2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big white coarse head shrinks quickly, leaving no lace. Deep yellow body with light carbonation. Sweetish aroma of very ripe fruit and grain, with bready notes. Deep sweetish straw and apple taste with more fruity notes. Has a dry edge throughout. Traces of alcohol and some alcohol heat. Dry, grassy sweetish fruity malty aftertaste. Surprisingly nice and flavourful. (0.5l bottle from Alko. Rated at room temperature.)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2008 Bottle 0.5 l. Hmm.. am I drinking the same beer the others are? 1.84 average is a bit of an understatement I would say. I had this in my fridge for months as I wasn’t very encouraged to open it considering the reviews. Now that I’m having it, it’s got nice full foamy mouthfeel, malts, very crisp hoppiness!, fresh and hides the alcohol very well. Not too sweet by any means. Urquell style hoppiness with bitter aftertaste. Anyhow, too strong alcohol % for a pils like this, altho it’s surprisingly fresh considering.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
50cl can. rich gold color with big, foamy head. very sweet malty aroma. Alcoholic and sweet taste, but somewhat of a balance of hop in there, just enough to make this the most balanced and drinkable of the 7%+ swedish lager types that ive had from the system so far.

From can poured in glass: yellow with lasting white head. Aroma is nothing special, just a little sweet. Taste is also sweet with a stinging senseation of alcohol. I guess there was some malt in there as well. We bought this version of Småland out of mistake and even though it wasn’t completely horrible it wasn’t that great either.

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.

(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
