Pour is transparent copper with tan head. Nose is grain, bread crust, fair amount of malt, sweet caramel, grassy resinous hop. Taste is bread crust, faint dough, sticky malt, sweet caramel. Hops are fading, pine and resin with a strong herbal grassy hop in the finish. Bitterness lingers on the heavy carbonation and a slightly syrupy body.

Served on-tap in Stockholm at Oscar Twist.

Appearance is amber with a one finger head. This English bitter has a nose with pine, caramel, hops and grass. Drinking this bitter and I taste bread, grapefuit, malts and a good amount of sweetness. Its` mouthfeel is medium with a dry, bitter aftertaste, but one that is pleasant. It is a very easy drinking bitter and one that you could quaff a few of in a sitting with still having your wits about you.

Sampled this beer from a bottle well chilled in a tulip glass.

A: Got an amberish clear color, pouring it out of a bottle into the glass gives it a nice little foam head, spinning the glass gives it lots of small carbonation bubbles.

S: The smell is very pleasent, it got a malty tone with some smokiness and hints of sweet notes too. If you have tried other beers from Nynäshamn you will definitely recognize the smell from the malts used.

T: The malty tones comes real nice, the smokiness found from smelling the beer is in the taste as well and grows larger turning into a nice bitterness. As with the smell you will also recognize this as a Nynäshamn brew from the malty tones.

M: Nice small carbonation giving you that great thrilling feel on the tongue. Leaves you with a little bitterness at the end.

O: A great bitter with the recognizable malty and little smokey notes that Nynäshamn often gives you.

Bedarö Bitter, ABV: 4.5%.
500 ml bottle, 28.20 SEK at Systembolaget.

A: The liquid is golden with orange tones. The head is slightly off-white and leaves smaller remains in the glass.

S: A nose with a fair share of American hops, notes of apricots and citrus fruits (like mandarins and grapefruit), and some malt and toffee in the background.

T: Bitter flavours of fruity and floral hops, with hints of pears, apricots, pine needles, roasted malt, hard rye bread and butter.

M: Big bitterness, medium-sized body and soft carbonation - a great, drinkable mixture for beer in my world.

O: An English bitter with a nice touch of American hops. A really good session beer, that also works well with (for example) a big juicy steak. Good times.

Poured from a 50cl bottle into a goblet.

A- Amber color with no head just a few bubbles around the edges.

S- Little aroma, mostly just a metallic nose

T- banana/clovey maltiness w a hint of hoppy bitterness. But really hollow in taste. I called it metallic hollowness. It left me wondering if that was all the beer had to offer. Really missing balance in flavor.

M- nicely carbonated - nothing amiss with the mouthfeel

O- This beer was very flat and hollow in flavor for me. Obviously it should be somewhat of a session beer given its style, but I didn't even want to have a second session - if that tells you anything.

This is not a bad bitter at all. I got this bottle from a collegue who goes to Sweden every year for holidays. Thanks Diana!

Poured in my Struise glass the beer is copper coloured with a big white head. Too bad there is almost no carbonation.

You can smell the fruity hops ans i also smelled some spices and banana. Good drinkable beer.

On tap into a pint glass at Black & Brown.

The beer pours a super dark and clear gold with good head and lacing. Nice pour...The aroma is super malty, way to sweet for my liking, almost like there was high fructose corn syrup...Not a huge fan of the taste sweet with an off esb esque bitterness, not bitter from hops.

This beer was recommended to me by two different bar tenders so they must like it here. I don't think its anything special.

Pours beautifully. Frothy thick crème head that stays. Nose is....beautiful. Nice spicy, hoppy, bitter thing going on. Flavor is quite nice. I love when I have a beer for the first time and the first sip turns into a gulp which turns into me downing at least 20% of the whole thing in one shot. Slight sweet tone rests over a bitter body. Man. This is one nice beer.

An amber clear beer, that pours with an off-white, rather small, head that leaves some lacing.

The smell is, actually, citric hops, grape-fruit, sweet bread-like nuances, some bitter aromas.

The taste is dominated by the bitter hops, and some citric nuances as well, bitter orange but with a faint sweet caramel sugar taste. Well-balanced and a long remaining bitterness.

The carbonation is medium, and the beer has a nice dry finish.

This is a really good bitter, more citric than expected possibly. A standard ale in my beer cellar.

A golden beer, very nice appearance with great foam sitting on top of the beer, notify that the foam goes quickly from 2 finger to ½ after serving.
Smell is excellent and its easy to drink. Can warmly be recommended. From last year on, this brew is now on the regular part of "Systembolagets" regular list. Around a 100 stores has this beer. Its also exported to a couple of countries including the US. Please, go find it! As everything else from this brewery this beer is money worth spent...!

A: This beer pours amber into the glass, with a small white head that dissipates a little to soon.

S: Malt hits your nose at first, then there is hops (I'm guessing Cascade and some other hops), fruit and a slight smell of smoked ham!?

T: In the beginning there is hops, and only hops, both bitter and floral. After the first "shock" there is fruit and some caramell to this very dry beer. It's very fresh.
The aftertaste is long with great bitterness.

M: Slightly creamy and dry.

D: Great hops, if you're into hops this is a must!

Bottle: Poured a light copper color ale with medium size foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry English hops with notes of lightly sweet caramel malt. Taste is also a nice mix between some caramel malt with a dry lightly hoppy finish. Average body with OK carbonation. Not the most complex beer out there but still enjoyable

Pours a copper color with a large white head. It lays down after a while, but remains until the beer is finished.

Smell is malty, fruity and hoppy. Actually, the first thing I noticed was some wheat beer-like smell, and I looked on the bottle and they use wheat malt in this, so it was probably that I noticed. Spices, citrus, grapefruit, pine-needle is found.

Taste is very good. The name says it all... it is moastly bitter, but at the same time, balanced with some sweetness from the malt. Notes of citrus, grapefruit and some pine-needle. Ends with a big bitterness. Slightly spicey with notes of wheat.

Mouthfeel is very good for 4,5%. Filling, smooth with low carbonation and the liquid is medium-like. Dry!

Drinkability is of course very high. One of the best session beers here in Sweden. Ah, amazing...
