1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma: Skunk alert! Goddamn green bottle. A bit of bready malt, otherwise this is musty, uninteresting, and bland.
Appearance: Very pale, clear, dingy, brassy yellow; almost the color of egg whites. White head is very fizzy but with adequate retention.
Flavor: Very bland. Corn, a bit of grassy hop bitterness and old hop cheesiness. Clean and crisp, like mineral water. Overall, a stereotypically lousy beer worthy of much lampooning.
Palate: Actually somewhat chewy, while at the same time effervescent. Not bad.
Overall: (Yawn!) If you’re looking for a bland, relatively unobtrusive beer, there are better and cheaper options out there.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml can poured into a lager glass. Appearance is clear straw colored with a medium sized frothy white head, that reduced quickly leaving a little lacing on the glass. Aroma of corn, lemon zest and wheat bread. Flavours of corn, wheat bread, lemon zest, honey and a hint of alcohol. Taste is light-medium sweet and light-medium bitter. Palate is light bodied, thin texture and average carbonation. Overall a plain lager that is slightly too sweet and the alcohol is somewhat noticeable in the flavour.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Archetypical Münchener Helles with sticky, more or less stable head and pale straw blonde colour, clear. Aroma of ’pils’ malt, hay and flowery hops. Malty taste, grassy, very light touch of vanilla or honey, dryer in the middle and finish and ending in a mild herbal hoppiness.

I actually thought this was a German beer until I turned 13, and it might have been, at one point. Of course, they do have a Lowenbrau tent at Oktoberfest, but I was too drunk to put two and two together

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can from Systembolaget. Odd smell to this one, like a mix between childs clay and fresh mushrooms. A bit earthy and weirdly funky. Sweet taste with very little alcohol. Artificial taste with some metall and that weird mushroom and clay aroma. Smooth mouthfeel but that is all this beer has going for. I can’t drink this.
