3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy, dull gold colour. Nice white head with lacing. Great floral aroma. Slightly sweet taste, then a bright hoppy finish leaves a bitter, dry feel. Quite carbonated.

This is a solid beer, great amber color with a small head, flavorful but not so strong that it overwhelms food. This is a really good lager

0.330ml bottle. Nice copper brown color. Light head. Taste has lots of malts, some citrus and nice bitter aftertaste. My kind of beer at the moment.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear copper body, with a fair amount of carbonation and a nice frothy off-white head. Pretty good head retention.
Smells of citrus-like hops, some grain and light hints of fruit (apple, cherry, plum).
It’s got a nice hop bite up front, followed by some malty, slightly sout graininess, with a hint of fruit. Not much in the way of sweetness. The finish is moderately bitter and bready, with a bit of lingering hoppiness.
Light-to-medium bodied. Crisply carbonated and a bit acidic.
This is a sessionable beer, especially for hop-heads, or those who are beginning to get into hops. I’d prefer this over pale lagers any time!

Perfekt lager. Älskar dessa en varm sommardag. Lagom beska och knappt någon maltighet. Knappt någon sötma.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an amber colour with a lightly lacing head. Beautiful aroma - a flowery hop profile somewhere between Czech saaz and classic English ale hops, and a rich biscuity malt profile reminiscent of a darker German lager. Assertively crisp and bitter, with a light noble-hop spiciness. Creamy and smooth, and eminently drinkable. The best amber lager I can remember trying.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clear amber pour yields a spicy hop aroma of low intensity. The medium body is floral and hoppy with a slight bitter/tartness to the short finish. Not a bad lager I suppose.

I hadnt had one of these in a while and was really pleasantly suprised at how great it was. Really full flavored, nice body. A little sweet and flowery nose with some malt. Just enough hops to keep it smooth and not too thick. Ill be drinking this more often.

Green. Smelled green, tasted green. Too dry for my tastes. Date on the bottles is 340 6.
