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.

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.

Nice color. Too little foam. Ale, bobbling. Overall quiet good. Would buy it again.

Flaska från ICA. Kopparfärgad vätska. Doftar blommigt och med en hint av apelsin. Vattnig och brödig i smaken.

mzaar (1736) - 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 (353) - 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

SamTheBarrel (496) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2014
330ml brown bottle, poured into a Pint glass. Appearance is clear amber with a medium sized beige head, that reduced quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma of caramel and rye sourdough bread. Flavours of caramel, rye sourdough bread, orange peels and toffee. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light-medium bodied, slightly oily texture and average carbonation. Quite flavorful for a 3.5% ABV, one of the best low ABV beers available in Swedish convenience stores.

NallePalle (153) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2014
A pleasant bitter, interesting aroma and a prominent taste. Quite at the thin side of texture. Finish is allright.

Vighals (1394) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2014

Seffle (196) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2014
33cc bottle from Hemköp. Clear dark amber with a nice, creamy white head. Quite a nice malty nose with some a very good bitterness. Of course a bit watery as it is a folköl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
