LoFi (1524) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2011
Bottle. Pale golden with a white head leaving some lacing. Aroma: sweet malt, fresh citrus hoppiness. Taste: very fruity, citrus, grass, cookies (mördeg), fresh, low bitterness. The taste is a bit thin, I guess that is unavoidable. Light-bodied and thin with medium carbonation. Riktigt bra folkis!

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear yellow with a strange reddish tint and a small white head. Malty nose with a diacetyl touch. Light body, dry and dusty, somewhat fruity, a little cardboard. Dry and somewhat hoppy finish. I guess it’s hard to brew an unflawed Low Acohol on a small brewery. 100511

50cL bottle, courtesy of blomster. Thanks, Christer! Really excited to try this and the other 2.8% beer he brought over. Pours a bright, medium golden-straw color; high clarity; thin, fine-bubbled white head with light retention and lacing. Soft, rounded presence of Maris Otter malts in the aroma, along with a very light citrus hoppiness; balanced and crisp; the malt aromas pop, and the whole effect is a touch like fresh tea. Light to medium-light body; pretty high carbonation. Really nice presentation in the mouth, with only a touch of wateriness (generally filled out); modest levels of, again, Maris Otter maltiness and some zesty citrus and earthy hop bitterness and flavor (more pronounced than the aroma hints at); a touch of a crystalline sugar character, along with a slight tea-like texture that remains non-astringent; some really nice, well-integrated hop flavor comes through: citrus, floral notes. Hugely drinkable, and well handled. Medium-length finish showing pronounced toastiness and a bit of citrus bitterness lingering; nicely dry. I could drink this all day.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2011
bottle(thanks to Blomster) at my leaving FL throwdown(17Dec10)pours bright yellow with a medium white pillow of a head. Aroma is grassy malts and hops, very earthy and fresh smelling. Flavor is thin, but for a low alcohol beer this has surprisingly good flavor. Grassy grains, straw and dried grass with clean almost peppery hops.

12/17/10. Bottle shared by fata2683 - thanks, Keith! Clear, bright yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma is pilsner malt and a dash of sour hops. Surprisingly bitter flavor that reeks of pilsner malt and a bit of sour hops.

First low alcohol beer, thanks to Keith, little to no hop character, watery, malt, dough, actually refreshing. Quite good.
