thewolf (11591) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2007
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.

larsga (6824) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2007
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.)

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2007
Aroma of hops with the slightest whiff of alcohol. Mildly nutty flavour, full in the mouth with some hoppiness in the finish.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2007
500 ml bottle. Glowing amber golden colour. Crystal clear. Tall white coarse head. Bold grainy and malt aroma balanced by a sharp grassy hop aroma. Notes of straw. Crisp malt flavours. The texture is somewhat powdery. There is a slight astringent flavour in the finish. Lots of hop flavours, but they are a bit sharp. Not a favourite lager, but decent. It could have done without the grainy astringency though.

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2007
Pale amber, clear body mounted by a fair white head. Very grainy and fairly toasty malt character comes across with a certain hard to pinpoint fruitiness. Almost biscuity in its revealings. Rich malts and they are complemented by generous hops, mostly floral. The mixtures makes it indeed rather fruity for a lager, almost apricot-like, but all clean. Round palate, ale-like in size and hop proportions. Audacious. Another low-profile star in the atypical and cohesive Jämtlands lineup.

ekstedt (6089) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2007
Bottle. Pours wonderful amber, slightly hazy, with medium creamy off-white head. Solid malt character with some dried fruits and light toffee notes, along with herbal and citrusy hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Very dry and bitter finish, with some acidity.

Grovlam (4176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2007
Bottle from trade with lagomswedish, thanks buddy this was actually a big surprise both on delivery and tasting! Initial appearance was very impressive with a huge fizzy white head that lasted forever. Body was clear and sparkling with a light amber color. Aroma was a wonderful palette of hoppy and malty notes. Some grain, fruit, spicy, caramel and light elder flower like notes is present in nose. Medium bodied with a dry texture and a lively carbonation. Flavor was light bitter with notes of sweetness. Finish was at first dry and slightly bitter. But somehow the bitterness turns into a lovely caramel sweet aftertaste that lingers in the mouth for a long time. Excellent stuff as you promised Darren!

rbesg06, on tap at plain kitchen. i dunno, i couldn’t get too excited about jamtlands, maybe they used to be better. this had a dusty aroma, easy smooth texture and moderate bitterness, not a whole lot to make it stand out from a typical lager

lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2007
After my recent trip to Copenhagen (where my rather low opinion of pilsner was not improved by drinking lots of Carlsberg) it was with a sense of mild trepidation that I prized the cap off of yet another pilsner. But I needn’t have worried, as Jämtlands has somehow managed to produce a pilsner with the many of the characteristics of an ale. Rather than the normal neutral-tasting fizzy cabbage water I was treated to a beautiful amber coloured pilsner (bärnsten means amber in Swedish) that was bursting with tropical fuits, peppary spices, caramel malt and a puff of hairspray. The signature Jämtlands aromas were all there too, as well as a cracking long-lasting bitterness. I’m not sure if this really is pilsner but if it is I’ve been converted.

MiP (14519) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2007
Bottle, 5.0%. Amber colour. Sour bitterness, but not bad. Abit fruity. The sourness makes for good balance, helps the beer go down well. Not complex, but pleasant.
