Since the Danish IPA I had earlier didn’t really convince, I’ll be having a Swedish ESB (with American influences) instead. This beer is sold in larger Kesko markets (e.g. K-Citymarket Sello and Iso Omena, and K-Supermarket Kamppi), so should quite easily be available if you wish to try it. I haven’t had anything by Nynäshamns Ångbryggeri before (this is actually the first Swedish beer I ever review), but their beers have been getting some good reviews, so am really looking forward to trying this beer. It has been brewed with Pale Ale, Crystal and Wheat malt from Thomas Fawcett, and has been hopped with Chinook and Cascade. Let’s see what it tastes like!

Appearancewww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
The beer pours golden, with a slight hint of orange and minimal haze. A slight white head is formed, that collapses quite quickly, leaving some lacing along the glass.
Smellwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
The aroma is dominated by a bready maltiness, featuring some hints of caramel and a floral, citrusy and spicy fruitiness. The aroma is quite light, but suitable to the style.

The flavor begins with a slightly sweet and bready maltiness, that is joined by a citrusy (tones of grapefruit and lemon), fresh and grassy hop flavor. The flavor ends in a quite dry and smooth bitter finish. The flavor mend together well, and the maltiness is allowed to shine as well.

The beer has a light body and a medium-high carbonation level. It is very refreshing and easy to drink.

A really nice and refreshing beer, that I probably will be buying again during the summer. The hoppiness isn't dominating, but it is still present, and brings fresh, citrusy and grassy notes to the beer, that compliment well with the bready maltiness. The price is okay as well, but could be a little cheaper. Recommended!
