3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden body with a small white head. Nose is sweet grains, maize, pale malts and hints of dusty hops and butterscotch. Taste is pale malts, mild caramel, sweet maize and hints of dry grass and mild butterscotch. Light body, medium to high carbonation. Surprisingly pleasant and smooth drinking for a premium lager, with a finely tuned balance of hops vs. malts. Not bad at all.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Shared with McTapps. Beside its fine look it offers some fine, but watery aromas with a touch of rice, hops and some malt. Easy drinkabiliy paired with a hint of corn towards the end. Not bad at all.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear golden beer with a large white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, toffee, butter scotch and dried fruit. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, toffee, butter scotch and hay. Has potential but too many of Helsingborg’s bottom fermented beers have too much diacetyl.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample from bottle at Vecturamesse. Diacetyl, green apples in aroma and flavour. Way overpriced. Will re-rate if I get a full bottle - for free.
