Forgive me if I give this good reviews, but damn I love Jämtland brewery beers. Which beers they do. Anyway this beer smells great and tastes loads of goodies. The aftertaste was a little weak but okay. Drinking this beer is enjoying life. It feels like time stands still. But still no top rating due to weak aftertaste.

Jämtlands remains one of the best breweries in Sweden and this remains one of their finest. Unfortunately most pubs, even in Jämtland (the region of origin) itself seem to no longer have it on tap and only on bottle. This beer has lots of taste of hops and the colour is none other than bärnsten (amber).

Besides the slightly burnt malt character, all you can taste is the hops. Citrusy piney hops. Very hoppy. Bittersweet. Doesn’t really taste like a Pilsener, more like an IPA or bitter or something. Very tasty anyway, bitter hoppy finish, i love it, Jamtlands is one of my favourite brewers. Thanks Per!!!

Amber coloured. Offwhite lasting head. Has a malt chocolate aroma. The flavour is hoppy as hell. Dominates all other flavours but still its very pleasant. Is very bitter in the aftertaste in a good way. Definately a very good pilsener. Outranks most scandinavian pilseners i’ve tasted.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2006 Amber coloured. Very hoppy and citric aroma, hints of wheat. Taste is brutal and hoppy, citrus, ryebread and grapefruit. Long bitter finish with some bready notes together with wheat and ginger.

The foam is thin and white. The colour is clear amber (“bärnsten” is amber in Swedish).
The smell is full of malt, Challenger hops and a bit sourish.
The carbonation is balanced, long lasting and just right for this kind of beer.
The taste includes the characteristic Jämtlands Bryggeri-elements: A fine dry bitterness, lots of balanced malts and lots of Challenger and maybe some Bramling hops. The aftertaste is bitter and well bodied.
Solid, as expected from these fine brewers!

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 Keg @ The Ardbeg Room, Stockholm
Maybe the last chance to drink this beer as it is rumored to be discontinued. Not confirmed, though. This is usually my favourite beer from this brewery. This glass, however, was probably old and maybe badly kept. A distict hay aroma and a whole lot of butterscotch in taste. Notes of cardboard indicating some oxidation and no aftertaste whatsoever. Quite disappointed and I’m confused wether I should rate this glass or the way it used to be... It has to be this one, I’m afraid... (Normaly this beer would probably end up with 4+) 4/4/4/3/8 2.3

We have normality! This beer will NOT be discontinued. A well balanced sweet maltiness is here with a distinctive bitterness and a flowery aroma and taste. Some toffe present. Nice and long aftertaste. Nothing wrong with this. Gimme another one!
