Translation from the label.
"Already in the 17th century lobster from Bohuslän was sent to The Royal Court in Stockholm. Our swedish lobster hav ethroughout the centuries defended it’s position as a delicacy worthy kings. Just in time for the lobster season has brewmaster Robert Bush - Grebbestad Bryggeri along with sommelier Niclas Pihl - Restaurang Sjömagasinet and the Swedish Lobster Academy created a beer, HUMMER. The beer is especially suitable to lobster and other seafood. The brew is limited to approx. 20000 bottles. The hand crafted HUMMER is a full malt beer. Among the malt varieties used is, alongside pilsner-and caramell malt also wheat malt, which gives HUMMER a soft and fresh character with some acidity. The German hop variety Perle and the American Cascade is in hormony with the flavour of seafood."

NB. Hummer is swedish for lobster.

From a bottle (50 cl) at SMÖF-08. Clear golden, medium white head. Fruity malt aroma with floral and grassy hops. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Slightly sweet and would certainly gain from some more bitterness.
