long lasting aftertaste as well as hints of egg and bullion (unami?) and heavily smoked ham/sausages.

The carbonation is medium strong; the bubbles are small. The liquid is a bit sticky.

Närke Kulturbryggeri seem to love smoke malt and this beer was more smoked than any other i had from them. A bit too much smoke for me... (696 characters)

Well, to begin with, Rauchbier isn't one of my favourite styles of beer. But I'll try my best bringing justice to it.

Dark-amber colour with a beige/white head.

The smell is smoked with some nice hop tones, a little bit of yeast in the smell too.

Tasted smoked (Well, it is a rauchbier) with some leathery and malty tones. A bit of sweetness and low bitterness.

Närke Kulturbryggeri is great indeed, but this is not one of my favourites. (442 characters)
