gnoff (9594) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2007
(50 cl can) Clear golden color, small white head. Grassy malty scent, with a touch of raw meat and protein drinks. Wery thin very metallic and bloody taste. Thin and spritzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Long not pleasant lingering metallic aftertaste.

ALLOVATE (2912) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2006
From a bruised and battered looking can into a pint, chilled from the fridge. As with ’jacob_wennbom’ it does look the part in the glass - though certainly all fog and mirrors. Big, dense, cauliflower head held out and laced well. The body a sunny gold, bright and finely carbonated. Downhill form there.
Eggy fart, tinny, cereal grain nose with thankfully nothing else. Very feint malts in the mouth peak out from under layers of plastic and soggy cardboard with just a pinch of cracked pepper in back. Finish is clean, watery and very crisp remaining so for the length. That is pretty much it, it has about as much life as ’Michelob Ultra’. Nothing but fizzy water overall. (50cL can, 04/02/07, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

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!

Can 500ml (BB 10/2006)

oh6gdx (25472) - 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 (25063) - 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
