I think this beer is commonly underated for its taste. It is a perfect blend for what it is trying to accomplish. I love the beer's finish, pours down very fine and never leaves not wanting more.

Definitely not a world-beater, but it has a crispness in it's flavor that I do enjoy.

Grolsch came very highly rated, and failed to deliver on expectations. Too sweet for more liking.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2003
Bottled. Golden. Rich, white, frothy head. Skunky aroma and flavour with a clear alcohol feel - to clear. A bit sweetish and plastic-like. In my youth I thought this was Polish, now I know it's worse...

Pretty good beer really. Very clean colour and taste. Not too much to say except its easy to drink and has no real problems.

Oh, that bottle. Nothing particularly special here. It's an average lager lacking anything further in complexity than that. I would not go out of my way to pick up another.

It has a very clear amber color which reminds me of Ginger Ale. It pours with a very nice head that slowly fades to nothing. Fairly fine bubbles give a lightness to the mouthfeel. This beer is somewhat sweet with hints of some fruit, perhaps its apple I taste. It also has a slight maltiness as well, with a different and interesting hp flavor on the finish. Overall, I'm surprised by the disguised sweet flavors, and a little impressed with this beer.
