2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Swedish supermarket: Pours amber with a slightly creamy head. Aroma is pale, slightly sugary malt, with barely a hop or two. Taste has some slightly roasted malt flavour in there. The body is, however, somewhat watery. Slightly interesting, but not very good.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle bought at Coop Forum Kiruna. Shared with Finn. Clear, amber coloured body. Diminishing white head. Modest, plain malty smell, semi-sweet. Malt-fruity taste with a careful roastiness. Discreet bitter endnotes. Thin and rather diluted, but quite possible to drink and like (Tromsø, 30.05.2012).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The foam will disappear pretty quickly. Good bitterness and smooth malt flavor. I miss, however, toffee flavor that is normally found in the English ales.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaske 0,5l kjøpt inn av Rune på Coop Forum, Kiruna. Delt med ham under rateseanse i WC-veien 30 Mai 12. Gyldenbrun. Middels luftig skum. Forsiktig maltaroma. Smaken svakt fruktig med en undertone av røstet malt. En utvannet utgave av originalen - men gjenkjennelig,

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber, off-white head.
Fruity, sweet and grainy malt, not that high bitterness.
Not bad for a low ABV beer, but probably won’t buy it again.
