2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of yeast and malt, with notes of alcohol in thie long nose. Bitter, hoppy flavour with estery and malty notes, rather sweet. Lingering, bitter aftertaste. Not the worst Swedish lager I have ever had, which is already something. It would be better, though, if the rather eerie scent of cucumber liquid wasn’t there.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Ariel. Clear gold with white film. Some wet grass and wet bread aroma, some brine sourness that’s quite unpleasing. Light body, long, sour finish. Wrong.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Ariel. Clear copper with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, rotten sour vegetables and a bit of metal. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, rotten vegetables and some weird bitterness, rather metallic and unpleasant. Rather light-bodied. Pretty bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice warm off-white creamy head, clear amber body (swedish word "bärnsten" means amber), fluffy lacings, most of the head an lacings diminishes.
Aroma; caramel, grass, honey, butter.
Taste; caramel malts, grass, honey, hops playing in the grainy zone under it all, smokey notes now and then.
To palate easy, smooth, slightly oily, soft carbonated.
Finishes bitter-sweet, but most of all to the caramel side, some barbecue and smokey hints. Overall very tasty.

500ml Bottle (Thanks to my lovely girlfriend Kristiina!) - Amber in colour with a small head. Malty aroma with some fruity and hoppy notes. It tastes slightly sterile at first but then you detect that it is malty and hoppy and rather well balanced with raisins being noticeable in a fruity and hoppy finish.
