1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Golden/dark orange color, ok white head. Quite weak aroma from wheat and corn. Flavor is incredibly sweet with no balance at all. Gives me the feeling sugar has been added. Some honeynotes, and the sweetness is back in the flavor.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Adherent and compact foam, discreet duration. Color yellow dark, lightly amber, fizzy and diamond. Determined alcohol and malt notes. Amazingly full bodied and warmth. Determined end of medium persistence.
(bottled 2002 and 2003 italian versions [advertising puppets]).

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This can is quite hvid, yes, but the beer isn’t. Very clear copper-golden beer; just yellow tinted head, leaving shards of lace. Grassy nose, faint caramel, bit of solvent & glue. Sweet main taste, corn-like & caramel with a fleeting raw metallic-bitter impression. Turns dull-sweet in the finish as warm, decaying wet grass. MF like very watered-down milk and sugar. Metallic tang, light bodied. Bleeegh. Horrible thing - too dark and too sweet for a "pilsener". And the can claims only 5.6% ABV. Jacob, ask your money back.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear dark golden colored with a thin white head. Malt, little hop and toffee aroma with a sweet skunky tone. Thin flavor, slightly roasted with sugar notes. Quite sweet. Some caramelly notes in the finish. All right but uninteresting.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
(on bottle)Only an ounce better than "Blå". Smellls reallly rotten and sweet. like when an apple is pissed on and left in the sun for a week. The taste starts off kind o´malted, but soon turns very tangy and bitter. The high carbonation gives it a sodapop-ish feel.

Amber colour with a little white head that disappears fast.
Sweet aroma with notes of alcohol. Very carbonated. Sweet aroma with an OK bitterness.
I had this one after a Ceres X-Mas blå, I prefer this one.
