Vintage 2005.

The colour is dark brown; the silent finger thick head is beige and compact.

The smell is quite mild with bitter notes of hops, some fruity notes of roasted malt and a touch of coffee.

A coffee-like flavour of roasted malt dominates the taste; there are also fruity notes of apricots and green bananas. The aftertaste is very creamy and mild (yet distinctive) with notes of chocolate toffee, sweetened coffee and some … mild mustard? After a while, a mild note of exotic fruits (carambola) appears. Overall, the taste is balanced and un-bitter, just as an mild is supposed to be.

The carbonation is mild and delicate – perfect for the style.

A happy surprise, this one. Probably the only dark mild produced in Sweden, and a great one indeed. Hurrah!
