UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 First rating
Draught at Ölrepubliken during "Närkevecka", on February 27, 2013
Hazy golden color, fairly big lasting cream colored head. Sweet, floral, summer meadow, weeddy flower scent after rain, bubblegum, curious and unusual, though not bad, scent. Sweet, herbal, floral, sugary, flower stems, some red berries, dew or rain infused meadow character taste. Sweet, herbal, bubblegum, floral aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, frairly moderate co2 level. Pretty low bitterness.
Since "Älgört/Älggräs" (Meadowsweet) was a farily common herb to use in flavoring of beer in sweden before hops became common this is an extra interesting beer for me. I now feel I want to pick some and make a beer of my own in this "old style" Swedish beer.
Uncommon but very nice and interesting scent and taste indeed.
After a while getting used to the first impressions I pick up loads of cinnamon on both and scent and taste that I didn’t get at first.

Draught at Bishops Arms Järntorget, on June 7, 2013.
Hazy honey color, fluffy white head. Floral, perfume, sassafras, fresh and nice scent. Fresh, perfume, floral, summer meadow after some rain and then sun taste. Floral, sassafras aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Very very nice, especially the scent, and I feel again I want to brew something similar for a homebrew.

Garlic_of_Doom (488) - SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2012
On tap at Tröls. Poured yellow with a 2 finger white head. Smells like chlorine and mead wort. Taste is as above, not very pleasant at all as chlorine is takes over hand - Mead wort is nice but is not a forward taste in this brew at all. The person who was number 3 in line after me handed his beer back as is only smelled like chlorine. First bad beer I’ve had from Närke.
