Impressive head, leaving a thick layer of foamy lace. Clear and deep amber colored.

A bit piney to the nose.

Tastes close to the traditional English Pale Ales but less caramel base. The finish is moderately bitter. There's just a touch of yeast in the flavor as well.

Pour is transparent copper with tan head. Nose is grain, bread crust, fair amount of malt, sweet caramel, grassy resinous hop. Taste is bread crust, faint dough, sticky malt, sweet caramel. Hops are fading, pine and resin with a strong herbal grassy hop in the finish. Bitterness lingers on the heavy carbonation and a slightly syrupy body.

Served on-tap in Stockholm at Oscar Twist.

Appearance is amber with a one finger head. This English bitter has a nose with pine, caramel, hops and grass. Drinking this bitter and I taste bread, grapefuit, malts and a good amount of sweetness. Its` mouthfeel is medium with a dry, bitter aftertaste, but one that is pleasant. It is a very easy drinking bitter and one that you could quaff a few of in a sitting with still having your wits about you.

Pours a nice, clear copper with a nice fluffy head.

The smell is floral, and fruity, with a nice bready base.

The taste follows the nose, sturdy malt base, with clear and fresh floral and fruity notes. Hints of rye bread. The finish is long with a nice, balanced bitterness.

Bubbly, livey carbonation, the liquid is very smooth on the tongue.

This is one of Sweden's original craft beers, and a sold one at that. It isn't spectacular in any way, but a perfectly executed English bitter, that goes well with any kind of food, too.

Sampled this beer from a bottle well chilled in a tulip glass.

A: Got an amberish clear color, pouring it out of a bottle into the glass gives it a nice little foam head, spinning the glass gives it lots of small carbonation bubbles.

S: The smell is very pleasent, it got a malty tone with some smokiness and hints of sweet notes too. If you have tried other beers from Nynäshamn you will definitely recognize the smell from the malts used.

T: The malty tones comes real nice, the smokiness found from smelling the beer is in the taste as well and grows larger turning into a nice bitterness. As with the smell you will also recognize this as a Nynäshamn brew from the malty tones.

M: Nice small carbonation giving you that great thrilling feel on the tongue. Leaves you with a little bitterness at the end.

O: A great bitter with the recognizable malty and little smokey notes that Nynäshamn often gives you.

Bedarö Bitter, ABV: 4.5%.
500 ml bottle, 28.20 SEK at Systembolaget.

A: The liquid is golden with orange tones. The head is slightly off-white and leaves smaller remains in the glass.

S: A nose with a fair share of American hops, notes of apricots and citrus fruits (like mandarins and grapefruit), and some malt and toffee in the background.

T: Bitter flavours of fruity and floral hops, with hints of pears, apricots, pine needles, roasted malt, hard rye bread and butter.

M: Big bitterness, medium-sized body and soft carbonation - a great, drinkable mixture for beer in my world.

O: An English bitter with a nice touch of American hops. A really good session beer, that also works well with (for example) a big juicy steak. Good times.

Poured from a 50cl bottle into a goblet.

A- Amber color with no head just a few bubbles around the edges.

S- Little aroma, mostly just a metallic nose

T- banana/clovey maltiness w a hint of hoppy bitterness. But really hollow in taste. I called it metallic hollowness. It left me wondering if that was all the beer had to offer. Really missing balance in flavor.

M- nicely carbonated - nothing amiss with the mouthfeel

O- This beer was very flat and hollow in flavor for me. Obviously it should be somewhat of a session beer given its style, but I didn't even want to have a second session - if that tells you anything.
