Doftar faantastiskt. Blommande fruktträd. God och välbalanserad. Sigtuna har övertygat mig. Slutsats: mycket god brygd

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A clear one, golden in color. Off-white head. Grainy pale malts and fruityness on the nose. Some piney notes. Medium body, a bit hard on carbonation. Fruity flavor with some bitterness. Short finish. Sure a pleasant beer, for session use, but quite boring, so I’d probably find something else. 120301

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5 L bottle, picked up @Vinmonopolet, Vika. Two fingers of dense yellow-blond foamy head, upon a near clear orangey-golden body. Just the right aroma. Clean and refined, fresh and bready malt aroma. Some nice floral hops shines trough after a while. Clean malt flavor as well. Light sweet, light sourish. Subtle bitterness, mild earthy flavoring hops. A light bitter, gentle sourish bread-like finish. This is a very well crafted and moreish lager. A spot on Vienna.
