Bottle bought at IKEA in Dortmund. Pours out in a clear light golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of mild hops and straw. Taste of mild hops, light bread, straw, flowers and grains. Mild and refreshing finish. Not bad, but nothing nice either.

Got thaht one from Ikea in D*rtmund and shared with McTapps. Quite a simple with some rye, bit of corn and some bread. Easily drinkable, bit watery, good beer for a football night but a bit expensive, though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Ikea Delft. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, stale malt. Typical lager. The flavour is medium bitter with a watery malt, light hop bitter palate with a hint of citrus. Light bodied with average carbonation. Refreshing. Not so bad as lagers go.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Thanks Edwin:
Medium to bigger sized vast, creamy and thicker off white head, settles down slow, on top of a clear yellow colored beer.
Smell malts, barleys, hoos, some flowers, honey,
Taste is a pretty nice medium creamy mix of: honey, flowers and fruit, pils malts, light bitter, a very light acidity and some corn.
When there is honey in the smell and taste it might implicate that it’s an old or not fresh beer but this beer gives me the feeling that it is a bit crisp. Pretty nice actually.
Honey malty light dusty aftertaste.
Medium carbo, light spicy but soft mouthfeel, medium body and a watery to light watery texture.
I don’t think it’s that bad... Quite tasty for a pale lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Slightly muggy, grainy and strawy aroma. Taste is initially dry, strawy, papery, later minimally sweet, grainy malty with a lemon dash. Doesn’t improve my daily grind.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Green 330ml bottle: BBD of 15 Jun 2013: poured into a very tall and thin ’Harboe Beer’ vase shaped glass (I don’t own any Swedish beer glasses).
The flute showed off the beer nicely: good amber/golden body, bright and clear, on top a rich foaming head of pure white.
Odourless to be honest and almost tasteless too.
The brew is slightly malty and semi-sweet, but it offers nothing for my senses to get excited about. A bog standard, cheap tasting supermarket lager/pilsner: it didn’t upset me but it was boring.
Just an average lager and a bit of a disappointment all round: it looked like it might have some spunk, but sadly it didn’t.
