1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Macro pretending to be micro. Not very much of anything. Some slight bitterness but overall just another macro "ale" that taste about the same as a boring lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle. Unclear golden, thin white head. Slightly fruity, nutty aroma, distant skunky off-notes. Flavor has caramel, hops, floral notes. Finish s sharp, short and quite biting bitter with some caramel as well. Light to medium bodied. Without the off notes in the aroma, quite enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Small offwhite head. Clear amber body with some small particles
and very light carbonation. Light nutty caramelly aroma with
wooden notes. Dryish earthy caramelly taste with papery wooden
notes. Mid-to-light body. Slightly sharp mouthfeel. Dry-bitter
wooden earthy aftertaste with spicy metallic notes. Too sharp
and one-dimensional, really. (0.33l bottle, Systembolaget,

Light golden with white head. Some bitterness in taste, but nothing remarkable. Is this an ale (it says Eco Ale)?

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Systembolaget, march 22nd 2013. Another macro pretending to be a micro, what’s wrong with honesty? Clear golden body, tiny white disappearing head. Light caramel aroma with honey and earthly hops. taste is also light, with hay and a flower hop note dominating. Neither aroma or taste is actually bad, it’s just too little of it all to satisfy. On to aftertaste there’s vegetables and metal, which destroys this beer for me.

Jag hade inga direkta förväntningar på den här ölen, och det visade sig vara ett smart drag för att undvika besvikelse. Aromen är inlemmas med svaga nyanser av koriander. Smaken är bitter med torra gräsaktiga toner, kort sagt var det här ingen höjdare.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Too much carbonation destroys the impression and affect the mouthfeel in a negative way. The flavors are not quite up with the nice hop bitterness and then a distinctly annoying sourness in the aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours pale straw, some minimal head. Tastes like pilsner, some bitterness of hops, and a slight hint of citrus. Okay but too bland for me.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 2/20
Offcourse a bottle from the systembolaget in Stockholm, cooled in a hotelroom cocktailbar fridge. It looked nice and promising, placed in between the ipas and tripple. Nice top when poured, although it disappeared quite soon but that might have been the hotel wine glass. A tastefull little too hoppy afrertaste, I like an IPA full of hop but this doesnt fit the taste of the pilsner like beer. Smells really good somewhat fruity hops. First zips had typical cardboard-like, muffy bite, hence my rating. Have to say the last few zips were much better probably because the aftertaste now has fully taken over my taste and i am now expecting the worst.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Minimal head, good malty and hoppy aroma. Little flowers both in taste and aroma. Taste is good and bitterness in finish is making this bear really enjoyable.
