3.38/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

The colour is brown (24 EBC), the liquid is clear. The four finger firm compact head is warm pale brown. Some lacing occurs.

The smell is malty with some dry motes of vegetables, mild coffee and dark rye bread. Bitter hints of hay, herbs and dried flowers.

The taste is dry, malty and a bit roasted. Dark bread, cocoa, and dried fruits. Growing clean bitter notes. Some vegetables and sour hints in the aftertaste, plus a clean almost sharp bitterness. The finish got some sweet caramelized flavours.

The carbonation is medium strong, the bubbles light and small. The liquid is semi-dry.

A bit too much vegetables-cabbage flavours for me.

S:t Eriks Skördeöl, ABV: 5.3%.
330 ml bottle, 17:90 SEK at Systembolaget.

A: A somewhat hazy brown colour with tones of red. For a change this S:t Eriks beer has a big, foamy beige head and the retention is good.

S: Powerful aromas of both fruity hops and grainy malt, with notes of brown bread, brown sugar, chocolate, nuts, raisins and fresh pine needles.

T: Rather complex flavours from bitter hops and roasted malt, with notes of brown bread, dark chocolate, nuts, dark dried fruits, bitter orange and syrup. Long and somewhat bitter aftertaste with grains and pine needles.

M: Medium body and bitterness. A kind of citric feel as well.

O: A beer with a lot of character(s). It's both malty and hoppy, roasted and fruity - which is tasty - but it could easily become too much. Perhaps it's something to spice up the harvest and early autumn with. During this time of year I think of chanterelles - this could make an interesting mix.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pour is dark brown with hints of red. The beige head is kind of soapy and uneven. Fast dissipation leaves decent lacings.

S: Bready, sweet roasted malt. The hops are both floral and bitter; citric and slightly piney. Some faint dark dried fruits.

T: Roasted sweet malt. Bready. Lovely bitter hops. The floral hops are citric; grapefruit and orange sezt. Some faint dark dried fruits.

M: Aftertaste is long and bitter, with a hint of sweetness. Body is full and carbonation medium. Smooth.

O: Nice and balanced. This is probably my favourite from S:t Eriks.

3.95/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The brew is brown with red nuances, has a dark off-white head that settles quite quickly but leaves good lacing.

Smelling of bread, hay, nuts, oranges and ripe lemons.

Starting with sweet brown bread, cereal, nuts, pears, apples, oranges, bitter peel and seeds. Good and balanced.

Medium carbonation, soft texture, small bubbles, a medium to large body, a good dry feeling.

A well-balanced and well-done lager, with character and feeling. "Love and hops" as the cap says.
