3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Den Nordiske Ølhandel, Copenhagen; 5.3% ABV; bb 17/04/14Cloudy golden color with small creamy head. The aroma is initially very fresh, hoppy, fruity, although some of that goes away quite quickly. The mouthfeel is a bit too weak and dry; the malt flavor has a cereals accent, and there is also some chamomile and very light bergamot; correct bitterness, with some citrus fruits and lime-tree; the final is dry and almost astringent.
Good beer, although not as much as the Summer Edition. Finally I was able to find this, but the price tag at Den Nordiske Ølhandel is quite high (about the double that Systembolaget).

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Super perfumey lager aroma. Some starchy grains. Perfume softens to being more floral, honey even. Palate is full, but sticky and sweet. Too sweet to be a thirst-quencher. Has some apples in the taste too. Finish is starchy. Half way to being a decent lager.
