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.

Great bitter. Soft malty start-grapes, caramel, oats. Dry bitter finish, with some lemony, grapefruity hops. Reallay nice, somewhere between and English and American style bitter, real tasty, aromatic, yet a little salty and earthy, pretty good balance. Thanks Per.

A: Amber with a two finger offwhite head that stays.
S: Citrus, yeast, malt, maybe a hint of dried fruits (raisins) and caramel.T: Hoppy bitternes that lingers, malt, fresh bread and a hint of yeast and citrus (lemon and grapefruit). Aftertaste fruity and bitter.
M. Moderate carboration, above medium body.
D: Very good. A very well balanced bitter.

Nynäshamns Ångbryggeri (Steam Brewery) was started by a group of beer lovers south of Stockholm. Their reputation as microbrewery is very good, and although this is the first of their products I try I can see why. Their selection of beer styles shows a real interest in quality beers.

Very drinkable and unfortunately very limited bitter. Sometimes the micro in microbrewery has it's downsides. Bitter, but with chinook and cascade hops, which may not be very typical for a bitter, but works very well.

Thanks to janM. It amazes me what talented European brewers can do with less than 5%. A pint bottle. Yellow body with tons of foam and lace that softens the tongue and offsets the carbonation. Expirey 12/07. A straightforward bitterness with some malt. More bitter at the end of the bottle. A midsummer night's drink.

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

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...!

At first I wasn't very impressed by this one, but I've tried it a couple of times since then and I has really growed on me.

Copper coloured with a nice large white foam that lasts until the beer is finished.

Smells really nice! You can really notice the american hops by the pine-needle smell, amazing hoppiness!

Taste is full on notes of pine-needles, grapefruit and of course some nice maltiness that makes it a really well-balanced beer. Great that it is so complex and interesting for the low ABV.

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.

Picked this beer up in a smalltown Systembolaget. How it got there is a mystery. Anyway, Nynäshamns Ångbryggeri is an interesting small Swedish brewery that is turning oput some characterful beer. Bedarö Bitter has a nice (dark) golden color but pours with just a little foam. The well-developed smell is of sweet fruits, perhaps peaches, flowers, rasberries, 7-up and lime. The taste is predominantly bitter, sweet and bready. Unfortunately the bitterness is blocking the fruitiness. It's a very decent beer but perhaps a little too fruity for my personal taste.

Nynäshamns Ångbryggeri (steam brewery) name all their brands after the local geography. Bedarö is an island outside Nynäshamn's harbour.

Beautiful amber colour with a large beige head with an almost creamy texture. Good amounts of lacing on the glass.

Hoppy smell of grapefruit. Hints of cloves can be noted in the background.

Taste is bitter. Large amounts of grapefruit and gooseberries. Carbonation is low.

Mouthfeel is smooth, yet somehow stingy. With the low ABV - this is a great beer for a skinny person like myself.

The colour is copper; the liquid is clear. The finger thick head sinks slowly to an off white thick lid, leaving some fine lacing.

The smell is fresh and inviting: Sweet fruity flavours dominate, but there are also bitterness, some lightly roasted notes and touches of yeast and butter.

The taste is bitter – is it really a bitter, I think it borders to an IPA – with lots of fruitiness and creamy sweet malt. The aftertaste is not as bitter, there are notes of butter, dried apricots and other exotic fruits, a mild sour-yeasty mineral taste with a touch of butterscotch.

The carbonation is mild with some medium-sized short bubbles. The liquid is smooth.

This is one of my top 5 when it comes to British pub style ales. And widely available in Sweden, too.

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.

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.
