The beer pours hazy, copper-brown, with a two finger highe, fluffy, beige, head.

Nose: Very fruity! Plum, dried fruit, raisin, apple, dark berries, caramel malt and fudge.
Taste: Not as big as the nose but very subtile and great! Dry but still sweet. Dried fruit, dark bread, raisin and malt.
Mouth: Medium body and carbonation. Sweet and dry ending. Great beer!

Conclusion: A beer in a beatiful bottle with a personality. Deep, complex but still easy to drink. A beatiful beer paring with BBQ meat, christmas food etc.

Really tasty bitter with a good balance of caramel malt and English hops with strong bitterness.

Deep bronze color, slightly hazy. Average white foam.
In the smell a good earthly hop, on a good malty base. Tea notes.
In the mouth, after a light maltiness, there is a good earthly bitterness, pleasant, long.
Not too drinkable (not like an english bitter), but not bad at all.

On-tap at Borefts beer festival.

A - Dark amber colored beer, no carbonation visible and with a decent white head.

S - The smell is like 'fruit vinegar', I just haven't got any other words for it.

T - The taste was actually a bit surprising as I expected a bit more from my first Närke brew. It's a nice fresh tasting beer that you can drink over and over again. Flavors; lemon and pine hops.

M - Lower carbonation, nice dry finish to complement the bitterness, smooth and creamy, good solid body. Nothing to complain about here.

D - A very reasonable thirst quencher but not really special to me.

Somewhat hazy dark amber, nearly brown color on the beer, a beige head leaving lacing.

The smell is fruity, pears, apples, malty, bread and nuts, and distinct hops.

Upfront sweet, raisins and dark bread, then oranges and lemons and a good concluding bitterness,

Medium high carbonation, a rather complex feeling, a dry finish.

A good balanced and rather complex beer.

I had this from a bottle and a keg at Narke with Hans into a Narke tulip.

The beers a really nice dark copper with a hint of dark orange. There is a tope head that rises about two fingers with good retention and thick lacing...The aroma is similar to most esbs, a very sweet slight alcoholic bitter throughout, not a ton of sweetness to balance it out, but not sure if its needs it really...The taste is better than the aroma, light sweet to start and a light bitter through your sip with a very strong bitter finish several seconds after you swallow.

This is the most popular Narke making up a third of production. I think it is very good, not their best though. Its worth trying but but for a drinker Id go with CAmarillo.
