3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium offwhite head. Clear amber body with carbonation.
Caramelly fruity grainy aroma with spicy buttery notes.
Dry-sweet raisiny cinnamon taste with grainy notes. Mid-bodied.
Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dry caramel and wet cardboard
aftertaste, which turns into long, lingering harsh bitterness
with buttery traces. Nearly a very good beer, but it falls off
at the end. (0.33l bottle, Systembolaget Nordstan, Göteborg.)

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Arboga can make decent beer. This is however not one of them. It lacks just about everything. It’s a thin weak soup with only hints of hops and malt, some sugar that doesn’t aim right. Good job the comment about it is in swedish, the czechs would sew them if they knew.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml bottle. 20. BB 22 Jul 2013. (Systembolaget) Arjeplog, Sweden.
Clear pale golden colour with small white head.
Aroma, which is mild, is manure and malt. Flavour is almost as tempting. Darkish malt, sugar and manure. Not my idea of good autumn lager. Smakfull svensk klassiker my ass...

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sample at a tasting. Very mild smell with the usual industrial lager aromas. Similar taste. I wonder if this differs much from the normal Arboga beer
