3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pale yellow brown body. Frothy white head. Light hoppy aroma. The aroma is good, but hard to find. Light hoppy flavour. Ok balance. A nice lager. Has the fruity hints as other JB lagers. (Ånn, 19.03.08)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. A clear blonde beer with a big and persistent white head. Strange aroma with hops that give a "soapy" sensation. Light/medium body, hoppy, medium/high bitterness, and quite long aftertaste. Not totally balanced, but drinkable and refreshing. A strange Pilsner.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Biggish white shiny head. Faintly hazy yellow body. Sweetish earthy pea and flowers aroma, very harmonic. Dry floral, herbal aroma with notes of tea and peas. Harmonic. Slightly acidic lemony aftertaste. A bit too acidic for me. Might be too old. Should rerate. (0.5l bottle from Systembolaget, Stockholm. BBD is 2007/09.)

Dry crisp spicy. Hoppy, bitter, bubbly, sour. If you need a lager, this is was you need. Long live Evert Ljusberg!

Bottle thanks to Bager. Clear golden - white head. Grainy, light sweetness, nice bitterness, grass, dryness, light butter, hints of sourness. This could have been good - but isn’t !!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Crystal clear pale golden colour. White fluffy head that subsides quickly. Seemingly high carbonation level. Grainy malt aroma with crisp saaz hops. Crisp flavours with prickling sensation from carbonation. Refreshing hop bitterness and flavours. Light-bodied, and could perhaps have used a little more malt sweetness. Overall a delicious pilsener.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to celebrate Sweden’s national day. Pale golden colour, small white head. Fruity and grassy hop aroma. The hoppy flavours balance well the sweet maltiness, leaving a clean, dry finish. Good carbonation. I am not convinced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A fair white head covers the clear, very pale golden body. Impressively clean nose, immensely bready pils malts, to the point of hinting at butter or social tea biscuits - all in the utmost freshness. Underneath, soft herbal, grassy hops serve mostly a support function, procuring a certain crispness within precise, yet small bitterness. Dry palate, light-to-medium body, focused at drinkability. Just delicate and well rounded malts. A bit better than the ratings indicate I would say. That brewery is well beyond average at everything.
