The colour is red-amber-brown (35 EBC), the liquid is clear. The finger thick head sinks quickly into a tin lid leaving no lacing.

The smell is malty and sweet. Notes of newly broken twigs and dandelions. Cookies/biscuits and a dry somewhat dusty flavour (old bread?). Hints of nuts, moss and butter.

The taste is nutty with odd off-flavours of acrylatic paint, rotten wood and moss. Low sweetness, floral-woody hop notes. Mild to medium bitterness. Medium body. The aftertaste is distinctly alcoholic with caramel malt, wood and a sticky sweetness. Moss in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong, the small bubbles fresh. The liquid is somewhat dry.

I wonder if this one is supposed to taste like this?

A clear copper amber, a rather small and quickly settling head, good lacing, small curtains.

Smelling mostly malt, honey, porridge, nuts, some orange.

Starts with sweet brown bread, porridge with brown sugar, hay and some bitter herbs.

Medium high carbonation, fizzy bubbles, sticky fluid with a medium body, slightly dry finish.

More malts than hops, as should be. But not a bad Märzen at all.

Phantombrewery, this one brewed in Nyköping at Nils Oscar's. First time I sampled this one I was sitting next to the brewer at Ängö Kvartersbryggeri who told me about the "FrEQuency Aint Nutin To F*** Wit" brewed at Ängö.
The first thing I have to dissagre about is that this one should have been brewed in New York - how great wouldn't it had been if the "No Sleep In October" was brewed at Brooklyn brewery as a Homage to Adam Yauch who passed away this year?

A: Deep ruby red pour with a rather large tan head, that sets slowly. Some pretty nice lacings appears.

S: Rich bready malt, semi-sweet and very bready. Some hops lingers in the back; fruit and some faint bitter notes. But malt is what this one is all about.

T: Sweet, caramelly bready malt dominates. Almost nothing else is present.

M: Semi-long bready aftertaste. Body is medium to full while carbonation is rather mild.

O: Nothing to write home about - actually rather boring. Not bad, but boring. This one lacks the hops. The malt, not bad, isn't balanced by anything else. Don't get me wrong, I love malty beers but this one left the malt unchallanged.
