1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
[Bottled] Pale golden colour. Frothy head. Aroma is rotten cabbage and old cheese. Thin and watery with a faint, grassy bitterness. Horrible stuff!

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Another pale chemical lager from Åbro. Nothing new here; rather sour, metallic and disgusting. Loads of carbonation to hide the worst parts.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light blond color. Sweet vanilla aroma, stronger and more pure than in other beers. Soft taste, poor of course, no special flavor; ends with a common level of bitterness.

Very little foam. Very little everything except water. Another of Åbro’s diluted everything...

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very pale golden with a medium white head. Strong aroma of corn and chunder. Strong corny flavour with some grassy hops, also has some off-flavours. A bad one, differs from other pale lagers that it has a really "in your face" offensiveness, instead of the usual light nasty flavours.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Another treat from delicious Åbro. Clear golden colour. Plastic, sour aroma with cooked vegetables. Flavour is revolting, not sweet but industrial with an artificial plastic, light sour backbone. I did not sense any hops at all. Very light body. This fermented for a month, according to the brewery, in 12-15 degrees Celcius.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottled. Okay, what we have here is a new product from Åbro. So if the Vimmerby pils was quite horrible and awkward, wait ’til you see this. Golden colour, no head. Aroma is unclean tap with slight harsh hoppy hints. Very skunked. Flavour is salty and skunked, harsh hayish hops. This won’t get a single number higher than one. This could be considered as a good example of how not to make a pale lager.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Pale yellow with a low bubbly foam. Disgusting aroma of rotting vegatbles, corn and garbage. thin watery flavour of rotten peas and salad with a metallic edge in the very short aftertaste. Crap.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2006) Pale yellow, no head. Vegetable aroma, no flavor, some bitterness in the finish. The same as most Åbro beers. Very much the same...
