2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber has a thousand different nuances. This is one of them of course, a bit of mist in the not totally clear liquid too, just like bärnsten/amber. It has a yellow tinted average head, doesn’t smell much, doesn’t taste much. Some hops, average bitterness. Very much a standard lager. I expect more from Jämtlands.

Bottle, 50cl. Pours a dark amber/golden beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is weak with some hops. The flavor is malt with hops (grapefruit). The palate is dry. Overall an average beer.

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are bitter hops, caramel, malt and notes of fruit. Tastes more like a bitter to me.

A nose of citrus an hops. Taste is initially mellow and smooth and contains butter and citrus. Jämtlands hussmak takes over a bit though.

Bottle from Systembolaget
Pours amber with a white head
Fruity taste and the body/mouthfeel is more like an ale than a lager.
Rated one month past bb-date.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2009 Bottle. Clear golden to amber color with a mediumsized white head. Aroma of flowers, citrus and some bready malt. Flavour is quite malty with some light hoppy citrus notes and a medium bitter finish. Smooth mouthfeel, body is medium, carbonation is soft. A nice beer with good thirst quenching abilities - probably a good choice when you want something as far away from complex as possible, but still with some taste.

Bottle. Medium high fluffy but lasting off-white head. Clear amber body. Sugary, fruity, honey aroma. Candylike. Mild barley malt flavor with a nice bitterness, low carbonation, long aftertaste. Better than expected.
