33 cl Gustavsvik Relaxen Örebro. En helt smaklös öl dom ändå vinner lite på colhetsfaktorn att den är från Jamaica.

Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours perfectly clear & markedly pale. It’s got a small head that sticks around for a while.

The aroma is odd, I’m not sure I’ve ever smelled this beer before... but it smells strange. Yeah, it’s sweet with some cereal grain but there is something about it I can’t put my finger on, it’s not really offensive as far as beers like this go, so that’s cool.

The flavor has a little bit of cidery sweetness up front, but the finish is pretty dry. It’s got a little bit of hop spiciness and a low level of bitterness. It’s got some odd cereal notes, but generally it’s fine enough... I mean really for a light beer without much character, there isn’t a whole lot of offensive qualities to it either, which is neat.



Am I the only one who thinks the RateBeer style designation on this is a little screwy? The Bottle I have, which is different from the pic on the site (maybe the problem), claims it’s a Jamacian Style Lager, but you turkies have it pinned as a pale lager... where’s the respect for brewer’s intent, or is that just for "craft" beers?

Poured from a 12 OZ stubby into a pintglass. Aroma- sweet malt aroma Appearance- A light clear yellow with a thick white head Taste- A nice lager flavor that has a semi-sweet note with a little yeast flavor Palate- A light bodied beer with a smooth finish with some medium carbonation Overall- A good hot summer day beer, can be consumed in mass and is thoroughly enjoyable.

Stubby bottle from B&M. Pours gilden with a thin white head. The taste is light and refreshing but very short of flavour. Mild spiciness and grain. Typical lager.

gschrade (775) - Collinsville, USA - SEP 23, 2014
I had this at Global Brew. Pours yellow with a white head. Taste grass, sweet, like a bad lager. I thought this was bad. I wouldn't drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
