larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2011
Medium offwhite head. Yellow body with strong carbonation. Strawy floral aroma with rubbery notes. Dry strawy milky floral taste with rubbery notes. Light body. Mild, yet abrasive, mouthfeel. Dry rubbery floral grainy aftertaste with metallic notes. It’s not too bad. (0.5l can, MaxiMat, Charlottenberg.)

Linnet (1673) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - FEB 2, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2011 Appearance: big white head, golden colour, lacing Aroma: hops, grass, straw, herbs, bread Flavour: hops, grass, straw, herbs, bread, distinct bitterness, a little thin. Mouthfeel: lacks a bit of body. Total: One of the best low alcohol beers you can get in Sweden.

rickgordon (3853) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2011
Bottled. Clear golden colour with fluffy, diminishing head. Skunky, metallic grass aroma, feels watery already. Metallic mouthfeel and watery. The feeling of dilution is obvious. Everything that’s in the 4,4% version is not here. Light bodied, light hop profile and light bitterness.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2011
Green 500 ml bottle from the supermarket. Looks pretty much like the original PU. The flavour is thinner, sweeter and lacking hop flavour. There are better 3,5% beers available.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - NOV 13, 2010
Straight from bottle. Actually, decent "hop" aromas with grass and the malt profile gives a nice, sweet finish. Not to bad carbonation, but when it gets warmer, the whole thing gets more transparent and boring. The moral is; Perfect from 0-10 degrees, good for the thirst

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 4, 2010
Botella. Served in a Pilsner Urquell footed pils glass: Clear golden with a big white head, rather short lasting, hardly any lacing. Skunky hoppy bit sweet grassy aroma, reminding me of my Heinekens days in the US in the early 90’s. Ok mouthfeel. Grassy soft hoppy flavour, bit skunky, mild maltiness, metallic towards the end. Soft short lasting bitterness. Pretty allright for a macro 3.5’er.

Marko (4948) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 21, 2010
Pale golden with a small white head. Sweet yoghurty grainy malty nose. Nice and Czech in a way. Weak socky dusty taste, light hop bite. Ok, I can understand maltiness being lower because of the lower alcohol percentage, but hop? Why? Ok, it’s still better than the average 3.5% Czech beer from Swedish market (out of 2 examples).

rosenbergh (10382) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2010
500 ml bottle. From Norrköping, Sweden.
Clear golden colour with small white head. Grassy skunky hoppy aroma (like in proper Pilsner Urquell) with some malty hay-y notes. Flavour is watered down. It’s mild skunky grassy hoppy with mild maltiness. Watery. Aroma is rather near the original, unfortunately flavour isn’t.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - AUG 18, 2010
Bevuta alla spina a Plzen dove si trova quasi in ogni locale. Che dire, ha un gusto diverso dalla solita urquell che arriva in bottiglia anche in Italia, č nettamente migliore, con un luppolo freschissimo che la rende 100 volte piů dissetante.

BillHick420 (456) - California, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Pours golden with a white head. Tastes sweet malty, with a fruity end. A decent pilsner.
