2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours a brilliant medium golden, under a finger of snowy white head. Sweet malt drops aroma with hint of herbal hops and a weird banana-like fruitiness. Taste is sugary malts and fruit candy. Noticable earthy and herbal bitterness. Light to medium full. Slick. Harsh-ish malty, herbal-hoppy ending.

Ytterligare en pale lager som jag inte kan skilja från de andra. Absolut inget fel med denna men heller absolut inget extra.

carbonation. Perfumy jasmine aroma with herbal papery notes.
Dryish minty grassy herbal taste with earthy strawy notes.

quite hoppy, but a bit harsh and rough. (0.5l bottle, Hotel

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at Haket, Goteberg while talking with the brewer. Pours golden with a white head. Big malt and bread in the aroma. Flavour is medium bitter, more malt and a little citrus hops. Lower carbonation than I would expect. A nice example of the style.

Bottle, dark gold.
I feel they have managed to make an old fashioned stronger Scadinavian lager here, Malty body, long bitter flavour from tha aromatic hops. But not very exiting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget and consumed on January 20. Pours golden with a frothy white head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace. Smell is bready and slightly stale with yeast, some fruit and grass. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter with lots of yeasty bread, some fruit and butterscotch. Finish is sweet and slightly bitter with golden syrup and yeast. Good for a pale lager but still a pale lager...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Overall, this is one of the better lagers I’ve had in quite some time, even if it did taste a bit off. The pour is no surprise: good lacing, mild head, and a pale golden color. The nose is where it seemed a bit off (in a good way), being somewhat funky, almost sour, with a nice apple aroma. The taste is mild, smooth and well rounded. A very mild bitterness gives way to an ever so slight sourness in the finish, but only slight. Whatever the reason for the sourness might be, I found that to be the best part of this lager (I love barnyard flavors). The mouthfeel is creamy and somewhat sparkling, reflecting its respectable amount of carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
03.04.2011. 0,5l Bottle. Systembolaget Strömstad. Yellow colour with white head. Aroma is malty witha very good bitterness. There is an aromatic bitterness with a little sour notes and there is also summer freshness and flowers. I think this is a very good pilsner. Why is this listed as a pale lager?
