1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear golden with a medium fluufy white head. Artificial sweet and candyish aroma with strong alcohol notes. Medium bodied and smooth, low bitterness, terribly unbalanced.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Just too sweet. 50cl can from systembolaget, average clear gold with white head. sweet boring aroma and syrupy yet thin palate. WAY too sweet. barely drinkable with sugar and alcohol being the only discernable flavors. Won’t be buying this one again.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale golden. Brief, white head.
Sweetness in both aroma and flavour to hide the alcohol; not succeeding.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Clear, still, golden beer with a white head. Malt, apple, alcohol and some hops in the nose. The flavor starts fruity, with apple and pear, then malty sweetness and some hops comes through. Medium body. Too much alcohol, as expected with a 7.3% Sweedish lager. At least it tastes better than its weaker brothers. (060824)

Golden, medium white head. Aromas of alcohol and esters. Sweet, alcoholic taste. Thick palate. Better than expected (which of course, does not mean very much).

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can in May 2005.
Golden color and a white head. Alcohol in the scent and taste. Feels like you’ve poured some alcohol in it to make it stronger. Good for getting you drunk, bad for having a good beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. totally different aroma than 5,2% version, Weak malty nose with hints of alcohol. Skunked hops in flavour along with hints of alcohol. Still quite watery and soft for being 7,3. Totally different from 5,2% in every way, most likely totally different recipe too. Positive surprise actually, even though it is not THAT good.
