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 (13596) - 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.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2007
This beer has an extra ordinary beautiful amber color and a nice, huge, white and lasting head. The aroma has notes of hops and fruit. The flavour is very delicious and full-bodied with notes of aroma hops, fruit, caramel, a very light sweetness and a nice citrussy bitter finish. A truly great pale lager, I love it - thank you Jan, for sending me this one!!! 1710

Miksu (4947) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2006
0,5 l bottle. Copper color with creamy head. Malty but rather dry aroma with cumin, citrus and herbs. Dryish salty bitter and malty flavor with citrusy and herbal hop flavor.

yngwie (13350) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2006
Bottled. Clear, golden with a beige head. Alcohol (!), hops, fruits and resin in the aroma. The flavor is resiny, with notes of malt. Medium body and a long bitter finish. Can’t really enjoy those Jämtland lagers. (061013)

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2006
Light, slightly cloudy copper with a small dissapating white head. Aroma of grain, malts, citrus and fruit. Strong body, with flavours of grain, peach, lemon, yeast and light toffee. Medium length malty finish, maybe could have had some more aggressive hopping.

stouby (3716) - Holbæk, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2006
Draught at the Rover. Dark golden with a large beige creamy head, small lacings. Aroma moderate malty (caramel) and hoppy. Flavor moderate sweet and bitter. Light body, watery.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2006
Draft at Plain Kitchen, Göteborg. A very smooth beer. Very tasty, lots of fruit in there. Is it a pilsener, it is in no way typical of the style. Another winner from Jämtland.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2006
Aroma is sweetish like a blonde ale. Taste is lagerish but with a sourness, which is a bit wierd really.
