3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 0,33l. Starting beer in a tiny beer samling session together with Rune at Järnvägshotellet in Kiruna, Sweden. Clear golden brown. A pretty lasting tanned head. Hoppy aroma. Fruity flavour. Ending in a pleasant bitter lasting aftertaste. A bit unbalanced but a very good lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2006 355ml bottle (Alc. 5.3%) sampled with Finn at Järnvägshotellet In Kiruna (13.07.2006). Nice appearance with a lasting white foam over an amber coloured content. Hoppy aroma. Flavour of sweet malt, fruit and hops. Sharp bitter finish. Lively carbonated. Medium bodied. Very much like a pale ale, so this is my best lager so far.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2006 Aroma: fruity, lovely hops, full-bodied malt, vaguely musty.
Appearance: almost clear amber, some whiute, yellowtinged head that quickly lowers.
Flavor: bitter, full-bodied thanks to some swetness, hoppy afterbitterness.
Palate: just right carbonation, rich, refreshing, a little slimy.

Bottle. Really aromatic, fruity hoppiness in the aroma. Good bite, hop dominated taste. Nice, prefers this to a lot of other beers.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, amber appearance, under a slim, but sturdy speckled white head.
Creamy, malty nose, quite attractive...soft and flowery, pleasant esters from yeast (?)... I like it.
Taste: smooth, clean, crisp, malty. Light bodied, but nicely textured, good grit, tight balance, tidy hops meet copious malt. A streamlined beauty, full of flavor. Blend of fruit associations chimes in, some apple, melon, grape, mixed with grain.
Quite a classy lager, this one, damned good. Almost ale-like in it’s display of flavors. Just goes to show what happens when a lager is done well!
Can be drunk without disappointment, and no end in sight for the taste. Very, very nice!
