1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2009 Bottled. Clear, pale golden, with a small white head. Grainy and malty aroma and flavor, with some bitterness. Medium to thin body with some fruity bitterness in the finish. The beer was brewed to celebrate the 150 years anniversary of the brewery. With all that experience, they should do better than this. Rating: 3-2-3-3-7-1.8. (060825)
Bottle. It’s a clear, slightly pale golden beer with a small white to off-white head. Some fruit to follow the sweet maltyness in the aroma. Quite weak. Some wet cardboard notes in the flavor, in addition to the fruit notes and malts found in the aroma. Short wet cardboard-like finish. Medium to thin body, quite dry. Far from impressing, especially considering it being a celebration beer. (090327)

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 courtesy of Domtom - clear golden colour and a solid but unregular foam; solid aroma of wet paperboard and old apples; sweet with a modest malt body, slightly oily, short and partially dry aftertaste of rotten fruits and vegetables - help me ! I’m lost on the dark side of swedish beers ...

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled. Pale golden colour, mediumsized white head, which vanishes fast. Aroma is hops, malts and a bit metallic. Flavour is salty, malty and has a grassyish finish. Slight acidic hints also. Crappy and unbalanced, especially in finish and aftertaste.

Dark golden, smells of malt. Malty papalte, too, with a bitter finish that is not particularly pleasant. Let’s hope they come up with something better for thjeir next anniversary.
