VsXsV (3872) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2011
50 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear, amber (as the name would suggest) liquid with medium frothy off-white head. Aroma is quite malty with notes of caramel, noble/floral hops, butter and fruit. Taste is quite dry with medium to high bitterness (for the style) and similar notes as the aroma. Well balanced and highly drinkable. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Good, refreshing beer.

Svesse (7727) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2011
(Bottle, Hamrestugan, Duved, Sweden, 20 March 2011) Golden amber colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with orange peel, buttery malt and toast. Malty, fruity taste with notes of bready malt, toast, orange peel and a mild citrussy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with some malt sweetness. Tasty and fresh. Quite nice, specially after a whole day of skiing.

(Draught at MacKinlay’s, Stockholm) Colour is pale amber (no surprise, the word bärnsten actually means amber), with foamy head. Nose is fruity, hoppy with citrus and some roasted notes. Taste is hoppy with citrus, caramel and hints of toffee and nuts. This is a very nice beer, but I do think it was even better (and somewhat more hoppy) before. Very good balance between the fruit, hops and the roasted malt.

RuneStumo (2542) - Haugesund, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2011
15.01.2011. 0,5l Bottle. From Systembolaget Charlottenberg. Golden yellow colour with a white head. A lot of carbonation gives a frothing head of foam. Aroma is sour with stinging flavours of wild yeast and home made white wine. There is most certenly something wrong with this bottle. Thats the reason for the low rating.

Mad_Ferret (977) - SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2011
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.

rlgk (17322) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2010
Bottle at SMÖF 2010. Golden colored beer with a small head. Diacetyl aroma, buttery and malty. Malty, spicy hoppy flavor. Hoppy grassy finish.
Earlier Rating: 10/3/2004 Total Score: 3.8
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.

olsvammel (5752) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2010
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.

omhper (23012) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2010
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.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - JUL 18, 2010
