COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lundgren's Lager is a golden-hued beer with full body and a beautiful aromatic taste of hops. A more bitter beer is probably not commercially brewed in Sweden but the refreshing character with touch of honey and citrus makes the beer extremely smooth, in spite a bitterness of 40 BU.

(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!

gyllenbock (4397) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2010
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.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2009
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.

renffisch (757) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2008
33cl bottle @ the rake. Definitely my favourite lager outside of austria. Floral hop nose. Golden colour, slowly diminishing white head. Soft metal and spruce notes in flavour. Elegant bitter notes in the finish. beautiful beer. Big fan! i agree with yespr. Why did they retire it i don’t know.

yespr (30631) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 26, 2008
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.

thewolf (11099) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 22, 2008
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!

mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2008
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Hoppy on the nose - some tropical fruits and citrus together with a malty caramel. Flavour is quite bitter - grape fruit. Also some malty caramel.
