Flaska systembolaget. Gyllengul vätska med vitt skum. Doft av malt, gräs och bröd. Maltig smak med lite örter, hö och järn. Viss syrlighet och beska. Annars aningen tunn och vattnig

Didn’t know what to expect before opening this. Not that interesting at all. Some grain, grass and sweet malt, ends with low bitterness and almsot a little bit tart.

Ontape (424) - Valley Village, California, USA - JAN 23, 2015
500 ml bottle, about 6 months old. Pours like you’d hope, clear yellow with white head. Nose is cereal, almost no hops (freshness coming into play?) and not much else to speak of. Taste is similar with some light banana notes. Dry finish. It’s OK.

heavy (2195) - Split, CROATIA - JAN 9, 2015
Aug ’14. A 0.5 l can from a duty-free at Cologne airport. It poured pale golden body with medium sized head. Fine oily lemon aroma that reveal its ale character along with the fruity malt. Flavor was lightly sweet honey and apricot, also herbal bitter with subtle malty flavors but quite fine. Medium bodied. Pleasant and decent Kolsch.

ENG: 330ml bottle from DeVine store @ 104th St, Edmonton. Poured into the glass. Very light - straw and clean in color, almost no head. Aromas and taste are quite similar, and both are sweet-champagne-like, bit fruity. Very mild bitterness, very easy drinking. Good refresher. ///~~~///!///~~~/// ///~~~///!///~~~/// PL: Butelka 330ml kupiona w sklepie DeVine w Edmonton. Przelana do szkła. Bardzo jasna, słomkowa barwa, klarowna, niewielka piana, szybko zanikająca. Aromaty i smak są bardzo zbliżone, oba przypominają półsłodkiego szampana, trochę owocowe. Bardzo lekka goryczka, bardzo pijalne odświeżające piwo.
