5.2% version. Amber with a foaming white head, dissipating. Washed out malts with dulled bitterness lingering around in the back somewhere.

First I think of a really strong beer where they are trying to hide the alcohol behind sweet flavors, but it is not very strong – quite normal. Like a bland lager that somebody added a bit of syrup to. Inspite of that – not too bad. I could have another one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber color, nice head, fizzy. Nice sweet malty aroma. Taste is smooth, pithy and malty sweet. Light bitter aftertaste. Not a really highlight but although not bad. All in all quite overall.

Didn’t really like this. Not that complex and far too watery for my taste. If I see this again I think i’ll pass.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 5,2 %.
Amber colur, poor head. Grassy and fruity aroma. Rich in malts and fruity flavour with notes of toffee. The carbonation is a bit disturbing. An ordinary beer.
