COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Carlsberg Falcon Special Brew är ett öl med lite mer kropp, perfekt att avnjuta i TV-soffan. Ölet är framtaget för alla som älskar öl och som vill att det ska smaka lite mer. Special Brew är ett lageröl precis som Falcon Export, men är mer kraftfull i sin karaktär. Falcon Special Brew har balanserad maltig smak med markerad beska. För att ölet ska smaka fylligare är alkoholhalten också något högre än i de andra ölen i den redan stora Falconfamiljen. Falcon Special Brew 5,9% säljs på Systembolaget. Ingredienser: Malt, humle, jäst och källvatten Alkoholstyrka: 3,5% och 5,9% Förpackning: 50 cl burk Hållbarhet: 7 månader

What makes this brew so special I have no idea. In fact, I find it to be a pretty standard 3.5% lager. Decent body, decent hpppy bitterness and a somewhat bready maltiness does the 3.5%- trick. But again, much like this review, there is really nothing speial about it.

larsniclas (5613) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2007
Canned. Goledn with a brief, white head. Some sweet maltiness and some sourish artificial junk. Very thin with some faint bitterness. Bland and boring.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2007
Canned (Thanks SADESA!). Deep golden colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is grainy and slightly hoppy. Flavour is malts, hops and some grassyness. Actually a surprisingly clean thing.

rlgk (10655) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2007
Canned. Golden color, ok white head. Fruity aroma, a bit citric and with some dough. Flavor starts off malty ,but then turns into that typical flavor only swedish folköls can bring. Somewhat hoppy finish.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2007
Bottled. Golden colour. Pretty big, firm rocky head. Oranges dominates the aroma, and I find hints of butter. Pretty much reminiscent of the stronger version, yet much lighter of course. Flavour is a bit weird, plenty of subtle off-flavours - it’s chemicals like plastic or so. Watery mouthfeel and a tiny hoppiness is also found. Light light bitter. One of the better efforts from the big C.

omhper (19380) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2007
Canned. Golden colour, relatively firm head. Some orangey notes in the aroma. Medium sweet with light body and clean mouthfeel. Some grainy malt and the lightest touch of orangey hops. Dusty, salty finish. One of the more tolerable efforts in this department.

(50 cl can from Coop) Clear copper color, medium size white head. Fruity hoppy scent, not bad, though a bit thin. Some metal in the back. Malty buttery taste with some grains and metal in the aftertaste. Thinner than medium mouthfeel, a bit too spritzy for me. Low bitterness.
