@ Ystad. Malty and grainy, quite sweet with alcoholic notes, light to medium body with a watery texture. The finish is dry, bitter and sweet malty.

Pours yellow with a thin head. This is not a good beer. Feels like a 5.2 boosted to 6,9.

A little more pressure and taste in this beer compared to Mariestads Export, probably because of the alcohol content. Have been drinking tastier beers than this, but still pretty good.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 500ml brown bottle, labelled Old Ox 6.9% ABV, poured into a lager glass. Appearance is clear light golden with a large frothy white head that reduced rapidly. Aroma of wheat bread, maize, hay and alcohol. Flavours of wheat bread, alcohol, processed sugar and a hint of caramel. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Palate is thin bodied, slightly oily texture and average carbonation. Old Ox is a surprisingly poor brew considering that Mariestads Export is an okay lager. Unpleasant flavour dominated by alcohol. A 500ml bottle is too much, difficult to drink and when the beer warms up it gets significantly worse.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma; hops and malts, some alcoholic fragrances.
Golden body, diminishing white head, some lacings.
Taste; spicy caramellic malts, grassy hops, very few bitter herbs.
Slightly dry on palate. Finishes with bread, sour syrup, warming alcohol in the background, a little grainy bitterness.
The brewery describes this beer as "bocköl", but I consider that Ratebeer is correct that this beer is "Strong Pale Lager".
