3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear golden amber with a quite good off-white head. Theres a lot of caramel/butterscotch on the nose. Like sweet burnt butter. This buttery aroma totally takes over and I can hardly detect anything else. Taste is sweet, buttery and caramelly which leads to a smooth bitterness that ends quite bitter and dry. Jämtlands beers really have their own character, and I kind of like it actually.

For some reasons I have managed to miss this beer on several occasions. When I finally had it, I found it just as good as one can expect from the best brewery in Sweden. Well mixed aroma with the hops dominating. Hoppy and malty flavor with a quite mild finish.

Bottle at SMÖF 2010. It poured a clear copper liquid with a ring of foam on the edge of the glass. Malty and caramel flavour. Semi smooth mouthfeel and light body. Not one of Jämtlands better lagers.
Earlier Rating: 9/6/2009 Total Score: 2.7
It poured a clear dark golden-amber liquid with a medium sized foam that left some lacing. It had a scent of grassy hops, malt and hay. It had a taste of grassy hops, malt, something sweet and a hint of caramell. It also had some acidicy and wasn’t very smooth. A very nice lager, but only a decent beer.

Bottled at Mosebacke, Stockholm. Cloudy amber, creamy head. Floral perfumy nose. Mid sweet with clean rounded mouthfeel and medium body. Clean crystal malt profile, notes of grass, butter and minerals. Salty finish.
Earlier Rating: 7/15/2002 Total Score: 3.8
Initially it was by all likeliness the most bitter of commercial Swedish beers. Like a bottom fermented IPA. Now it seems slightly toned down, resulting in better balance.
The rare cask conditioned version is even better, sporting more chewy maltiness and wonderful complexity.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Glowing amber color with a great wild sparkling carbonation. Small creamy white head leaving thick lacing in the glass. Aroma is fresh sweet malt with caramel and a touch of grapefruit. Flavor is smooth malt with a caramel sweetness perfectly balanced with a grapefruit hoppiness. Very pleasant contribution from the boys up north in Jämtland.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden body with tanned frothy head. Malty and hoppy aroma. Heavy pine bitter and light alcoholic with a long lasting sweetness and a metallic hint in the finish. Medium bodied. Carbonation on the heavy side. Unbalanced and too rich for a lager. But definitely drinkable.
