3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2010 500ml bottle. Amber, light beige head. Aroma of rich caramel, a bit of toast, touches of earth and grass. Taste has caramel, but it’s not all that sweet. Hazelnuts and some dry sherry. A little sourness. Quite pronounced bitterness at the finish features some metal. Not really my sort of thing but rather good. [3.1]
Trying again, this time on purpose. I bought the one above expecting a pilsener (ignorant as I am). Then I bought another by accident, enjoyed it rather more and was surprised to later look at my rating (the description’s OK, the score’s not). This is lovely: a balanced, tasty and gluggable drop.

bottle. Dark reddish brown. Aroma hardly noticebly but some vanilla and raisins. Brown frothy head that disappears quickly. Quite sweet taste with some soy and roasty malt. That typical lager sourness. Ok for a lager.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 5.5%. Quite malty aroma, a little syrupy. Clear grey amber colour. Big stable off-white head. The flavour is quite malty with a very faint aniseed note, hint of liquorice. The flavour lets on that there is more than 5.5% ABV. Low bitterness, but enough to balance the malt. Good body. Slightly low carbonation, very pleasant.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at Soldaten Svejk in Stockholm. It poured a clear dark golden liquid with a medium sized light brown foam that left a nice lacing. Weak smell of caramell and amalt. Smooth mouthfeel. Taste of malt, burned toast and lots of caramell. I didn’t enjoy this beer very much, way to much caramell and it had another taste that didn’t fit me.
