Bottle, 50cl - Golden peach colored beer with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is malty with hints of fresh hops and with floral notes. Flavor is malty and slightly acidic with hints of hops and straw. Nicely done by Arboga, though I’ve heard it’s Jämtlands who brew this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden colour, medium-sized head. Fresh, flowery hoparoma. Good start. Solid flavour profile, with no off-flavours. A pleasant flowery hopiness, along with a light cookie malt feel makes this an enjoyable beer. Bitterness is on the low side but noticed. Had this been a blind test, my guess would be Nynäs or Nils Oscar. Tasty and clean beer. Well done!

Full bodied golden lager. Malty body, fresh lemon and grapefruit hoppiness. Balanced, recommended.
Too bad the label is filled with historical nonsense instead of saying more about the ingredients.
