3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The name Hell must from the brewery’s side certainly turn to the deeper place where there is very hot. The label has a shield with clear signs of its associations with the devil; horns and tail! If we look into the German-style lager world, the name Hell clearly expect a golden lager, so with the mindset is the name actually chosen. Whether Jämtland have used one or another philosophy at the naming, this is all a Swedish lager. Foam is limited. Lovely hoppy aroma, almost like a British IPA or perhaps an ESB. The taste is flowers, light fruit species and good solid hops are lengthy. The finish is dry, and it is truly a nice lager which is very high in my conception of how a pilsner should taste. It is especially the hoppy aftertaste that emphasizes the perfection.

Bottle @ home. Almost clear golden color with a medium white head. Nose is slightly sweet and more fruity with oranges, lemon zest, some pine needle and balancing maltiness. Hoppy taste of oranges, pine needles, mango, subtle toffee, wheat, bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Balanced bitter finish with lingering lemon zest. Very nice overall balance.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml brown bottle poured into a lager glass. Appearance is slightly hazy straw colored with a small frothy white head, that reduced quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of lemon zest, orange peels and apricots. Flavour of lemon zest, orange peels, apricots and a hint of butterscotch. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is a light-medium bodied, slightly oily texture and average carbonation. Jämtlands Hell is unusually bitter and hopped for a lager, citrusy flavour profile with suppressed malts, pretty good overall.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad vätska. Doftar lite beskedligt av bröd och säd. Smaken ligger i en division för sig. Perfejt balanserad med ett medelångt avslut.

Clear, golden colour with big head. Fresh, hoppy aroma with flowers, citrus and pine resin. Palate is light. Lacks the bitterness I remember from earlier batches many years back. Light hoppy notes, some citrus, very moderate finish.

Bottle at Tröls. One of my favourite lagers all-time and probably my favourite Swedish lager. Excellent.
