Bought at the swedish Systembolaget.

Appearance: The bottle is pretty dull I think, like the rest of the bottles I've seen from this brewery. The liquid is bronce red with a thick foam leaving some rests.

Smell: Sweet, citrus and some bitterness

Taste: Fresh some kind of "soapy" taste with a nice bitterness. The aftertaste stays in your mouth leaving a bitter and nice feel.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation.

Drinkability: I would say rather high, I don't have so much expericence in this type of beer but I must say this is a good one!

The first beer I reviewed at BA was a bottle of Fallen Angel some three and a half years ago. I’ll guess it is time to revisit this Swedish bitter.

The beer pours with a fizzing sound; the colour is deep amber and the off white two finger head leaves some lacing. The liquid is somewhat cloudy.

The mild smell is bitter and malty; some fruity hints of apricots and matured apples. Some dry bitter notes of minerals and bitter almonds.

The flavours of malt and hops are deliciously balanced: Bread-like fresh malt with sweet notes and creamy fruity bitterness. The aftertaste got matured notes of boiled meat, dark bread, sweet apples, some syrup and a descending fruity bitterness.

The carbonation is medium strong with small creamy bubbles. The liquid is creamy.

Over all, a very balanced and drinkable beer. As an English bitter is supposed to be!

16oz. bottle, hauled back from Sweden.

Clear, golden colored fluid. Large off white head.

Bitter in taste (amazing!), grassy in character. Sweet picks up after a bit, and shows apricots and floral notes. Just a bit of honey to balance the bitter.

Light in body, with medium + carbonation. Drying.

Overall, a nice bitter. I probably liked it because it leaned more towards bitter than balanced. This probably puts it closer to an IPA. Would certainly drink again...if in Sweden.

Expiration date 10/06. Thanks Madsberg. Foamy on top of dark copper. Malt and hop in aroma. Citrus, licorice, and nuttiness flavour, very drinkable, medium body. Bitterness dominates, but it is a medium one, with drying finish. Satisfying aftertaste. Appropriate carbonation.

A very nice beer, bitter and hoppy, with a nice slightly bready malt flavour. Nice spicy hops in the finish, also a slight bit citric, dry-ish finish, generally light in body, but quite full-flavoured, and perhaps a nice session bitter, enjoyable to taste and quaff. Solid.
