2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml Bottle - Gold/amber with a slight haze and a small head. Grain, yeast, malt and a hint of banana cake in the aroma. Malt, yeast and hints of lemon and banana in the taste. Certainly a lot better than their usual offerings, but it would’ve even better if they had brewed a good beer before deciding not to filter it. You can’t polish a turd, however harsh that might sound.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is vaguely sour with light hints of caramel malt, toffee and grassy hops. The taste is lightly malty with notes of dry grassy hops and caramel. On the whole, a typical "Swedish Lager", But the fact that it is unfiltered actually makes that the beer lifts itself slightly over the common type of mass-produced "Lagers". Thumbs up for Carlsberg’s "daring" launch of a new type of beer. And the score then? Well! I rather drink this beer than any other types of "Falcon" beers thar are available!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Looks like the real deal - cloudy orange, with a medium sized white head. The taste is a bit unclean and the bitterness in the end is a bit harsh (without being overly bitter).

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Cloudy deep golden, faint head. Slight floral nose. Sweetish and fruity. Clean and rather lifeless with some boiled vegetables. No bitterness. Seems like Carlsberg Sweden has jumped the Russian Zhivoe trend and made an unfiltered version of their regular lager. I certainly welcome any unfiltered lager, but you can’t make a good beer just by not filtering a bad one.
