Marsiblursi (3002) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2007

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2007
Pale golden with a very small white head. Aroma of diacetyl, grass and sweet white bread. Flavour is the same but thinner, lots of stale bread. Very average.

oh6gdx (20313) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2006
Bottled. Golden colour, small white bubbly head. Aroma is butterscotchy and diacetylic. Flavour is the same. Boring and one dimensional. Weak hoppyness might be in aftertaste, but that seems a bit rubbery too.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2006
<!-- i -->Bottled<!-- /i --> (BB 03/2007).<!-- br --> Pale yellow, small white head. Diacetylic, butterscotchy aroma. Woody hoppy but (of course) watery. Plastic-hoppy aftertaste. Not too bad 2,8 beer.

jacobwennbom (352) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2006
Golden with small white head. Medium body. Aroma is fresh, grassy hoppy notes but overall kind of week. Taste is better than aroma, grassy, bitter and just a little bit sweet. Taste is quite strong for a N/A beer. Very cheap as well and that’s always good.

larsniclas (5607) - Billdal, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden, bubbly head, lost of bubbles. Bready and papery in both aroma and flavour. Thin.

rlgk (10514) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2005
Golden with a quickly disappearing white head. Hoppy, grassy aroma. Flavor is more malty, with toffee notes. Some hops in the finish. Quite ok to be a 2.8, Id like to one day taste the "real" beers from this brewery...

omhper (19370) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2005
Bottled. Golden colour, brief head. Evident saaz aroma. Vry thin with some butterscotch. Mildly hoppy finish. Lacks body.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2005
Bottle. The colour is pale yellow, the airy foam forms a small white head, and then it dissolves completely.

The smell is dusty with some notes of butter toffee and some indeterminable bitterness.

The carbonation is strong and short.

The taste is sweet with a synthetic taste of malt; there are notes of perfume and butter. I noticed a weak but sharp bitterness, but the overall flavour is musty and unpleasant.

This is, by far, the worst beer that I have drunk in all my life. A look at the table of contents might explain quite a lot of that artificial taste: “Water, malted barley, sugar, hop flavouring, hops.”

I found it at the low price supermarket “Willy’s” for SEK 3:98 (approx. US ¢50) for half a litre.

Terrible stuff. No, really!
