Big white head rises out of the glass into ice-cream shapes. Pale yellow body. Fruity mango and cat’s pee (simcoe?) aroma. Bitter grassy fruity taste with wooden notes. Mid-to-thin body. Mild mouthfeel. Dry-bitter dandelion grassy aftertaste with resiny notes. Nice, but very bitter, and a bit thin. (0.4l draft at Bishop’s Arms, Folkungagatan, Stockholm.)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Ölrepubliken, Göteborg.
Pale golden colour. Big creamy head. Vanilla and tropical fruits blend together nicely in aroma. Light edgy Co2 in the mouthfeel, which is otherwise soft and rounded. Rich hoppy in aroma and flavour, leaning towards grassy, which is on the edge of being a bit too much. Fluffy mouthfeel, it’s like cotton. The bitterness is kind of oblong, starts early and lasts long and seem to last forever. I’m amazed by the body and flavour profile, given the low abv.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Sofo, Stockholm) Golden yellow colour with lasting, creamy, white head. Hoppy, malty nose with grainy malt, grass, citrus and a touch of pine needles. Malty, hoppy taste with initial notes of toffee, bread and grain, evolving into a bitter, rather dry finish with impressive amounts of citrussy, grassy hops. Medium body, mainly dry. Very bitter. The fairly low alcohol level and the dryness of the beer makes it highly drinkable and refreshing despite the impressive hoppy bitterness. In a sense fairly extreme, but still exceptionally balanced. Impressive!

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2010 Draught at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm. Took at least ten minutes to pour from the tap.

Medium-bodied with hoppy notes of pine and wet grass with a solid malty backbone of white bread and mild butter. Solid and creamy mouthfeel. Bitter finish of wet grass, pine and resin with buttery undertones A.really good pale lager but I still rank #4 Snygg higher which is the one of the best Lagers I’ve sampled.
