jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2006
This beer looks actually not all that bad when poured up in a glass. Brass-ish in color with a white (suprisingly long lasting) foam. Aroma is grainy but thin. Except for a sticky metallic smell. Taste is hardly anything but metal. I guess I also sense some floral hoppy flavors when I flush the beer around in my mouth but since doing that is quite repulsive it’s not likely to happen anyway. The mouthfeel is very thin and even though this is a 3.5% beer, I still sense a small sting of alcohol. I suppose this is much like what iron and water (in holy matramony) whould feel like. Martens 3.5% Lager might very well be the worst beer I’ve ever had. However, that won’t stop me from having it again. It’s extremely cheap where I live, and nothing get’s me in a better mood than crappy beer for a small amount of money. At least on some days. Cheers!

oh6gdx (23202) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 15, 2006
Canned. Golden colour, big foamy white head. Skunked and acidic hops in aroma. Flavour is malty, cartboardish and metallic. You have to love this one....atleast for being a good example of what a lager should not be like...

Papsoe (25072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) 2,7% ABV in my (Belgian - not Swedish) version. Pale golden with a lovely, creamy head. Nice malt in both nose and flavours but it suffers from an almost complete lack of body, no fullness, no alcohol - and very watery. 190999

Dorqui (2150) - Brescia, ITALY - JUN 5, 2005
Canned. Adherent and light foam. Limpid yellow color and much effervescent one. Watery and metallic scent. Light and unpleasant taste, artificial and aluminum aroma. Little long-lasting and bitterish finish.

larsniclas (6186) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2004
Canned. Pale golden with a frothy head. Some metallic aroma. A lot of carbonation, almost no flavour, extremely thin and watery. Maybe a bit maltiness.
