3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy golden orange with an off-white head.
Aroma: bready sweet malt, grass, quite thin.
Taste: orange (peels), some grapefruit and grass over a bready malt base, medium bitter.
Summery and drinkable, but seems like it’s advertised as a lot hoppier.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden with a small white head. Sadly the aroma dominates of egg with some hay and malt in the background. Watery finish and turns flat quickly. Hopefully it´s just this bottle, will try a new one next week and hopefully change my rating.
UPDATE: Much better this time, fresh grassy aroma, hay, citrus. Sweet with a nice lingering bitterness to it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Systembolaget.
Fresh aroma of citrusy hops. There are also some vegitables, but like fresh ones in the spring, not boiled ones.
Very smooth citrusy brew, a bit hefe weissen-like but without the tartness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Det här är en imponerande lager med en skön arom och bra smak. Smaken i sig präglas främst av grape och gräs och kroppen är stabil för att vara en lager. Slutsats: en imponerande lager.
