>> Looks almost like normal Bud but 3.5% on the back label. Thank you blomster and pussypete for the wale. Pours a clear straw with weak foam. Nose is gamey honey, smoked ham, honey. Huh. Taste is paper water, extremely bland. Palate is carbon paper, cardboard. Well that escalated quickly.

Bottle thanks to Christer at RBWG 2014. Pours a clear pale yellow with a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has notes of corn and sweet grain. Flavor is similar with more sweetness coming through with the corn.

Bottle @ RBWG Fart Share. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a white head. Lemon spritzy aroma. Fairly fresh. Rice. Very watery. Sweet sticky rice. Good carbonation. A nice Swedish twist on an American classic. Thanks to Christer for bringing this 5,000 miles to share.

A steady pour into my "SM i Hembryggd öl 2013" glass produces a three finger, but quite fastly dissipating white head that produces minimal lacing and dissapears within seconds; not very handsome. The beer itself is a pleasant gold, if a bit too pale, with an excellent clearness. The nose has a light breadlike maltiness followed by a massive amount of green apple and corn notes. Not very inviting and in reality off putting.

The carbonation is what hits me at first; fizzy with small, sharp bubbles that might be pleasant but really aren’t. The tastes follows with a light but fat, sweet maltiness together with almost non-existent, but in a way metallic, bitterness. Hereafter follows a veritable cascade of awful phenols and esters: green apples, corn, cardboard and the likes. Dissecting this beer any further would be madness. Together with an unpleasantly oily, but still extremely thin, mouthfeel this becomes almost undrinkable.

This was, as expected, one of the worst beers I’ve ever had. A massive amount of cardboard flavour together with a fat maltiness and an offputting aroma makes this an abomination to beer itself.

Canned. Pale pale yellow beer with a big white head. No aroma or flavour at all, I think this must be bad water.....

gyllenbock (6899) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle from Hemköp, Stäket. Clear golden with a white head. Weak aroma and taste of corn, some very light citrus and bread. Incredibly thin and boring.
