look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The colour is amber; the liquid is a bit hazy. The high airy head is airy and yellowish. Some lacing.

The smell is hoppy with citric flavours, fruity apricots and some rye bread, toffee/butter, a fine bitterness, hints of yeast and hay.

The taste is fresh with a malty start. There is a fine dry crisp bitterness in the background. It evolves into a very British malty flavour with notes of dark bread, salty crackers and a hint of pine. The aftertaste got a descending bitterness with some dried fruits, butterscotch, peanuts and pumpernickels.

The carbonation is medium strong; the bubbles are medium sized too. The liquid is light but not watery.

Bottle at Oliver Twist in Stockholm. From notes.

A - Poured with a hazy copper body and a one finger creamy eggshell coloured head. Mild carbonation. Good white cap of retention and average lacing. Good.

S - Hopyy and nice fruity notes with a toasty malty character for balance. I get some hay as well.

T - Bready and well balanced again. Proper ESB with hop presence obvious.

M - Medium body with light to medium carbonation. Very clean with a bitterness in the finish.

O/D - I could have a few of these. Proper ESB balance and a nice abv for sessioning. Tasty but not a sipper.

A: Lovely hazy amber with brown hues. The head is rather small, but compact and tan. Nice lacings.

S: Nice buttery sweetness to the roasted malt. Lots of hoppy fruityness, but also a healthy dose of bitterness.

T: Malty, sweet caramell, roasted. Then there is that lovely fruityness; citric. Bitter hops.

M: Long bitter aftertaste. Body is medium, and very smooth and buttery. Carbonation is moderate.

O: This is my first beer from Skebo and all I can say: when can I get my hands on another one?

This is a local brewery for me and hence i feel the need to support them by buying their beer :)

A: Golden / Amber with a small white head on top.

S: Aroma of roasted malts, hay, fruits, fudge.

T: Caramel, Flowers, Grain, Orange, Metal.

M: Fresh and very drinkable with a nice crisp bitterness at the end. This is a session beer for sure.

This is the best beer i've tried from Skebo Bruksbryggeri yet. Very drinkable and tastes great. Recommended!
