Poured into a BrewDog snifter glass.

A: The body is very coppery and mildly dark. The head is white to beige with medium retention and somewhat living only close to the glass. It's medium hazi but shows a light body.
S: This beer's aroma is very strong in malt and in orthodox hops, having a clear distinct character of the east golding as it is one of the most commercial hops known to men. You can feel it clearly here. In the end, the aroma feels like a hop-powered light barleywine.
T: Taste starts off with a sweet and giant malty tone, very strong. It then moves lightly to the bitter end of the sip with a crystalline bitterness with no harshness from the mainstream hops used.
M: Body is medium. Carbonation is great. Alcohol is unnoticed. Bitterness is high.
O: Again, this is just my second Narke beer and even though I'm not in love with it, this is certainly technically very well executed.

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.
