gnoff (7844) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2014
33 cl can from Systembolaget Karl Johanssgatan, Majorna. Sampled on September 18, 2014. BB 24 Aug 15.
Clear golden color, big lasting white head. Grassy, cale, vegetal, cat pee, sulphur, unpleasant scent. Weak, buttery, sweet, sugary taste. Thin weak mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Grassy, herbal, sugary aftertaste.
I think it was at a tasting at work someone said they really liked this one, so I figured I’d buy one. Fooled me didn’t he? Kalle Svensson buying a can by the label and wanting a tiny tad bit more than Mariestads might think this is fantastic and enjoyable, for me it is bland, dull, not really well made, unbalanced and something I’ll dump down the drain...
Actually, it does leave some pretty lacing on teh side of the glass, so looks nice when poured and when I’ve had a few sips, before the drain comes closer.

CloakedDagger (601) - - SEP 9, 2014
Cann 33 cl. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a dense, white head. Lovely exotic Mosaic aroma, really juicy. Body is very thin, a little sweet malts but it’s really just a vehicle for these lovely, juicy hops. Not very bitter. But an excellent quencher. 090914

Hoppsan (151) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2014
33 cl can. Excellent thirst-quencher from Brutal Brewing (Spendrups). Mosaic and Centennial hops add malts, gooseberries and some caramel to aroma and taste. Exceptional value for money! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Abrakarl (312) - SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2014
Not bad for big company beer. There are some hop aroma and also in the taste. More effort than regular lagers (Carlsberg, Pripps blå, Mariestads) is obvious.

33cl can. Bbe 28 JUL 2015. Clear golden, thick white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma, floral notes. Not had. Flavor has citrus, tropical fruity notes. Decent bitterness. Slightly harsh finish, but overall a nice premium lager. Nice surprise, could well drink again. Session beer.

ClubGonzo (4028) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014
Can. Pours a light clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma is water melon, red fruits, sweet gooseberries and hints of pale malts. Taste is pale malts, grapes, red fruits and hints of straw. Light body, medium to high carbonation. Not a bad pale ale, actually, which supersedes my expectations of Spendrup’s "craft" series Pistonhead.
