1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Better than the ordinary Falcon, but that, on the other hand, doesn’t say anything. It’s just something with the taste I can’t stand.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle. Cool xmas logo. Clear mahogany body with a low-level head. Poor in aroma - only lightly hints of sweet malts. The flavour brings notes of roasted malts added by a touch of sweet dark berries. Short tail and a bit too sweet (Linköping, 25.01.2008).

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Fluffy tan head. Clear, plain brown colored body. Dry grainy and light caramellish smell. Also some quite unpleasant scents of wet cardboard and metal. Taste is unfresh, light bitter-sweet with a low malt level. Light-bodied. Sourish mouthfeel. Empty finish. Forgettable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear deep copper with a medium beige head. Grainy, unclean, and syrupy malt aroma, thin and spritzy, a bit too sweet. Still much better than many other Falcon brews.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear dark amber with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma is pretty bad, the signature Falcon vegetables, combined with some cloves. Light body, not too bad... flavours of mild spices, chocolate and vegetables. Nothing finish.
