1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours and looks in the glass like dry ginger ale, not beer. Aroma of straw and stewed pairs. Very sweet palate and way overcarbonated. The sweetness, combined with a shocking metallic bitterness make for an unpleaseant finish. Very average.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Yellow, with bubbles.. My god this was nasty. There’s a note of hops in the aroma that actually makes it through the sickening sweet industrial Kraftwerk taste. Not that it helps... this is quite possibly one of the worst tasting beers I’ve ever drunk.... usually I find macrobrewery swill pretty harmless but this is so bad that it actually pissed me off. Screw you Carlsberg!

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Yellow in color and with small white head.The first thing that strikes me is a strong acidity in the taste. That is of course along with bready barly notes and some floral or grassy hoppyness. It’s kind of fizzy but I don’t really mind. Better than I expected to be honest.

Had 2 bottles of this at some restaraunt in Sweden. Poured a darker pale yellow with a decent amount of fizzy white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy, a bit grassy and metallic. Flavor is slightly hoppy and dry. Overall, typical pale lager.
