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.

Love this "folköl". The best 3.5 %-beer you can buy in Sweden. Which is necessary unless you wanna visit Systembolaget.

More a gorgeous bottle of English style! With an amber copper to pour into the cup features a dense foam, high and beige. A beer apparent carbonation. In arome note is beautiful doses of hops and malt in a slightly sweet background. As for taste follows the aroma of line with a more apparent hop as a whole being well herbaceous and very slight citrus taste. Together we can appreciate especially the malt with notes of caramel. Call it means spicy in the mouth with its high carbonation. The end of this bitter English is balanced, balancing your bitterness with sweetness, resulting in a slight dryness on the palate. The bitter aftertaste shown and long duration, but high intensity does not become smooth. A high drinkability that matches the Summer Rio de Janeiro!

Bottle from ICA Maxi Eurostop in Örebro. Light floral smell with some light fudge and caramel notes. Similar taste. Higher carbonation then expected. Drinkable, but not exciting.

Smells most foam web. Yes the taste is really bitter and watery. Very bitter aftertaste which fills the upper part of the mouth briefly. Okay to drink. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Peter_L (1244) - SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2014
Flaska från ICA. Kopparfärgad vätska. Doftar blommigt och med en hint av apelsin. Vattnig och brödig i smaken.

mzaar (2837) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2014
Flaska från ICA Hajen, Varberg. Bärnstensfärgad öl med stort smutsvitt skum. Dofter av karamell, malt och gräs. Smakinslag av karamell, malt och lätt fruktig avslutning. Medelbeska. Medel mot tunn kropp. En helt okey bitter.

Franzen (501) - SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2014
Fruity sweet aroma, actually a bit reminescent of grilled marshmallows. Clear orange, white head. Sweet caramelly taste with a balancing bitterness, could have been more bitter though. Low to average carbonation, light body. A bit too caramelly otherwise nice
