2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. A golden beer with a huge fluffy white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of grain, alcohol, and brewing cereal. The flavor is very sweet with notes of alcohol, brewing cereal, malt, and metal, leading to a dry alcholic end. What can I say: European Strong Lager - it’s not my thing.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Can 50 cl) Clear, deep golden with a white head, leaving some lacework. Aroma of malt and alcohol. Solid body with a sweetish malt base and a somewhat raw and bitter hopping in the finish that also contains quite some alcohol. Classical European Strong. 251007

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottled. Honeyish golden colour, huge white head. Corn, soap, metal and some malts and alcohol in aroma. Flavour is soap, corn, some malts and alcohol. Lots of metal. Very horrible beer. Not recommended to anyone. First I thought my glass was soapy or something, but a direct sniff and taste from bottle had the same problems. The appearance was the only thing that could be considered positive.

Canned Golden with dense head. Heavy petrol-like alcohol in the nose. Sweet with some peach, grain and bread. Burning vodka-like alcohol dominates. Low bitterness. Miserably failed.

Bottled (BB 11/2007)
Clear honey golden color, decent white head. Sweetcorn aroma with hints of metal and malt. Sweet corn malty flavor too, acidic with grainy aftertaste. Alcohol is subdued in the start, but comes up in the aftertaste leaving dry mouthfeel. Raw, sweetish and unbalanced malt liquer.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Quite nice golden color with a white head. Sweet aroma with some alcohol. Flavor is no fresh at all and with too much alcohol. This is so disappoiting since I liked the 5,2-version of this beer. But it seems Åbro and some other brewiries alwways have to go for alcohol so much more than flavor...

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Warm golden with an Ok head. The aroma has notes of malt and alcohol. The flavour has notes of malt, flower, light bitterness and a bit of alcohol. It’s really boring, but drinkable. 1887

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle (alko)
Looks like an OK ale - almost brown, and with a small moldy head. Sweet peachy aroma, bock-like malts too. Pleasant carbonation, creamy feel to the palate. Taste is quite amazing, not necessarily in an entirely good way. It’s three-pronged. At first there’s a double-whammy of some punchy prickly alcohol bitterness combined with an absurdly sweet zingy fruity children’s chewy sweet with fake fruit flavours. Together it’s a bit like a weak lemon vodka. Once you’ve got over that, there’s a more sensible sticky malty taste and some slightly harsh hoppy bitterness, and also something that’s a bit like mold. Maybe they had a lemon merangue pie that went a bit furry, and they just threw it in the vat hoping as that was closer than the bin. Finish is slightly acrid hops. Hard to call this one, as I’ve never had anything like it. I expect my rating to waver by a few tenths as I go down the glass...
