Bottle. It poured a clear sparkling yellow with a light golden hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that diminished almost completely but did have some retention throughout thus producing some fair lacing. The aroma was pretty basic for a lager. The nose was crisp with a mild grain malt, a moderate grassy hop and a somewhat barnyard scented yeast with a light odor of wet cardboard. It tasted very mildly sweet and acidic at first, and then became slightly bitter with a mild crisp hoppy flavor at the end that stayed with you just long enough to put a nice finish on this brew. Mouthfeel was nice and light in body and a bit watery in texture with a nice light creaminess. The carbonation was quite lively, almost fizzy. Overall as I stated before, it is a nice crisp hoppy lager. One I have drank in the past and will again in the future. Very Drinkable!!

Swing-top bottle. Pours clear gold; medium white head dissipates quickly. Some thin lacing. Light malt nose with some grassy and grainy notes. Sweet caramel malt with honey. Pleasant bitter finish with a touch of resin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nah ... tried it once. Although the bottle us cool, once was good enough. I bought a six pack on a beer voyage & was thinking this was going to be my beer of choice (price & bottle) ... nope. too harsh for my taste. Half a bottle & gave the rest away. Disappointed. \m/

MSBrindbergs (379) - Solna, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2014
Flaska från SB. Snygg mörkgul klar vätska. Doftar ganska sjysst av malt och gräs. Bra lagersmak utan metall och en hyfsad beska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very thin grassy aroma. A lovely golden color with soft bubbles, balanced foam in a pilsner glass. Poor taste, wheaty water, but a very agreable palate. I would drink that while eating, so it doesn’t taint my food.

Jultsu (187) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2014
500ml tölkki. Isohko nopeasti häipyvä vaahto, peruslager. Hivenen hiilihappoinen tuoksu. Hapokas suutuntuma, kuiva, hieman limainen. Kokonaisuus aika keskinkertainen.

Not only does it come in the best beer bottle in the world, it’s got a bit more character than its Dutch counterparts. It’s also a bit more bitter, which makes me a fan.
