2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
0.33 L bottle from Systembolaget, Charlottenberg. Dense, medium sized near-white head. Body is crystal clear, plain gold colored. Modest aroma of quite clean, light sweet-scented malts. The hop aroma is not that inviting; old/rotten grass, wet cardboard and metal. Ok mouthfeel though, smooth almost creamy. Light to medium malty, lightly sweet, but quite harsh actually. Finishes fairly dry. Too many flaws to be a decent Lager.
