Småland är en ljus lager, inspirerad av den tjeckiska pilsnertraditionen. Den är bryggd på vatten, malt, humle och äkta tjeckisk jäst och har lagrats extra kallt och lite längre än vanligt. Resultatet har blivit en mogen småländsk pilsner med mjuk, fyllig smak och kraftigt skum. Njut den väl kyld, gärna i ett nysköljt glas.

When pouring the beer, you get a dark yellow color with white foam. The foam have large bubbles and are medium loose, and disappear quite quickly. The aroma is a little small fresh with a little malt and citrus tones. Even smells a little butter and some bread. The taste is slightly sweet malt, fresh bitter tones mixed with butter. A little streets, are rye bread and a little salt. Hints of citrus and thin tones of hops. Will the little hints of bitterness but is quite tame.

Draught @ random place near Hovet. A bit rougher compared to other big bland lagers. Light herbal hoppiness.

visionthing (4792) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 2, 2015
33cl can from Systembolaget Sälen. Pours clear pale yellow with a modest, white head. Grainy aroma with some grassy notes, hints of cooked vegetables and fruits. Moderate sweet with grainy and grassy flavours and a certain bitterness. A small step up from the usual pale lagers, fairly drinkable, but hardly anything to write home about.

DraftDodger (1081) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2015
Copenhagen 27/9 2015. 33 cl can brought home from Sweden. Drawing of idyllic tree houses on the label. A lot of "5,2"s on the can to warn the hapless Swedish that this is pure dynamite containing no less than 5,2 % of alcohol. Pours clear yellow with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam fairly fast. Aroma of sweet malts with some sour notes. Medium carbonation with slightly oily palate. Flavour is malty sweet with only a mild bitterness. Short bland aftertaste. Pretty standard industrial lager without any distinctive features.

SamTheBarrel (775) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2015
330ml can poured into a footed pilsner glass. Appearance is clear pale golden with a large frothy off-white head that reduced quickly, leaving a little lacing behind on the glass. Aroma of bread, butterscotch and lemon zest. Flavours of bread, butterscotch and lemon zest. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light bodied, somewhat slick texture and average carbonation. Åbro Småland is a decent beer for the price.

Pours like an svetly should, perfectly clear with gentle carbonation. I like the aroma on it as well, fitting for the style, some yeast and some light hop tones. Nice. Taste is middle of the road really but well within the style. At the pricepoint it is at i can not complain at all, makes alot of pissy lagers common in sweden look really bad! This one actually tastes like an proper svetly pils. Can from SB.

gunnar (7873) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 5, 2015
Can from my brother. Pours clear golden with a big creamy white head. Weak grassy hop aroma. Moderate sweet caramel, weak oily mouthfeel, with a shy grassy bitter finish, not a winner for me.
