stefannilssons (1446) - SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2013
Det har visat sig att det faktiskt finns ett par trevliga folk-öl ute i de vanliga matbutikerna. Smaken är tradionellt brittisk, lite tråkig kanske, men med en bra kropp och en skön balans. Slutsats: förvånansvärt smakrik för att vara en folköl.

brnandersen (1793) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2012
500 ml. bottle from ICA, Jönköping, 24.7.2012. Small white head, light tan colour with golden hues. Sweet aroma with nuts, caramel and spicy-earthy hops. Taste is light bitter with some toffee sweetness behind. Light body with a thin texture, somewhat fizzy carbonation. Finishes lightly bitter with hops, but also a bit of malty sweetness. A very refreshing beer. Enjoyable despite the low abv.

Sweden, Scania, ICA (local supermarket). Pours amber coulered, small amount of white(ish) foam, slowly fading. Slightly malty nose. A somewhat watery taste, followed by a quite pleasant hopiness, which fades a bit too fast in my opinion - although, the mixture of spicy hopiness and lightly malted palate is rather satisfying even though it leaves you with a watery sense of longing for more (alcohol?). If you’re too lazy to go to "the system," this is quite a fitting alternative, I’d say.
