On tap at Akkurat in Stockholm. Beer poured a cloudy amber body with a huge, massive while head that gives the effect of an ice cream float. The top looks like a baseball submerged in my beer but luckily it didn't taste like that. There was a nice citrus, hop aroma. The taste had a nice malt presence but also a refreshing citrus hop bite as well. Filling body and overall well rounded taste. My first Narke and hopefully not my last.

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.

Närke Kulturbryggeri must be Sweden's best brewery In my opinion. And this beer is no exception from the genuine quality of the brewery.

Colour is very dark brown with a reddish tone. Nice beige/white head that lasts for a while.

Smells really excellent, full on english hops.

Taste is really nice of bitter hop tones and some fruits too. Really nice big palate, maybe because it's straight from the cask.

This is one of those "must drink" beers from the best micro brewery in Sweden.

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

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.

The colour is dark brown-wine red, the liquid is clear. The finger thick head is red-ish; it leaves lots of thick lacing on the glass.

The smell is sweet with notes of treacle, bread, müsli, some bitter-fruity hops.

The taste is complex, but not heavy. Fruits and bread plus a touch of sawdust and wine gums. The aftertaste is elegant with some alcohol and strong flavours of hops, exotic fruits, sweet bread and a fresh hoppy flavour with hints of mint and honey.

The carbonation is strong, almost sharp. The liquid is dry and a bit light.

A very tasty and refreshing ale with lots of flavours.

Pours quite dark in a brown amber color. Malty nose leads to the same on flavor. Slight spicy bitter taste hits over the tongue and on earthy/dirt kind of aftertaste stays. I wouldn't quite call this an easy drinker by a long shot. Much heavier than what I feel a standard bitter is. Still, it's well made. And besides, it's Närke. *cue out of control screaming shrill and shrieking voices conveying undying love and admiration*

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.

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.
