1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours golden with a small foamy head.
Very heavy carbonation, the "slightly hint of citrus" is more a lemony sourness before all taste disaperes.
Very nice looking bottle, but not surpisingly the content wasn’t as enjoyable...

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
This taste like your common simple lager. I’m amazed how little Centennial can taste, they can’t have a lot of the hops in this one. Bought it from systembolaget and it pours a clear filtered orange/golden liquid with nearly no head at all. If this was supposed to be an average lager I wouldn’t mind so much but I wouldn’t have wasted time and money on it either, but it isn’t. I prefer the APA before the EPA but I still want more of a beer than this gives. Sorry.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Clear, golden liquid with medium egg-white head. Aroma of corn, stale earthy hops, metal, bread and some cereal. Some sulfur. Maybe some grassy hops. Smells like a cheap eurolager. Where is the Centennial hops? Not good. Taste is dry with a metallic, medium bitterness with toasty, biscuity notes and a little corn. Light bodied with too high carbonation and watery mouthfeel. Another dissapointment from Spendrups/Brutal Brewing. Why won’t they brew the beers they had at SBWF?

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours clear golden with a small frothy and fizzy white head without leaving much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, malty and slightly stale with yeasty bread, orange zest, grass and hints of caramel, metal and plums. Taste is sweet and bitter with caramel, yeast, orange peal, bread, unripe mango and lots of wet grass. Mouthfeel is sharp, watery, slightly unbalanced and thin bodied. Finish is sweet, tiny bitter and stale with old bread, silage and hints of citrus and grass. Neither tastes nor smells good. Not very ecological to waste foodstuffs making this.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden with a large white head, Aroma is grassy hops and bread. Taste is bitter with some malty notes to it, the bitterness dies away quickly, some minor notes of hops is present just before the taste dies out. Thin with low carbonation. Might as well carbonate hop tea.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden colour with a white head. Hoppy nose. Hoppy and grassy flavour. But also a bit thin, close to call it waterish.
[Bottle from Systembolaget in Strömstad, Sweden]

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a 33 cl bottle at home in Skövde. Golden clear beer wit an offwhite head. A bit hoppy thin aroma. A bit spicy flavour. Not a nice beer at all.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lite gräsig doft. Smaken är väl ok med tydlelig gräs och en viss beska. Helt ok matöl.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle from systembolaget. Artificially sweet smell, like candy. Very bitter taste, aggresive and harsh bitterness that isn’t enjoyable at all. It lacks malts and hops to backup the intense bitterness and the result is an extremely unbalanced beer that is very hard to drink. I got about half of my bottle down before giving up.
