3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle). Fresh aroma and flavor of malt and hops. Lingering and pleasant hops bitterness in the finish. A very good beer that rightly has a cult-stamp as pioneering within the Swedish beer brewing! Lundgren...Please! Come back!

Bottle. (old notes from 2007)
Golden yellow with a white fluffy head.
Good aroma of hops with some citrus. Sweet taste, the aftertaste was both bitter and with tones of bread. A good lager, unfortunately retired since 2007.

Bottle from the rake at home. Looks very good infact, crystal clear with nice lacing head. Aroma is clean pale malts, slightly soapy, but fresh and citrusy. Taste is pale and slight veinna malts, bit of mash breadyness, but clean and really well balanced. Very tasty stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow to orange with a one finger thick slowly diminishing white head. Very floral hops aroma. Flavour is light pinewood and loads of more floral notes. Mild caramel malt base with a light breadish note as the beer heats up. Growing dry bitterness in the finish. Reminds me a bit about a fresh Orval, I don’t get at all why this has been retired. One of my all-time favourites.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ The Rake, London.
Pours clear golden hay-coloured with a fine, creamy white head. Aroma is sweet malty with light balanced hops. High carbonation, almost spritzy. Flavour is soft and subdued, very chewy, a touch of metal. But a great fruity hoppiness that dries out well saves the day!
