bark (255) - Linköping, - JUN 19, 2005
Bottle. Colour is yellow. The white foam sinks down to a white uneven lid.

The smell is a bit chemical with notes of sour malt and a weak hint of some hops.

The taste is kind of watery, with some synthetic sweet malt. The aftertaste is buttery with some anonymous flowery hops.

Carbonation is milder than expected from a pale lager.

What’s this thing with the summer season? It seems like everyone wants lagers that don’t taste anything at all. Miserable! Besides, I don’t really like the Åbro beers in general, but this one was ever worse.

(Bottle). Slightly metallic malt aroma. Malty flavor with a slight bitterness. OK but quite boring!

Can 50cl. @ home.
Clear light to medium yellow color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head.

Body is medium to light, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [20090707]

Beer4000 (4433) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2009
500 ml can (4,7%). Pale golden body with a decent white head. Light grainy aroma. Flavor is very light malt, refreshing and somehow a bit fruity acid. A hint of hops in the finish. Not much of a beer, still nothing wrong and quite refreshing.

FatPhil (9258) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 10, 2009
500ml can (Systembolaget, Stockholm) - 4.7% version.
Sweet citrussy and light lagery taste, almost lager with a dash. Fizzy palate, but crisp and refreshing. Very citrussy taste, and a clean lager maltiness underneath. OK, this was a sauna beer, but dang, I drained that can dry and didn’t look back. If another can had been on offer, I’d have taken that too. Thin and throwaway, but it’s good for what it’s supposed to be - a crisp refreshing summer lager. And there’s snow outside...

Can,2009-06-1, 10 C AP: Pilsner yellow with extremly lively carbonation, high rocky head AR: Pilsner F: Fresh, little fruitiness, malty-nice suprise, - Could be a hit for those that likes this kind of lagers!

larsga (6172) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2009
Big offwhite lasting head. Light yellow body with carbonation. Light peppery apple aroma with floral notes. Dryish dusty milky apple taste with peppery lemony floral notes. Mid-bodied. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dry (and faintly acidic) lemony mealy papery aftertaste with metallic vegetable notes. Mostly good, but the aftertaste kind of spoils it. (0.5l can, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

Rune (7943) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2009
500ml can, shared by Finn. Straw coloured body. Persistent white head. Subdued aroma of citric fruits. Semi sweet flavour of grainy malts with hoppy hints. Dry, rounded finish. Unvaried (Elsas, Skibotn 14.08.2009).

Gr0ve (2132) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2009
500 ml can. Pale golden colour. Crystal clear. Tall creamy white head. Gentle citrusy malt aroma. Light, but refreshing. The body is not too bad and there is quite a bit of bittering hops to balance things out. A rather simple beer, but refreshing enough. If you’re thirsty this works well.

Miksu (4946) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2009
0.5 l can, thanks hanniku! Golden color with fluffy head. Malty and honeyish aroma with notes of lemon. Malt forward flavor with honey, lemon and touch of herbal hops. Light lagers are rarely exciting but withing the category this is fairly good.
