look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Served on draught into Akkurat stemware at Akkurat in Stockholm. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a one finger head of slight cream, fair thickness, and average retention. Cloudy nontransparent dark copper colour.

Sm: Amber and bittering hops, and cream. A mild strength aroma.

T: Fruit esters, amber hops, bittering hops on the climax, barley, and very light malt. Complex but imbalanced. Decently built.

Mf: Pretty coarse and wet, which is moderately complementary of the flavour.

Dr: Average drinkability and fair quality at obscene Swedish prices.

Pour is slightly hazed dark orangish amber with a light tan head. Nose is very hoppy and oiliy. Doughy butery note underneath it all. Taste is same with a light lingering bitterness if the finish. Hops are strong, bitterness is kept in check, falls off slightly in the finish.

The beer is clear amber, has a high off-white head that leaves good lacing.

The smell is mainly citric, ripe oranges, but also some soap associations.

The taste has much malt, bread, toffee, some lemon juice and peel. Slightly chemical.

Medium high carbonation, rather soft and somewhat oily, a dry finish.

Seem to have been brewed properly, but does not respond 100% to mine nose and tongue.
