3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours pale golden with a frothy head that settles with a layer of thickish scum islands for the rest of the session. The beer is slightly hazy. Aroma is bready, munich helles like, with some sweet fruity scents. The taste is more bread and malt, backed up nicely with hop bitterness, that discretely lingers in the aftertaste providing some peppery tastes. This is one of my favorite swedish lagers, no doubt one of the best. But I think it has lost some of it’s freshness over the years. But this is a great lager, well comparable with the bigger houses from Munich. Well done!

Thought the Bitburger wasnt bad at all next to this one. Nice pilsner, but nothing standing out. Anonymous aroma.

For being a lager/pilsener it contains a lot of flavor and character. One of my favorites in that category of beers.

Flaska hemma - mycket ljus i färgen och tunn i kroppen, som förväntat. Inte så mycket arom och en snäll beska. Skumkronan försvann snabbt.

Golden with two fingers quickly disappearing foam. Aroma is malt-driven, with bread and also some citrus and grass notes. Taste is similar, but with a slight over cooked vegetables feel to it. Dry finish. An OK fresh, albeit slightly anonymous lager.
