A: Reddsih amber. Offwhite head with rather big bubbles that stays. Some lacing.
S: Red berries, hay/stable/dung, bathing ball (plastic inflatable).
T: Smoke, leather, bitterness, stable, rose.
M: Below medium body.
D: Very good.

Related to Nils Oscars India Ale. I realise that dung may put some off, but both aroma and taste is very complex. You need to try this. Really.

The label is more of chicken-yellow than orange-yellow this year.

The colour is dark amber; the foam sinks slowly down to an uneven off-white lid.

The smell is hoppy and bitter with some sweet notes from the malt. There is something slightly American about the smell; maybe they have been using some cascade? Or is it just a generous amount of East Goldings? Dry fruity notes are blended with chemical citric flavours.

The taste is more bitter and drier than I have expected: There is a good amount of roasted malt as well as a fine bitter background with citric/sour hops. The aftertaste is descending bitter; the finish is all roasted malt with a creamy hint of herbs and cocoa.

The carbonation is a little stronger than the average lager with lots of medium sized bubbles, preventing it from being too heavy.

An unusually dark and dry Märzen, this one.

Pours a dark copper colour into the glass. It doesn't pour much of a head, just a thin ring. The smell is fruity and a bit burned and roasted. The taste is dry with a big bitterness. It also has a little burned taste. This is a pretty good beer from one of the best breweries in Sweden.

Tasty, better than the Kalasol, this is the Easter version, more flowery and hoppy than the regular kalasol, some burnt malts in there, sweetish start, with a bitter finish, didn't really taste like a Vienna, but who cares?, it was tasty.
