1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled. Bright yellow, brief fizzy head. Dry and rounded with some grassy hops. Harsh and unrefined with an unbalanced resiny finish. This smells cheaply made German supermarket beer a long way.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Fully golden with a slight haze, decent head. Has a somewhat "homebrewed" touch though I’m not really able to define this further. 040603

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Colour is clear, bright yellow, the white foam builds a firm head (I could even observe a trace of a crater) that’s slowly descends to a thin, rugged lid.
The smell is unexpectedly strong: The dominating note comes from sourish hops, but there are also hints of sweetness, some wet leather, rye bread and maybe even a touch of smoked ham.
The carbonation is at first a little sticky, then well balanced with the bitterness, making this beer a refreshing and somewhat bracing experience.
The smell is at first quite mild, but soon a grapefruit-like bitter tone emerges followed by an almost lactose-like sweetness. Then, the tastes blends into a pleasant blend of sweetness and bitterness that taste... "Swedish Lager Beer". An almost chemical touch of sweet malts develops into a bread-like flavour with some bitterness. The long lasting aftertaste makes the tongue look for bitterness in the whole mouth cavity.
I think that this is a worthy example of its style, with a little extra twist.
This beer is (at least in September of 2004) only sold at the Systembolaget in the rural village of Ödeshög, Sweden, and maybe some restaurants.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale yellow, small dissapearing bubbly head. Unclean malty and metallic aroma. Horrible flavour...thin, metallic and unclean. Lot’s of iron in finish.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light yellow with a very thin head. Has a weak marlt aroma that brings some dough. Flavor is about nothing until some bitterness shows up in the finish and stays for a while. Really thin.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow with firm white head.
Malty aroma with sulfur tones.
A bit herbal.
Malty flavor with tones of biscuits. A bit metallic with normal bitterness. Nothing to write home about but still a contribution to a better beer world.
