On-tap at Brogatan, Malmö. Quite expensive but everything else was boring.

Looks pale yellow, smallish flat head. Like you'd expect, I guess. Smell is hinting on a bitter beer. Taste is great, even though the beer is a bit too fizzy for the subtle bitter tones. It's also a bit more sweet than usual for a british bitter. Agree with some of the other reviewers that this is better described as a best bitter. When the fizziness is gone towards the end of the beer the tastes really get out there and compliments it very nicely. Otherwise, an easy-to-drink, fresh and lovable beer I'll be hoping to enjoy more of this spring.

The beer is clouded dark yellow, has a modest white head that leaves lacing.

The smell is weakly citric and peary.

The taste starts by triggering the "crayfish-and-dill"-center, then some lemon and grape-fruit, a grass bitterness.

Medium carbonation, a small body, the texture is slightly coarse and has a long nice dryness.

A good fresh beer with a distinct bitterness.

The colour is orange-gold; the liquid is a bit hazy. The finger thick yellowish head leaves some fine lacing.

The smell is bitter with hoppy hints of wood, butterscotch and fresh fruits.

The taste is bitter (in an English way). Lots of hops: Fresh fruits and chemical wax and toffee. Flour? Some sweet malt balances the flavours. The aftertaste is medium bitter with notes of flour, honey, dough and cookies.

The carbonation is a little strong for the taste (maybe just an improper pour?). The liquid is light, but not thin.

More of a "best bitter" than an "English bitter". Anyway, I think this is a good session ale.

A: Yellowish golden with a nice head and plenty of lacing.

S: Grain, Caramel, Fruit and some hops.

T: Malty caramel, Grain, Butterscotch, Bread, Fruit.

M: A very balanced beer with lots of taste and a pleasant but subtle bitterness at the end.

This is a good bitter and also a great sessionbeer. This will be my standardbeer for this summer i think. Nice!
