2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
small white head on an amber body. This beer tastes a little better than its sister the Presiden lager, but not much. It could be more malty and generally have more taste.

Bottle. A great swedish beer. Not on a par with Postiljonen - also from Jämtlands Bryggeri - but still enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Big white creamish head. Foggy dark copper colored body. Good lacework. Smell of rounded, delicate sweet malts and a grassy/herbal hops. Taste is nicely balanced, refined malts blending well with fresh, noble hops. Strong body. Inviting bitter finish. One of the best pale/premium lagers I’ve ever tasted...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2009 Tap, Man in the Moon bar - Large white disappering head. Big heavy aroma for being a lager, with notes of caramel and herbs. Also hints of citrus fruits. Citrus becomes more evident in the flavor which mixes well with the slight hint of caramel. Nice complex hoppiness creates a high palate score. Much better on tap.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours a very bubbly pale amber with a big bubbly off white head. Aroma has loads of complexity - some roasted, some smoke, some dirt and a citric hoppyness. Flavour is surprisingly smoky or more likely ashy. A bit metallic as well. A powerful dose of citric bitterness hits me at the end. Well... this is miles ahead of other pale lagers, but still this isn’t as good as it could be. There are maltyness in there that is perhaps meant to disguise off-flavours, but it still isn’t too fantastic.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 Big coarseish offwhite shiny head. Reddish coppery body. Harmonic roasty malt aroma with notes of smoke, metal, earth, and hops. Dry smoky earthy taste of peas and malts, beautifully balanced and harmonic. Mild, soft, slightly slick mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry smoky caramelly peaty aftertaste with earthy spicy floral notes. Extremely harmonic and well balanced. I’m deeply impressed! (0.5l bottle from Systembolaget Stockholm. Rerated in 2013.)

Aroma of hops with the slightest whiff of alcohol. Mildly nutty flavour, full in the mouth with some hoppiness in the finish.
