1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can from Systembolaget, Charlottenberg. Fully diminishing greyish blond head. Plain pale pilsner golden body. Appears sweeter and with less bittering hops than the original. Weak, sweet-scented malt aroma with a light fruit tone. Taste is sweetish malts and faint apple-fruitiness. Barely any bittering hops. Slick texture. No offs, but bland and utterly boring.

(Bottled, rated 2006-01-06 16:15:11) Pale golden with a medium, lightly lacy head. Slightly stufy nose with fruitiness and reasonable hopping. Sweetish, honeyish flavor with quite crisp, lemony hops - but also slightly dish-washing-liquidy. Light body with lots of CO2. Ok hops, but that’s it.

Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget, February 2013.
Clear golden with a white head. Weak aroma and taste of malt, some grain and with notes of soap. Drinkable but very boring.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
568ml can. Straw with a loose white head; cereal grain aroma; fresh gainy flavour with a medium body and light carbonation;
and a very lightly bitter finish, just avoiding the damp cardboard found in so many cheap macro lagers. Probably the best lager in the world ...
I beg to differ.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A modified rating from the old days:
Clear golden (yellow) colored beer with a small to medium and quick disappearing white head on top of it.
The smell is typical grainy, some malts, light sweets, old grassy hops and herbs.
Taste is light/medium bitter with grainy herbs, grassy hops and some sweet bitter herbs.
Aftertaste seems to be more bitter than it’s in the taste. Decent for the style but bad for beer in general…
